continuation

People always think that family comes first and in so many proverbs also it is said that job and office will not be there for you, its only family who will be there in times of crisis.

But I disagree a little here, I think there wouldnt be any family, if one doesnt have a job...and neglecting one's profession, which gives him all that bread, butter and jam and respect, will not get a happy family.

Its the balance which matters, and if family comes first, then would you like if..

someone close to you is sick and all doctors are celebrating festival...

Will you be safe if Army people start being with their family all the time?

can you travel peacefully if all the traffic policeman want to be with their family on festivals....it can go on...

All essential services need commitment, and all these people do their jobs on all days irrespective of festivals or anything..do they love their family any  less than others? ..NO..only difference is that they are committed individuals with high regard for their professions..the way it should be...
One must choose the profession with lot of consideration and then be honest with it...And I respect those who do it...everybody cant be an idealist, but we can aspire to be atleast, the way we aspire for material things.

as you said there has to be a balance between both....and at times one has to set his/her priority as per the need...!!

SG said...

As you said, there should be a balance between family and profession. We cannot neglect family in the name of dedication to our profession.

Irfanuddin :
SG;
Harman:.balance is the key,but there will be many times where one has to give priority to one.and that should be a right choice..messing up of relationships happens due to manyreasons..I feel one of them is not having proper values...resenting a spouse for his/her commitment and sincerity to his/her profession is very immaturish and childish..

Muthu: Thanks Muthu:)

Rahul Aggarwal: Thanks!!

An interesting insight. Your blog makes for an interesting read each time. Blessings to you and your family.

Arti said...

A very Interesting point of view there. Proper time and commitment needs to be given to each at appropriate times to keep things healthy on all ends. I suppose a right mindset is essential to balance it out.

Renu: While at work give your 100% and in the same way, while at home give 100%. There are many workoholics who take work home. For them their career comes first and then their family. We work since we need to eat but one cannot subsist on food alone.

So as you said, it needs a balance. One cannot rule over the other. But the professions mentioned by you: doctor, policeman, soldier is different from the rest. Before a youngster takes up these professions, they should think twice since family will have to come second.

Renu, you are talking here about a vocation, which professions like medicine, teaching and army were -- once upon a time. Today they are all, alas, just jobs and so are treated as such. Arguments to the effect of,'Aren't they humans? Don't they have a life?' are thrown at you if you dare to point out that they should have more dedication to their work. Things have gone far too downhill in such things.

Shalom said...

As you said, balancing is everything. You should know when to put work first, and when to put family first.

Renu said...

Zephyr:looks like we are reaching the nadir in everything:(.

Shalom: I am so happy to see you here:)
