What do you think the importance is of fully devoting to something when it comes to having a sense of fulfillment in life?

It works unless you realize your wrong/misguided.

Then, and working up to that point, it might cause a bit of very distressing struggle.

I'd say you should aim to be Fully Engaged with what you care about... but try to keep perspective..
The word "devotion" kind of implies an uncritical, absolute, conformity with.. that rigidity can cause trouble :P

that's what I'd consider my sage advice, but most people don't need to hear that :)
"He who does not know how to put his will into things at least puts a meaning into them: that is, he believes there is a will in them already."

Metaphysics:
"The science.. which deals with the fundamental errors of mankind - but as if they were the fundamental truths."
