Most people in the United States have too much responsibility. Individuals’ workload has become so excessive that they do not have an appropriate work/life balance. They put in a hard days work and go home just to do it all over again the next day. There is more to life than just going to work and coming home, but that’s the type of lifestyle employees have throughout the country. We know people have to do what they have to do in order to take care of their families, but there is a fine line between working and enjoying life. Most people just work, work, and work some more without nothing to show for it. They complain about how the bills are building up and complain about how money seems to leave their hands faster than it comes in. They get caught up in the rat race where they start chases the money and caring less about themselves. As a result, 9 to 5ers continue carry out other people’s dream and put their dream on hold. They give so much, but the companies want them to give even more. If working all the time without enjoying life is so one-sided, then why do 99%of the people do it? It is almost like society has programmed us to work. People put work first and family and self-care second, and when they make the money, they often are so tired that they cannot enjoy it. Then eventually we start getting our self-worth mix up with our net-worth which is not an effective balance. Workers, there is so much more to life than work, so go out there and live!
