The purpose of this paper is to find out what passion means to oneself and why millennials fail to pursue their passion.
This phenomenological type of qualitative research was conducted through purposive sampling and by participation of 16 millennials.
The data were collected by an in depth semi-structured interview. All the interviews were transcribed and analyzed inductively.
Through this study we could understand what passion means to oneself and we could see that it is something that brings joy and is a driving force for some people, bringing content and motivating oneself. The study shows the dissonance and regrets faced due to the shift that millennials made and how they faced it. To understand the dissonance they went through, we observed their emotions like frustration, and even a season of depression they went through. Some of the coping mechanisms we found out were accepting the present, spiritual encouragement, developing new interests and social involvement among peers. The results of this study shows what caused them to shift from their passion to the current situation and participants explained the hindrances they faced in life like family challenges, uncertainty in industry, societal influence and lack of guidance. Finally, the study shows some reasons why millennials can’t pursue their passion at all, where participants express their constraints and how they don’t see any hope in future.
