I do not think the value of life should be based on how much money you make of having a horrible job just to support your family in any way you can, it does not seem fair to yourself. If you had to choose to either have a job that you dislike for the rest of your life until retirement and make a good amount of money or to have a job you love and have a passion for for the rest of your life until retirement and not make as much money, but you love your job so much you can work overtime and make the same amount of money as the first choice, which would you choose?

I think the wise choice would be to have a job that you love and have a passion for even though you do not make as much money, you can always work overtime or do your job so well that you get promoted. You also shouldn’t settle for something that makes your life miserable. Most people would agree you would want to die doing something you are passionate about rather struggling with something you can’t keep up with.

it is for your lovers. Your work is doing to fill a large part of your life, and the only way
to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do
great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep...
