"Unused creativity is not benign." In other words, you can't ignore it. If you have a tendency for creative thinking and a passion for creative work, but are finding there's little room in your life for it, make room. Because it matters. "If you don’t give [creativity] an outlet, it doesn't just sit there and idle in neutral," says Gilbert. "It turns on you and makes you feel small and depressed and useless. If I am not actively creating something in my life, I'm actively destroying something."
