Having a demanding career is probably one of the most difficult things that you will ever have to deal with. The truth is, most people that have careers that are exceptionally demanding think of themselves as being married to that particular line of work, often because they spend the overwhelming majority of their time working as opposed to doing anything else. As a result, it doesn’t usually leave a lot of time for personal relationships or anything else. This can make it challenging when you have a relationship and a demanding career and you don’t want to give up one or the other.
The real question that you have to answer involves learning how to strike a balance between work and your relationship. A lot of this will depend on your individual personality as well as the personality of the other person in the relationship. One great example is Jackie Soffer http://miami.curbed.com/2015/9/4/9924124/craig-robins-jackie-soffer-wedding-miami-design-district-aventura-mall, who is the co-CEO of Turnberry Associates and big time real estate developer, Craig Robins, who got married last year. Both Jackie and Craig hold demanding jobs in the real estate industry and share a passion for art. Not only are they compatible outside of the office, they are also able to have a successful and positive working relationship.
If the two of you are both committed to a career, it makes it easier for both individuals to understand what the other is going through. It is more difficult when only one person in the relationship has a career that takes a lot of their time and the other individual is left to wonder why they are always the one going to the personal functions alone or dealing with family obligations on their own.
Perhaps the most important thing you can do to create balance in your relationship is to keep the lines of communication open. No matter how busy you are, it is important that you make a certain amount of time available to spend with your significant other on a daily basis. Whether that means you get together early in the morning, late at night or somewhere in between, it is imperative that you make the effort to do so. Furthermore, it is easier to strike a balance in your relationship when you are able to communicate freely. If both sides are able to say what they are thinking and feeling without fear of how the other will react, it makes it easier for any problems that do arise to be discussed before the problem grows even more.
Without a doubt, both careers in relationships take a tremendous amount of work. Even then, everything doesn’t always go as planned. In order to make both things work simultaneously http://money.usnews.com/money/blogs/outside-voices-careers/2012/10/11/10-ways-to-balance-your-career-with-your-love-life, you have to be totally committed and put everything you have into making sure that you are able to handle both situations without compromising one or the other. It is possible to do so and people do it every day. It really comes down to how badly you want to do it and the overall health of your relationship to begin with.
