This has been one of the latest trials I have found myself in and currently am working through. It calls into question the very reason for working, trying, being... I have said before that businesses are like relationships, well this analogy (like most) breaks down quickly. A business cannot provide us with warmth on a cold night, listening ear on a bad day, or any kind of intimate personal connection! Things it can do: mask fears by coddling our ego, occupying our psyche, and potentially destroying any chance of a relationship with a real human.
Maybe I just need to figure out what work/life balance really means?
