Let’s face it…work is a mess…for many people, it’s gone and not coming back. And for those left? I wonder how many people actually like what they do as opposed to just getting a paycheck.
Our politicians think they can fix the work mess. Both left and right flail away about work in ways that more match their particular pair of rose-colored glasses (thank you, Immanuel Kant!) but what if what we are going through with work is….a divorce?
Work doesn’t want us anymore; but we cling to it, hope it will still love us, lie to ourselves about how much we still love it, and Work is the party that sees through the self deceiving BS. Neither party is sure where they are going next; they just don’t want to be together, deep down, any more. We say it’s necessary to stay together, but if you’ve ever been that situation, all you can think about is getting out, getting away from that which is causing you a lot of pain, necessity or no.
People getting divorced can’t see an upside when they’re going through it, all they are feeling is pain. But once apart, you can begin to heal yourself and come back around to “being productive”, which, in this case, we have no idea what that means.
