Most people think that it is easy to combine their personal life with their work agenda, but this is a mistake. There are many things that could be done in an attempt to achieve such a goal, but they are likely to fail most of the times. This is inevitable, as our modern-day society is getting busier and busier, resulting in little to no time left for our personal pleasures. Working and grinding hard is what most individuals do. The list below shows that not everyone is capable of enjoying a work-life balance.
1. The insurance
Here is how this couple’s balance was completely shattered. They had no chance of seeing this coming, and nobody does, actually. We understand that their personal life will be greatly affected by the work they need to put in the time to come to restore the funds.
2. The hours
This is not true, of course, and the person who posted this has a point. We don’t own our time the way the rich do, as they have employees and servants to take care of all the things we need to do ourselves, meaning that our life is mostly work. Either at home doing chores or at an office.
3. The life
This is one of the things that people need to understand. We cannot simply close our eyes and hold our breath for 30 years until the time to relax comes. This is not the goal and should never will be. We need to try to maintain a work-life balance every day.
4. The age
This is a good question to ask, and we know that some people might have the answer to that question, too. We know that things are probably about to change in the future, but today’s reality is still the same as it was 20 or even 30 years ago. We work so we can make a living.
5. The cycle
Some people are deprived of their interests and hobbies to the point they are no longer interested in them. Hobbies require time, energy, and money, meaning that the work agenda of a person may consume all of these things completely.
6. The clock
Well, here is a thought that could be discussed by anyone, and it should be, too. We have never actually thought of our commute time to be included as part of our workday, but it should. Sure enough, we understand that there are people who will not like the idea, mostly employers.
7. The working
Well, of course that nobody ever wanted to work, and there is no reason for them to want that, as the main goal of someone’s desire to be engaged in something is to be productive and to achieve a goal, no spend their life doing the same thing over and over again.
8. The conclusion
We guess that this is a valid post, and we are quite certain that this person knows how things are for real. This is not the purpose or the concept of homework, of course, but what this person has stated here makes a lot of sense and we agree with it.
9. The poor person
Sometimes, people are not that keen on writing long comments. They prefer to post something short and simple, even hilarious. This is what happened here. This witty user shared what changes over the years of hard work. Most of us don’t get wealthy.
10. The break
There is no wonder why this person is tired. It seems that some people are not even in their mid-30s when they already feel the burden of working round the clock to make a living, and we understand that those who are in a similar position would relate instantly.
11. The people
Well, this is a post that makes a lot of sense and nobody could deny what it states. There are many cases that the post describes
12. The workplace
Well, there you have it – some people are forced to put up with an impossible work-life balance that nobody could accept as a normal thing, but it seems that many employees are forced to do such things in order to not be threatened to lose their jobs.
13. The rejection
There are many people out there still preaching about the things that they claim are the path to success – trying to work as much as you can until you see results, and build on top of that later. This is not the kind of thing to follow as an example, as you need the rest and the quality time of relaxation.
14. The brainwash
Many employers act smart and try to create the kind of conditions where they exploit their workers, but try to disguise this as something to be proud of. We understand that this may work here or there, but most people have already realzied this.
15. The activities
Now, this is one post that suggests how things should be done, and we understand that those focused on working round the clock will never be as happy as the society described here. This is a nice example to set for anyone, and we wish we worked with that agenda.
16. The take
This post speaks the truth, and we are not the kind of people to accept it as a controversial one. In fact, we guess that this person found the easiest way to explain the financial situation of many people, and it is sadly the truth nobody can deny, too.
17. The job
We understand that people are not that aware of this happening, but we understand that are many things related to this post that are happening to people all the time and they never realize they are part of it. We wish it wasn’t so, but it is.
18. The speaker
Now, this is the kind of idea that is just crazy enough to work, and we are quite certain that there are people who would gladly pay money to listen to someone who is able to remind them that there is no happiness in a life full of work and no pleasure.
19. The Friday
Jim Carrey is the favorite comedian of tens of millions of people, but he is always capable of telling the truth about life in the most serious of ways imaginable. Here is one of his tweets that became viral for a reason. He speaks the truth and points out what is wrong with today’s work/life balance.
20. The cultures
We are quite certain that some people out there are already starting to realize that working nonstop in order to pay the bills is not the kind of life they would like to live, and they try to shift to being themselves, to relax and to live their dreams if they can.
21. The companies
This is a situation that will further develop and we believe that things will never be the same again, as it became apparent that many people can be just as productive from their homes as if they were present at the office. This will change corporate structures for good.
22. The rich people
There is nothing we could add to this post, and we are quite certain most people would agree with it as well. We can relate to what this person thinks because all we want it not an excessive amount of money, but the free time to do whatever we please.
23. The last words
This is one of the people who reshaped the world, yet never got the recognition and respect they deserve. We know that Tesla should have been a respected person and an honored scientist, but instead of having a great life, he was mocked for helping mankind.
24. The working
Well, this is one really curious excuse for this person to use to not work in December, and we are certain that some people would also relate to and support this post. We understand that it would be an awesome thing to have the whole December off, but it will never happen.
25. The day
This is as honest as a person can get, but this is totally fine, as the user speaks nothing but the truth. It might sound funny and witty at first, but it is a fact that working too much deprives you of the means to have fun and do what you love.
26. The people
We know that some people are not that keen on thinking too much about the basics of modern life. They simply accept it as they way things are and continue being part of it because everyone else is doing it.
27. The norm
Here is another opinion that we agree with. The working hours we put in every week hardly leave us time to enjoy whatever we please. That disrupts the healthy work-life balance.
