Do What You Love?|

Over and over again I hear the advice "Do what you love" and that working for just money is a path to misery. And while that isn't exactly wrong (and I encourage anyone to follow their dreams), it's not really... complete advice.
Some of us work jobs we don't like, not because there isn't something else we'd rather be doing, but because we have obligations to fulfill. I have rent, bills, car insurance... stuff that I can't afford to keep paying if I were to quit the job which I don't really love.
I wish my living costs were low enough where I could leave my job, or that there were people able to financially float me while I tried to make it... if those are options for you -- great!
But there's something frustrating about seeing "Quit that boring job! Do what you love!" advice.
It's just so... incomplete. It doesn't really tell you how
