Choosing Between Career And Love

-By Deshna Mohanty

When it comes to making a choice between love and career, it has to be a difficult decision. There are posts and other romantics that would advise you on always going the 'romance and love' way. But what if, on the other hand, you have career-related opportunities? While true love is hard to find and pretty rare, a great career can give you unimagined and unmatchable luxuries of life that most can only dream of. Falling in love is as easy as it is difficult to stay in love thereon. It is a fact that one's personal and professional life are independent of each other and not mutually exclusive. If what you call "love" comes in the way of your path to progressing in your career, then, it isn't loved. That is the time you should let go. If in case, you choose love over career, then you might be burdened with two things for a lifetime. First being, the fact that would you ever be able to forgive yourself for giving up 'that' opportunity? The second one is the bitterness in your relationship with your partner. If your relationship turns sour, the frustration of giving up your career for the sake of love might literally haunt you. Marilyn Monroe said, "A career is wonderful but you can't curl up with it at night." Though a hard decision that it is, each one of us is entitled to have not one, both - love and career. How we choose to have both lies in our hands. If love is true and undying, then don't you think that there is no need to even make a decision between love and career in the first place? Love has no specific definition. But a generalized definition of love definitely states that it means, to grow with one another, and also be the reason for that growth of one another.
