Inside the Episode

We’re back for another episode in our series about healing our emotional relationships with the parts of life we are trying to change. And this week, we are talking about that place we spend around 90,000 hours of our lives at—work. This episode might hit home for many of our listeners as work can often be where we tend to find our identity, success, or status. We hope that this conversation will help you kickstart a new, healthier relationship with your work!

Key Takeaways

  • There are two types of people when it comes to working: work evaders and workaholics.
  • Work Evaders say, “I’ll be happy when I don’t have to work anymore.”
  • Workaholics say, “I’ll be happy once I am successful.” This group looks to their success to provide their confidence and happiness.
  • “When I was successful or met a goal, I felt like I was worthy. And so I thought I could earn belonging through my work.”
  • The first step to making a change is to realize what your unhealthy relationship with work costs.
  • Address the origins of your emotions and how your family viewed and practiced work.
  • When you discover your motivation for work, you can heal your relationship with it, so it gives you joy but doesn’t overtake your identity.
  • There is joy in work AND joy in rest. We need to have a healthy balance between the two.
