455 – Words over tea

It would be easier if you didn’t try so hard.

I’m sorry, but I just can’t smile, keep quiet, and play nice when I know mistakes are being made.

I’ve told you many times, it’s only work.

You know I can’t help it.

That’s because you search fulfillment in your work, and that will only break your heart.

What else can I do?

Draw, write, cook, anything you want as long as you do it for yourself and not for some client.

And if I can’t find anything?

Then the friction will just keep getting worse until you burn up.

I’m not sure if I have the time.

That’s just the thing, you don’t… and you have less every year.

So what can I do?

Anything you want, but live a little before it’s too late.
