Have you chosen a career over love or do you love your career?

Tiffany Sun hooked me in immediately when she writes "I can't hold onto a long term relationship."  Okay, was the title of her blog post "How Love F*cked my Career".

She writes an emotional episode of her life moving to China where she chose love and comes to regret her decision.  She felt lost and disconnected.   However, there is always hope and she recounts her transition.

Tiffany was faced with a plausible situation for many of us where you must make tough decisions when it comes to having a relationship.  Are most of us willing to put our career goals on hold while we watch our partner further invest in their own career.

Life experiences can change our views on life and the person that we are today is not always the person that we will be tomorrow.  The same goes with your career aspirations.  I had always thought that I wanted to fast track to the CxO level however having a family and keeping that 50-50 balance in life is my priority. 

 I guess the article from Tiffany can be summarized into the simple idea of:

If you're not happy then what are you?

If there are romantics out there weighing their personal and career life in the balance then just remember that it is you who needs to get up out of bed each day so make a decision that you can accept.
