    And don't forget one of the Biblical reasons for work...

    Work so that you may have to give to people in need. Eph 4:28

    In order, pray and read Scripture. Regularly exercise. Be pragmatic about passion, and get a job.

    First get the sense that you can stand on your own two feet, then start pursuing passion.
    That was a side of you that I never saw! Cool.

    That was also a side of you I never saw or expected to see, some humility even in front of us deluded religious folk. Some attitudes just get better responses from me.

    I'll be praying for you.

    Trump is basically "Bruce Wayne pretending to be a foppish retarded billionaire" tier genius, in case nerds need a simpler metaphor.
