Some people think that there is nothing important than work and career. They believe, if you are a successful person, you have already achieved the main thing in life. But others are sure, it is a wrong opinion.
As for me, I agree with the second group of people. Humans have one life and if they spend it only for their work, then they can miss many interesting things, meaningful moments and small pleasures.
Firstly, I suggest that a family is more important than work. A person recieves love, understanding, support, care from family members. I suppose nobody can live without these feelings. Secondly, if a person immerses herself or himself in a work, usually she or he does not have time for rest. They have the aim to earn as much money as possible. Therefore, their health deteriorates because people cannot act like a machines and everyone needs to relax. There are different ways to do it, for example, taking up new hobby, spend time with family, join sport club, painting, learning languages, cooking, dancing, reading books, camping, travelling.
At the same time, there are people who believe that work is the most important thing in life. They are sure, if you have big salary, you are eminent in the society. For these people the priority is career and work. The group of people suggest: a person who has a lot of money can easily live without family circle.
I do not agree with the opposing opinion for some reasons. Firstly, because you may lose your work. Some people dedicate life to beloved work and when employee fires him or her, it is a problem for the person to manage it. He or she is trying to find support from the family ambiance. And sometimes only immediate relatives and close friends can help to find a right decision. Secondly, if you want to be eminent in the society, it is not enough to earn a lot of money. You need to be a responsible, persistent, strict person.
In conclusion, I would like to say that we should take care of things we have. However work never can be compared with love, friendship and other priceless things.
