Love is hard to find, especially when we are looking for something that is true. When you find the one, you would never think of letting go of this person. That someone will be your everything, and some would expect that the other person should or would see them in the same way. When you are in love, there is this profound affection for the other person. There are even people who would jeopardize their career just to be with the person they love. Why? Love has no reason, or love is simply the reason. The fact that love is hard to find can make people prioritize it more than their careers.
Meanwhile, your career is something that defines you. It determines what your future will be. Having a good career means having a good life. Having a career tends to motivate a person to do better. It pushes people to become highly competitive. After all, those who do well in the career front are often recognized by families, peers, and colleagues. Some people draw confidence from the attention or recognition they get, while others simply enjoy their profession.
If you decide to choose love, does this mean that you are turning down or abandoning great career opportunities over love? Some people who choose love first often ends up in a mess with their partner. Sometimes, they end up blaming the other person for altering their lives and making their lives turn sour. This turns love into hatred.
On the other hand, if you choose career, would this mean that you value career opportunities more than something that happens once in a lifetime? Would you consider this a waste or not?
|Love vs. Career|
Choosing between love and career still depends on what situation you are in. If a couple has been together for a long time, the adjustments that need to be made are often minimal, because both of them understand that they are preparing for the future. However, those who have only started dating and have not established a deep foundation for their relationship might find it difficult to juggle love and career at once.
Most people end up choosing love because they believe that money will not make them happy. Since most of my readers are still young, you might say that you do not need love to be happy. But, as you get older, you should not forget about looking after your personal lives. It is easy to feel contented when you have someone to share your success and blessings with.
