My sister is a person of working. She don't have many hobbies such as shopping, watching the movies, party etc...She say that she feel happy when she's working. How do you think? Can I believe her? I want to care her. But she only want to work and earn. It's difficult to invite her to a crowed party...

It's nice to know that your sister is so passionate about her work. Don't be surprised; some people are really like your sister. It's in fact a very good trait one should have towards work. If continues to be like this, she will surely climb up the ladder of success. With regard to enjoying life, I'm sure she has her own set of interest. Some people don't like to go out during their free time. They can either enjoy reading a book, writing a good story or even sleeping.

Does she seem happy? Don't think about what would make you or anyone else happy. Just think if she appears to be happy. If she does, then, I would believe her. And if she's not the partying type, there's an easy solution. Don't invite her to a crowded party.

some people really do not like large noisy crowds. like me~ i enjoy a nice comfortable chat with friends than going to bars and drink all night. but i don't think it's good for your sister to just keep working and not have a break. though it might be true that she's having fun while working, she is limiting herself to only 'that' kind of fun. there are many things to discover and enjoy while we are alive. she must not deprive herself of that. i'm glad your helping her get out of her comfort zone.^_^ just be more thorough about the activities you invite her to. she might be a little introverted. choose well and you might just get her to join you. maybe try something that allows her to mingle with people that she is already acquainted with, and in small groups at first.

Yes, there are just some people who love to work, and that is not a bad thing. Just continue trying to suggest other fun activities to her. One day, you might just come up with an idea that she would like. Like maybe, invite her to a book reading club if there is one in your place.

yeah i think i can believe her...she's one of the very few lucky ones to find a job that is so satisfying that it doesn't feel like you're working when you are.... as the saying goes, "find a job that you love, and you'll never have to work for a day"... anyway good for her. i hope i can find a job that i will love for all eternity too!! well some people are just not into parties so you know, it's hard to invite them to one....
