Personality clashes

Let’s say for arguments sake that you do get to use your creativity, but you find that the way you use it or the company you use it for, goes against who you are as a person – it does not necessarily have to be an ethical dilemma, but it does go against your intrinsic nature.

If that is the case, it is time to reassess your priorities, your wants, and your needs, and start moving towards a career and environment that allows you to stay true to who you are as an individual. The only way you can be a part of the flow of happiness and success is if you get to be fully yourself if you do not have to jerkily stop and go like a teenager just learning how to drive.

You are allowed to be yourself in any aspect of life; if you consider the amount of time you spent at work opposed to the amount of time you spent away from it, you will be terrified to see how many minutes and hours you spent going against the essence of your personality – which again leads to work-related stress. Do not sacrifice yourself to become a part of the system that calls for monotony and submission.
