I sit in a bus, on my way home from work. I am beyond exhausted and stressed. But then I know I will rise up early tomorrow to get to work. Why do I do that? I have no idea.
I’ve heard that you shouldn’t spend your life on something you don’t find joy in. You shouldn’t work in a place that doesn’t bring you joy. I am sure we have all heard it too.
One thing I have come to realize is that no work is easy. Even having a job that gives you joy comes with its dose of stress and discomfort at some point. But I think that’s better than being where there is no joy at all right?
Deep down, I choose to believe that I decide where I end up. I make the choices. I choose if I stay in a depressing and frustrating job or call it quits and find a better one. But why is it so hard to do so. Why is it so difficult to put our beliefs to action? Why is it easier to just stay where you are and accept the discomfort?
Why do we do what we do? And how can we do better?
