I understand the actual sentiment behind those kinds of posts but after seeing them a million times my brain over-analyzes and attempts to actually answer the question.
Reality is a monster living under your bed. They tell it like it is, but they’re not all bad.
in my opinion work is to be valued very highly, people place so much value in education, but no one really talks about the view of teaching through doing.if you don’t like your job its probably because,
1 you don’t feel like you know what you are doing.
2 you don’t feel proud of what you are doing.
3 you don’t feel respected for what you are doing.
if any of these are true, get a new job.
As for me, over the course of my very short life have become really good at many kinda random skills because someone paid me to do them, i can now do passable drywall, plumbing, landscaping, concrete work, painting, sign shop work, know how to weld, how to do auto body, how to do automotive painting, and light shop fab work. none of these skills are something that i really want to do for a living, but if i needed money, i could always resort to one of these skills, plus i wont get laughed out of fancy cocktail party’s for not knowing how to properly mortar a block wall. and on top of this all i learned how to be a good employee, how to find good bosses, how to deal with bad bosses, and i know what a good work ethic looks like. and i know all this and i am only 18. work is not a horrible thing that takes your life, work is lots of tiny tidbits of knowledge, that make you a bigger ball of knowledge that only keeps growing, and growing till it is the biggest ball of knowledge out there, and people pay that ball of knowledge to stop destroying Tokyo or whatever huge balls of knowledge do in their free time. that and work is the freedom to spend all your hard earned money on stupid shit that you want.
