I started working 8 hours a day since my graduation. It was a good opportunity for a start, a position in a company that allowed me to learn new things and enter the corporate world. But there has been a year and my motivation was going down. So after a year and a half, I quit. I started teaching with flexible hours but the money was not enough. And from this point of view, it wasn’t that bad. After a while, I started another job 9 to 5 and got the same feeling of being in prison again. Then I found myself in writing. I worked as a remote content writer. The money was not enough again. And so did I decided. I am going back to prison: I started another job, worked for a few months and got bored, so I started another job, and here I am feeling like in prison.
That is how my story was going until now. Either I would have the pleasure of work and very little money or no pleasure at all with a decent amount paid.
I am a writer, I write poetry and novels, I express myself throughout creative writing. Create is my motive, and sitting in an office with some papers around me is a prison to me. Even if it is creating web content, it is still writing. How should a man balance between what the system implies us what to do, and our minds? If you have your left which is more logical hemisphere more active, you will probably be a good fit in the business world. But if you are any kind of artist, you might find it very difficult to feel comfortable in that world.
How does the prison look like? You have tasks to do, but you feel like you want to get out of your skin, leave it on the desk and you, the real you, meaning your being, to escape and go create something. Most of the people are finding it comfortable to be part of the business world. It drives their motivation and ambition and they aim for success that the business world offers. Artists are different. Their thoughts can come now and leave for 2 days. Their inspiration can occur in a specific place. Their creativity is the essence of their existence. If they are not nurturing it, they are going to be dead inside. Their bodies will be still here, but their insight, their being will be dead. They might face depression for example.
So what is the salvation? Balancing is the key to life. Let’s suppose, you should walk the world holding a spoon with 2 drops of oil in it. If you just take care of the drops, you would not see the beauties around you. If you don’t take care of them, you will lose them. Keep an eye on both of them. Life is a struggle. But it is a nice struggle. Use a different world for struggle and change your perspective. Something like a challenge, or striving. Oh, striving sounds good. Strive for balance, and for enjoying the road to the aims you got.
Until next time,
