Yes the pariah everyone thinks of and dreads at some point in life or another. It could be physical, it could be emotional it could be spiritual; whatever the work is, at some point even trust fund babies have to get it into gear. The main thing to remember here is that without work there is no purpose. And without purpose there is depression; this is a guarantee on a long enough timeline.
With depression there is escapism. With escapism, there is drugs/drinking/tv watching video game playing or 1000 other time-sucking diversions taking place. A person who is truly in touch with their purpose cannot truly be all that sad. Why is this? because with enough patience, everyone has a shot at making their purpose into reality. It may not be fun getting there, it may not be fun doing it, but you can make it.
Remember you are ultimately playing a game with yourself, nobody else. Fun is never guaranteed in life. In fact, some of the most purpose-driven activities are not really fun. They are kind of anti-fun actually. They make fun seem like it’s never coming back… They force your mind into the uncomfortable spaces where fun has never and will never exist. But just because it’s not fun doesn’t mean it’s not rewarding.
Sometimes no fun is ok! Because no matter what hard work is better than depression, hard work is better than pain and hard work is better than not knowing why you are alive. A person who is useful is great. A person who has no use is questionable. What are you doing for yourself? What are you doing for your life? If you aren’t working, then you are probably depressed. Find something constructive to do and you will have a better life to be sure….
