How do you feel about it? If you have a girlfriend or wife that is a career woman, how do you feel if all she does is talk about work and all the people in it? And how the world revolves around her?
There are good things that come with being a career woman but there are alot of things that they miss out on true life. i want to hear all of your responses
I just notice that this career woman is always disappointed and stressed out. The harder she tries to fit in with people the more trouble it causes. I feel like she’s forcing herself into someone she really is not. But there is so much pressure on being successful which makes her act fake and causes a lot of awkwardness. Also, she feels like she has to find people that has similar goals and interest as her. But when she comes across similar people like her, she still comes back to square one again in disappointment because there are other things that she isn’t similar in. LOL, its like she will never be happy.
@honeyeater, I agree with you in the sense that since I’ve started doing research, each time more frequently I find people like the woman you described and less and less I see myself being one. It’s undoubtedly good that women have the same opportunities as men, are appointed to the same type of jobs… that’s not to question.
There’s so much more to life than work that it is silly to waste more than the necessary time thinking about it. When I look back and imagine how simple could life be if I had chosen a different path instead. I’d probably have a long term relationship, a stable job… On the other hand, it seems so much more thriling this way, to have the chance to do something different, innovate.
Definitely, I wouldn’t like to become the woman you described, nor to have a partner like that. I’ve set a rule to myself, to avoid being caught on that work-trap. As soon as I start looking for my keys, it’s time to forget work matters and go home, there is my sanctuary to rest, share the joy and love. If necessary I’ll stay at the office until later, but won’t work at home.
i currently am working at a job that’s 9-5 monday thru friday answering phones at a rehab.. many of my co workers have been here for 10+ years(and they are MISERABLE PEOPLE), and while the pay and benefits are really awesome, i can’t imagine wasting my life away like this for 10 years! i plan to quit once the weather gets nice again. that will give me time to fix my medical issues that need to be addressed with the insurance that i’m on while working here. a career is not for me. i don’t care how much money i do or don’t make, sitting all day in a stuffy office is not my cup of tea. i want to explore! i might be broke for the rest of my life but at least i’ll be happy.
