Q5: How do I balance my relationship and work?
Happy Monday Love and Relationship Community Vinglers!! That's for all of you that commented over the weekend. I appreciate all your amazing comments and thoughts. KEEP UP THE AWESOME ANSWERS <3

Today's question is something I also struggle with personally, so any really thoughtful responses will be taken to heart.

Q: I really struggle with keeping a work/relationship balance. I love my job, and mostly I love working. But it's been really hard for my S.O. Who doesn't really love her job and doesn't understand why I spend extra time at work. I want to show her that I appreciate our relationship, but she's consistently saying things like, "You always pick work over me." I just really love my job!! How do I show her I appreciate her without neglecting my dream job?

remember that it's important to take time off of work. save up for a good present or a gift and show her what your work can do. also if she's that important to you you will make some sacrifices for her

Someone who doesn't understand your love of what you do is always going to question it. I won't say you have to pick either or, but it is important to weigh the pros and cons so that you don't lose one for the other.

I'd say take one night of the week that will be set aside just for you S.O.

Sorry for the late response!! I was having an interesting time reading the thought on this one because it seems to be split two ways. I think it's reflective of what's important to each of us. For example, work is really important to me so I would try to get the person to understand that. At the same time, I know a lot of my friends that would say relationships are more important so we should focus on that more. I don't think one is better than the other, it's just how we view the world. though I think in terms of ultimate happiness, a person does NEED to take time for the people that are important :) thanks for your thoughts @AshelyJewell @1FallenAngel @marshalledgar @JimTurpen @MaighdlinS @Heartofgold35 @jordanhamilton @momattheword @VanessaSimmons @ThePervySage @Bobs @jamesyoungs @SeoInHan @AprilGuillemard @MajahnNelson @StetsonCampbell @BrendanFred @humairaa @MichelleHolly
