Lately, I feel I'm already at the edge and still it wasn't good enough. I have lots and lots of work and lots and lots of hobbies I wish I didn't have to eat and sleep and finish all these things. I play hard and I work hard and I'm beginning to wear out. I am pushed to the end of my limit, I'm tired but I know that if I stop, the work would just pile up. I don't have a choice but to continue work. What do you guys usually do when you experience this?

I think you might want to prioritize. You could cut back on your hovbbies and do what you have to do first. If you keep pushing yourself you could make yourself sick then you will be forced to take time off from everyting. You don't want that to happen...You need balance in taking care of yourself and what you need to accomplish. Wishing you all the best

I agree with you on balance. The problem with balance is we can sometimes overlook it. We always have to watch out whether or not we're going towards the other end or the other. Balance is at the middle of both sides and that's hard to maintain.

Take a small break. It sounds like you need a vacation. Work will always be around and sometimes it needs to take a back seat.

There are some companies who force their employees to take time off. I think that is a good idea as everyone needs variety and a break and rest.

At my old job they would make you go home if had just a little sniffle. It wasn't so you'd get better as much as they didn't want to catch whatever you had, lol.

Well unfortunately I don't get those kinds of vacation here because I am the employer's daughter. They know I won't fight them with labor codes and stuff, not that they're abusing me but I think what they meant was that like them I should watch over the company too since I'm the next in line to manage the company. I am an only child and my parents are growing older and older each day. My uncle owns half of the company too but fortunately for him he has 4 children to try out and see who's deserving among the four. As for my mom and dad, they only got me and I have to see to it that I am deserving. The pressure is on. I know the youngest child of my uncle feels the same pressure too since she's the last one to prove to be deserving. The older 3 didn't seem to have an interest in the company.

Stop immediately before you are push over the edge, you have to decide it yourself if you are concerned about your own well being. No one can force you to do anything as no one know how bad the situation is except yourself.

I personally try to keep balanced. I try to do as much as I can today so that when tomorrow comes I can rest. I find that I need a lot of rest. Search within you for the strength that we all have my friend.
