A balanced must be reached for anything...a salary for me may be upper hand...who works for nothing? A job that brings Self satisfaction and just pays enough for food and nothing more than that, compared to a job that you may not exactly look forward too but buys you luxury? I know bread and jam are important..but realistically speaking - i would like a salary that pays not just for my food, but also for my holiday , who doesnt like an extra bonus? ....i love buying gifts, not for myself but for others...so i need an income that feeds my satisfaction, my desires...an income that satisfies me. Even if i hated it, i would still work - work for my loved ones, work for myself...work for a better standard life.
My Dad at the moment has a great income, stable job and is able to comfort his family's life...but their was a time when my dad absolutely hated his job because of his manager. His manager would always pick on him for no reason, bully him in a way, bring him down ..but he never left the job...he kept going, kept slaving away, kept working, kept quiet....for us...for our satisfaction. Their are times in life when you hate something but still keep quiet about it because you have loved ones to take care off...you automatically start loving the job because if feeds you and provides more than salt in your house.
A job with a low income but you love doing it - But if you were given the choice of a higher income job, would you reject ? i wouldnt reject it...i would go there, slave myself, hate it first...but then get used to it...
in life you always hate things...but you get used to things..and start loving it.
you are so rite here ROA, i never thought of it like that but heck i wud do the same coz after all we all love our families and if working in in crappy job that pays well affords my family a stable comfortable life then heck yeah i would do it after all life is all about sacrifices and that includes job wise after all its for your family at the end of the day.
