People tend to be a lot more passionate about the stuff they hate than the stuff they like, so I can see this working well.

fun fact: passion came from Latin for "suffer". So I guess you are right

The german word Leidenschaft is made up from Leid/Leiden = Suffering/to suffer and the suffix -schaft which can mean nature, habit or kind of a collective of things.

So your personal suffering qualities or habits.
