Jadyn,


There are philosophical and practical reasons to go to work everyday. From the strictly practical, because you want the paycheck. There are things you want - like to get your own apartment, a car, being able to go to concerts, etc. And, then there are bills - rent, utilities, food, doctors, etc.


But, some people find a sense of self-fulfillment in their jobs. I worked in the state workforce center before retiring. I helped people to find jobs. These people often had lost their self-esteem and self-confidence. They were fired for bogus reasons, and had applied to dozens of jobs without ever being called for an interview. They didn't know how to write resumes. They didn't know how to explain in an interview that they were fired from their last jobs. I gave them hope. I gave them self-confidence. The job did not pay well. But, I know I made a difference in a lot of peoples' lives.


I hope this helps!

Kim

Jadyn -

I think this is an absolute fair question to ask, and often one that is best answered by a particular individual for their own situation.

However, I do think that there are various answers that can be said for majority of those in the workforce. To echo Kim's response, money. Once released from the education system and you have your degree, and possibly you've already realized, there are many many reasons to have financial stability. It is how we take care of ourselves, both in necessity and in reward.

Ultimately, the goal is to be able to find the balance between being able to meet those necessities and finding something you truly love and that brings you joy. And that will be enough to bring you into work every day.
