Re: Love vs Career Love

Liss of Daydream Lily blog recently put up a post entitled Love vs Career Love. There were lots of wonderful comments, but here are my favourite three:

Toni Brockliss
Love. You can love your career, but it doesn't love you back.

Miss English Rose
In work you are generally quite often replacable, but if someone loves you and wants you for the rest of their life then you are irreplacable. Who is going to make you cups of tea and snuggle with you on the sofa when your retired and have no one around?

Love. Jobs and careers come and go. I want someone to sit and hold hands with when I'm old. A career can't hold my hand, or hug me, or listen to my ramblings. No job is worth giving up love.
