'I have learned that making a living is not the same things as making life'. –Maya Angelou.
Me and my friend, one day were talking about our plans after our college life. We talked on various topics like life-settlement, marriage plans, work-life thought after and many more. But both of us were in a great thought after our discussion. The reason was 'Can we be a workaholic?'
Workaholic is worse than alcoholism. We both have seem families fighting among themselves regarding the issues of money they earn. The individual loses the passion of working and gets more attracted towards their addiction. Being workaholic can create a big problem in your life. It may destroy the relationship of yours with others, those who take care of yours. It can hamper your health and body. Health issues like anxiety, stress can occur. Your soul cannot take long hours of work. It needs relaxation.
In Indian culture, your jobs are the stepping stones of your identity. There are many on-call jobs like doctors, nurses, mother and these cannot be ignored. When people quest for strive in success in which they want and cannot maintain balance, workaholic people are created. People have actually forgot the real taste of life and success. You work hard, you make money. You do it for yourself. That is not life. You go out, you seek for people who need your help. You make their lives better. You become that sponge which can absorb all the negativity and you become that person who can emit beautiful positive vibes and when you realize that you have changed someone's life and because of you that person did not give up. That is the day when you live.
