That’s what no ever tells you at school. Everyone is so focused on getting good marks, and going to a good university, and landing a great job.

No ever tells you about having to work until your 70, (regardless if you want to or not) so you can pay the bills and look after your family. No one ever tells you about the workplace bullying that you have to put up with to a certain extent, so you have money to live on. No one tells you anything about work. They just leave it up to you to figure it out yourself.

Work isn’t all bad though, it does have some positives.

Job satisfaction

Friendships/Companionship

Focus/Money

It also gets you out of the house/It gives you something positive to do.

My advice to you is don’t think too much about it, work is work, make the most of it…and look for the silver lining.
