    Exclamation Money

    is over rated.

    So much of our time is spent with people we don't like for money (aka a job).

    And our loved ones get the left overs (aka when you get home/the weekend/holidays).

    I hate this cycle.

    I like work. It keeps me busy and focused on a goal. Balances my life. Pays my bills and gives me money to play with.

    Becoming a nasty person because of a hatred for your job and colleagues should be avoided, however.

    Good point.

    I don't hate my job... I hate having to work to live.

    I want to be free.

    40 hours a week is less than 1/4th of your life. Look on the bright side!

    There are so many people that work double that just to eat.

    The first fact: When you factor in sleep (50%+) with work (25%+)... you get only 25% of your life to live... truly live...

    Second fact: Breaks my heart. And sometimes, they don't even eat enough.

    Big picture: is depressing.

    So you work an hour for every hour you play. Have you ever known people that don't work? They're not very well-rounded.

    You might be able to do something about it. Like you could get a job where you work at home or start a family business. Then you would be able to spend time more time with your family. Or you might find more work satisfaction if you found a job that contributed to society in some way that you really believe in. There are ways to improve the situation.

    Sometimes work sucks. But being homeless or starving to death sucks more. I prefer work.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."
