â€œThe thing women have yet to learn is nobody gives you power. You just take it. â€ â€• Roseanne Barr
A choice between career and men is surely the toughest choice anyone can come across. If you choose to follow career, you surely are able to pay your bills and have recognition but will a heart break let you enjoy your professional success too? Will it fill the void that the man whom you left created? Similarly, if you choose love of your life, then there is a possibility that it is not love and you are just confusing infatuation with love and one day you might also get over him! If you are also standing at cross roads and wondering which way to go, I will suggest to choose what you are extremely passionate about. Is it your career or love? If you choose what you are passionate about then you might not end up with regrets. There are many factors that you must consider that will ease the process of making a decision. Letâ€™s take a look at them:
Money cannot always buy happiness!
Money can surely not make you happy eternally and while a good career maybe your short term goal, it can never be your long term choice. Remember nobody ever regretted not making enough money on their death beds. Choosing to follow your passion might not be a big monetary success but in the long term, it is a source of satisfaction and peace that is also very expensive and rare commodity and not everyone is blessed with it. Passion is something that wonâ€™t let you sleep at night, so choosing to follow your passion will lead you to success as you will work with zest and wonâ€™t ever get frustrated or tired of your work and will soon move on and forget the guy you left for your career.
Your man might stop loving you one day!
Imagine what you will be left with if your man wakes up one day and tells you he does not love you anymore. What will you be left with other than remorse if it was just an emotional choice. But if you were always considerate about having a family life and having kids and raising them was your passion and you chose to follow your passion then you will not be affected by the incident much and will surely find another man for you sooner or later. Passion fuels your fire in a way that you can move mountains with that.
In a nutshell, choose what you are more passionate about so that you are better able to cope up with any problems that arise later on because no one has seen the future and whatever choice you will make, you will have to sacrifice something for that. So, always choose what you dream of and what sets your soul on fire. It will surely not make you regret.
As Rumi puts it rightly, â€œLet yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love, it will not lead you astray.â€
