Headcanon - literally everyone in the Tolkienverse, from the Silmarillion and the Unfinished Tales to the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings, has PTSD. Everyone.

“Don’t adventures ever have an end? I suppose not. Someone else always has to carry on the story. Well, it can’t be helped. I wonder if it’s any good trying to finish my book? But don’t let’s worry about it now—let’s have some real News! Tell me about the Shire!”
This is such a great quote from Bilbo because it tells you so much about him, about hobbits, and makes you think about the continuation of the “story.”
Bilbo, through all of his adventures, is still extremely attached to the Shire. The Shire is, of course, a place of peace for a very long time, and perhaps this is reflected in Bilbo’s love for it, or the love of the Shire by hobbits in general! Despite his travels, Bilbo is still a hobbit: he says “real” news, as if the news of the world outside of the Shire is utterly meaningless to him!
From here, we know that the story is passed on to Frodo. And there to Sam. But what happens after that? Who carries on the story from there? Why, it’s Elanorellë, Sam’s daughter! This story, unlike many we have seen in the past of great warriors of old, is not carried on only by men. A woman, whose name is very feminine (Sam names her after the flowers in Lorién), carries on the legacy of great heroes!
I know that Tolkien didn’t write many women and that some parts of their stories are pretty sexist, but things like this make his stories so unique and wonderful.

Bad: Hobbit pipeweed is probably just tobacco because [something from Tolkien’s unpublished letters].
Also bad: Pipeweed is totally marijuana. All hobbits are stoners.
Good: “Pipeweed” is a catch-all term for anything you can stick in a pipe and smoke. Some of it will give you a light nicotine buzz, and some of it will get you absolutely blasted out of your mind. Hobbits are perfectly aware which is which, but since their system of classification is based on what farm the pipeweed was grown on rather than what species of plants went into it, the distinctions are often opaque to outsiders. If a hobbit offers you a puff of “Old Toby”, make sure you know how old Toby likes his pipeweed before you accept!

In fact, it has been remarked by some that Hobbits' only real passion is for food.

Hobbits really are amazing creatures! You can learn all that there is to know about their ways in a month, and yet after a hundred years, they can still surprise you.

Do you ever feel so detached from the world because you’re constantly living in the fictional/fantasy worlds in your head given that reality is just too boring, too limiting, and too uneventful????

“As they sang the hobbit felt the love of beautiful things made by hands and by cunning and by magic moving through him, a fierce and jealous love, the desire of the hearts of dwarves. Then something Tookish woke up inside him, and he wished to go and see the great mountains, and hear the pine-trees and the waterfalls, and explore the caves, and wear a sword instead of a walking-stick. He looked out of the window. The stars were out in a dark sky above the trees.”
The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien
