Has anyone ever regretted choosing a career over love?

Has anyone ever regretted choosing a career over love?

I wouldn't say that I regret it, but I wish I could find a sexy girl who could share my life together. I believe that career is the key to life. Because let's face it, we all need money to survive; especially in this economy. But after all, life shouldn't always be about work. We should go out and enjoy what we can do. As I previously wrote here, I used to be shallow and idiotic. Sometimes a career is not enough to keep you happy. Humans are social creatures. We are not designed to work. Although it is the key to obtaining resources to do what we enjoy (money). But we are not robots. U.S

I wouldn't say that I regret it, but I wish I could find a sexy girl who could share my life together. I believe that career is the key to life. Because let's face it, we all need money to survive; especially in this economy. But after all, life shouldn't always be about work. We should go out and enjoy what we can do. As I previously wrote here, I used to be shallow and idiotic. Sometimes a race is not enough to keep you happy. Humans are social creatures. We are not designed to work. Although it is the key to obtaining resources to do what we enjoy (money). But we are not robots. We are humans.

Most people would not want their entire life to be all about work and nothing else. Unless you are the type of person who enjoys nothing more than sitting on your couch all day and watching television. I will say that now I look back at many of my friends who are getting married and having children, I am sorry I did not date earlier, while most of them already have families of their own.

So I would say don't be a narrow minded person. Keep your doors open to opportunities. If you have coworkers or classmates who invite you to dinner or lunch, take it. Unless you're very busy that night. I mean, how else are you going to find your beloved by sitting at home and doing nothing?

Career and love are like two important ingredients in life that each of us needs to make the perfect recipe, but life comes with options and one needs to make some tough decisions in life.

But if it's ever about Carrera y Amor, there will never be a choice. A true love will always respect your career. And prioritizing doesn't mean sacrificing something for something. You can organize everything, and yes, of course, you will lead an amazing life.

As life progresses, the career may remain the same or change depending on what you want at that point in life, but your love

Career and love are like two important ingredients in life that each of us needs to make the perfect recipe, but life comes with options and one needs to make some tough decisions in life.

But if it's ever about Carrera y Amor, there will never be a choice. A true love will always respect your career. And prioritizing doesn't mean sacrificing something for something. You can organize everything, and yes, of course, you will lead an amazing life.

As life progresses, the career may remain the same or change depending on what you want at that point in life, but your love life will turn into marriage and that is the point where you have to make a big decision and it will depend on your partner. much.

  • You have a great dream, but being with him makes you feel that you will not be able to fulfill it until the end.
  • Both you and your partner have big dreams that don't allow you to be on a main course together.
  • You and your partner have jobs in different parts of the world.
  • You and your partner have different dream cities in mind.

This choice can be difficult and affect your career or love. But it is you who has to achieve it and I can assure you that regretting it is not a good feeling. And this amount of regret will not allow you to live life.

Sacrifice is part of love. And you will have to sacrifice things for your love of life and your love of career. The choice is yours, make sure you don't regret it….

The fact that you are even asking the question speaks volumes. It varies from person to person. Someone might prioritize their career and be very happy with all the fame, respect, and money, while another might not. Who said that when you choose love, you don't get respect? Do you see people who have chosen love begging in a station? But they may not earn as much as the other lot, they may not have a very big car or a big big house. On the other hand, people could be just as happy with this way of life and a little love instead of big profits and no one to share things with.

On the other hand, people could be just as happy with this way of life and a little love instead of big profits and no one to share things with.

Happiness is only real when it is shared.

But in a world like ours, choosing your career would be an easy option. The other needs courage, although it is totally personal.

Believe me, you will never regret choosing a career over love, unless you are a millionaire or billionaire.

The respect and appreciation of the people around you because of the work done by you feels amazing.

Also, the incredible money he makes quickly fades from those memories and the shitty concept of love.

You can always find love in your life and each love feels the same as the first love.

Excellent question.

I chose my path out of college. Paths should say: I did what I normally do. I wanted my cake and I also wanted to eat that fool. I'm Troy Jensen, I can have it all!

We got divorced ten years ago, it's a black and white decision. It affected me deeply: leaving our condo in Century City (West LA) was the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. I get sick even thinking about it.

And the result? I am more successful than most versions of the wildest dream. I am committed, but I see that the attempt n. 2 slowly fades away. And tonight I'm alone in New York City. Tomorrow I'll get in
my new Mercedes

Excellent question.

I chose my path out of college. Paths should say: I did what I normally do. I wanted my cake and I also wanted to eat that fool. I'm Troy Jensen, I can have it all!

We got divorced ten years ago, it's a black and white decision. It affected me deeply: leaving our condo in Century City (West LA) was the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. I get sick even thinking about it.

And the result? I am more successful than most versions of the wildest dream. I am committed, but I see that the attempt n. 2 slowly fades away. And tonight I'm alone in New York City. Tomorrow
I'll get into my new Mercedes S63 AMG and drive to Teterboro Airport, where my company's Gulfstream G550 awaits me. And I'll take my billionth trip of the last decade. All on my own.

I do not regret my decision. Unless it's 4:30 am and my lifelong insomnia takes over, and I wish she were here. No matter how tired she talked to me all night on my really bad nights; many times he made me sleep for a while. She just remarried, we are still good friends, the best we can. Your first child will be born, in one of life's cruel ironies ... on my birthday, March 21, quite funny.

I got what I wanted, everything I ever wanted.

But I walk this world alone.

Would I change my decision? There is no use even contemplating that question ... the past is yesterday. Missing. Tonight I could say yes; Tomorrow the huge personality that is Troy will light up another room and I won't think about that again for a while. I did it.

But sometimes I wish I could share all these moments with her. It is a difficult, difficult decision. I was destined for a higher path, I have always said that.

But the nights are incredibly long when you are alone with the moon, wondering if you chose the right path. Again, these are the rare moments, I usually keep moving forward and love my life.

But I walk these streets alone

Food for thought ...

It depends.

Well, no ... in the end it doesn't depend, because the question being asked is "would you do it", and I did, so I know that if exactly the same circumstances arose, I would. Yes.

Some people will say that there are other fish in the sea, others will say that there are other satisfying jobs. Some people lead with their heads and others with their hearts, and I think * that * is what really depends.

I mean I wouldn't do it again. I mean "it's about time someone did everything they can for me for a change." But that is a me that is not in your position saying that, forgetting how much love

Some people will say that there are other fish in the sea, others will say that there are other satisfying jobs. Some people lead with their heads and others with their hearts, and I think * that * is what really depends.

I mean I wouldn't do it again. I mean "it's about time someone did everything they can for me for a change." But that is a me that is not in your position saying that, forgetting how much love can change things.

If I had less to lose in my career, as I did when this dilemma presented itself for the last time in my life ... I know that I would never be as selfish, if I were truly in love as deeply as I was at the time. . And I know that I would not be willing to let go of that love.

Because the "there are other jobs" people are right.

As it stands, society is becoming increasingly mobile. We change jobs and even careers over and over again in our adult lives, and instead of the responsibility it once was, it may even be nice if your resume shows that kind of flexibility. I would, if it was that or nothing, because a job is not my life, my * life * is my life.

Yes, there are other fish in the sea, but you don't want to make a life with anyone. You want to make a living out of it. And this fish only exists here, right now. There are no others of your love.

Remember: none of us know what to do. Because we don't know your heart.

But me, I would burn forests and level mountains, stop hurricanes and swallow whole oceans for a man I loved with all my heart. As I expected it to do for me.

Then, of course, I would change jobs.

It's unfair to come to a conclusion that says you don't love me enough. I can relate to the boy, I made a similar choice myself, although not exactly in the same position.

So there was a girl that I really, really liked. She was perfect in all terms for me. One day, out of nowhere, he proposed to her. Sounds like a dream, right? The girl you really like proposes to you. I declined. Did I make the right choice? Who knows.

Let me tell you why I said no to the prospect of a relationship.

She is a wonderful person. But I had things to do (career-wise), and no matter how much I liked it, I knew that the p

Let me tell you why I said no to the prospect of a relationship.

She is a wonderful person. But I had things to do (career wise), and regardless of how much I liked it, I knew that the phase that was coming up in my life was very difficult, in which I could not invest enough time in the relationship as well as my work. . This was really important, because I knew that when the day comes when I have no choice but to virtually ignore my partner, I would hurt her and I would hurt myself. That I was hurt was not really my concern, but the possibility that she was hurt, sad, deprived of joy and that it is the reason for it, is a horrible feeling. It takes its toll on both, both in the short term and in the long term. I just couldn't imagine being the only reason that keeps her sad. Some might say that she would have been happy just for me to be with her, but that's not really being with her. it is more like a paper arrangement than an emotional bond. And in my career, I wasn't really at a point where I had a chance to make a commitment. And I'm not materialistic, I'm not looking for a lot of money, but that wasn't a point where I could have made any adjustments. It was the hard truth and he knew it.

Like the truth that this will not end well. And after thinking about it a bit, I made a difficult decision. Although I am young, I am not up to date with the dating rules today. For me, in a relationship, you're either in or you're out. I don't know and I don't like half measures. And so I decided that I had to say no, regardless of how happy I would be if I said yes. So I really liked it, but I chose my career anyway. I told you all this, because I thought it was only fair that you know the fact that there will come a point where I will not be able to invest. She appreciated my honesty and is still my good friend. Once in the middle of a conversation, he said, subtle as can be: "Don't make me wait too long." But that is something different.

Coming to your problem. A conclusion cannot be reached by your choice. You can't say that I didn't love you enough. Only he knows how difficult the choice was for him. For all we know, it could be ripped. Maybe you had a thought process similar to mine. Perhaps, he thinks he is saving them some pain.

My decision and yours could be wrong. But humans have flaws. We try to make the best decisions we can, but not everything has a happy ending. But the end does not determine the quality of the trip. His love for you cannot be inferred from his decision, but rather from the fact of how much difficulty and pain he struggled to reach that conclusion.

There is also the possibility that nothing I said really applies to you. But hey, there are only 2 people who know what those circumstances are, but you already know. :)

Most of the people who advise you are surely your sympathizers.


My school had a beautiful rose garden. Every day a boy (a hotelier) got up early in the morning to cover a rose from that garden.

As soon as I enter my classroom, a beautiful rose was already under my desk. Without a doubt, a smile is always drawn on my face. The magnificent color and softness of the roses of different colors every day seem incomparable to me for a tender age.

For a few days I ignored even asking anyone to keep it. My friends who would come to my desk would tell me "Shiva, he is incredibly beautiful", can I have it if you don't like it?

My school had a beautiful rose garden. Every day a boy (a hotelier) got up early in the morning to cover a rose from that garden.

As soon as I enter my classroom, a beautiful rose was already under my desk. Without a doubt, a smile is always drawn on my face. The magnificent color and softness of the roses of different colors every day seem incomparable to me for a tender age.

For a few days I ignored even asking anyone to keep it. My friends who would come to my desk would tell me "Shiva, he is incredibly beautiful", can I have it if you don't like it? Most of the time, my roses land in another hand. But one day, a yellow rose with some shades of red. it was present on my desk. I loved it, it was a beautiful work of art. I felt "God is the true artist. I can't resist keeping it.

I kept that rose. I came home after lunch and went to train. I arrived late on the night of training, had dinner, and went back to my study room. Open my bag to do homework assigned by the school teachers. I opened my bag and there was this beautiful yellow rose. I took it out and put one side away with my book.

I was studying, but a part of me was thinking about this guy and the trouble he was taking to connect got on me every morning.

I slept with that rose next to me. I woke up and completely forgot about the rose that was in a hurry to go to school. Well spend the day. I followed the same routine, came back from school and went back to training. Everything was going well. (No sign of that pretty rose and its beauty.)

I was having dinner with my father. Dad asked hey, how is your school going?

Me: - All great dad.

Him: - When will the exams start?

Me: - I guess soon, the calendar is not over yet.

Him: - You know that school life is like driving a car with a lot of traffic. You need total concentration to get to your destination. You will meet a lot of people on your way. Some will try to get ahead of you, some will distract you, some may even jump in front of you, but if you have the eagerness to achieve what you have dreamed of, you will achieve all this distraction and you will only focus on your goal.

Me: - I smiled at the smell of yellow rose in his voice.

Yes!! he saw it go up and silently suggested what was best for me "choose career over love" everything has a time. Be independent, be self-sufficient and you will get love too …… but after reaching your destination.

The destination was: this time the completion of Dehradun's training.

From an idealistic point of view, it shouldn't be a choice. Ideally, a good relationship will give you the support you need to be successful in your career and a good career will help you with the confidence and finances that will improve the relationships in your life.

From an opportunistic point of view, since you are interested in women, it would be smarter to go for the career first, as success in the career would likely improve your overall chances with women, giving you a better chance of finding one. good relationship.

Of course, this does not take into account that more options does not necessarily mean that you are more likely to make the right one. This also does not address the fact that during the hardships that you are likely to face while pursuing a career, you will not have someone to really lean on.

From a Buddhist point of view, you should appreciate what you have rather than focusing only on what you can get. We worry about all possible outcomes and generally overestimate how badly something will affect us (there have been studies to show it) and in some way, although things generally end up much better than we have predicted on average, on those rare occasions when they end badly (and it's usually not even as bad as we think it would be), we still end up disappointed.
In one way or around, putting a lot of emphasis on the future rarely has a positive impact on current happiness.
But can't you go through life without trying to predict things? Yes, that's true, but we usually overdo it. Happiness always seems to be on the river bank, as soon as we get to something else.
If you can appreciate the present moment, then it won't matter so much what's happening to you (obviously I'm not saying just sit there and do nothing and become homeless and hope to be happy, but you get the point).

And we all know which people are the happiest.

Your first priority should be your career.

At some point in our life we ​​think that loving a person is everything. But what if you give 100% to your love and one day your love leaves for some reason?

But if you give 100% to develop your career instead of focusing only on love, then you can achieve a lot in your life.

  • Love can wait for you. But the race won't. If it's gone, you won't get it back. Time will not return.
  • Love won't feed you when you're hungry, but the race will.
  • Love can betray you at any point in your life, but career won't.
  • Love can give you temporary happiness, but the race will.

  • Love can betray you at any point in your life, but career won't.
  • Love can give you temporary happiness, but the race will keep you happy permanently.
  • Career can give you a name, fame, respect, money, but love will not.

If you don't focus on your career now, then the so-called love of your life won't be there either.

Concentrate on making your career first, love will automatically come to you.

If you want to prioritize only love, then love developing your career and prioritize that.

A little example,

Imagine that you have a great disease. It should be traded soon and before that, you need to deposit a large amount of fees. At that time in your life "Love" will be the solution to deposit your fees. NO ..... all you need is "money" and where will that money come from if you are unemployed. Then, lying in the hospital bed, you will realize that I wish I had made my career a priority.

I'm not saying don't love You should love But love wisely so it doesn't affect your future.

Atlast, concluding here, I will say that if you want your love to be with you forever, first prioritize your career.

The truth is hard to accept, but the truth is true.

First in the world the concept of love arose. Love itself was a very positive thing. If someone says they love him, it means only love.

But over time, the evil did not spare love and slandered it with words like 'true', 'false', 'long distance', 'immature', 'trustworthy', etc.

The concept of love is being replaced by words like 'committed', 'complicated relationship', 'committed', etc.

So the truth is that when you start to see someone, you like everything, but things get difficult when you know the weaknesses of others and that becomes unacceptable for others.

So, the truth is that when you start to see someone, you like everything but things get difficult when you know the weakness of the other and that thing becomes unacceptable for the other and finally separates by making excuses as if we are not compatible with each other. , our way of thinking was different, our family was different and many more excuses and remember if you are not going to have a good career then how could a girl marry you since her family will not allow to marry an unemployed person (the same girl who defended female equality and empowerment and my choice a bit).

So the moral of the story is that if there is love, it will always be there for you. You don't need to worry about what could separate the two of you. And there is nothing like true love or emotional love or any love. Love is just love. It may be less or it may be more or there may be no love, as if it could be something of 'my choice' or appearance, money, attitude could also add to it. So don't worry about love. Worry about your career. Once it's gone, everything will disappear. Your family, friends, and love have some excuses too.

This question, for me, should be the other way around. I chose money over my passion. He could have been a singer; I should have been a singer. Singing always made me happy. It was my safe place. I sang soprano all through high school, in my school show choir, competed and won district and state vocal competitions, and everyone who heard my voice told me it was my gift.

But life intervened. After graduating from high school, I had to move on my own and the responsibilities of supporting myself took over. I did not have the means to survive as a "struggling artist" and I chose,

Times have changed, I have aged and my voice is no longer as clear and pure as it used to be. Do I regret not following my passion ...? ABSOLUTELY. However, if I had the opportunity to follow my dreams again and face the same options as before; Would I make the same decision? Probably…
