Less pay,stress free job or More Pay,Slight stress job?
Asking this because My SO and me fit in these 2 respectively,me the latter. When we talked about our daily job she always says good things but for me i barely have any good things to share.
Im making about $300 more than her and have received bonus. When i rant about work it seems she mentions that i get paid more so the stress is logical n thats what’s important .
Also she mentions i should go for jobs that pay way more despite the stress so can save up. BUT thing is, im not a money minded person.
I rather do jobs that pay lesser but i have more time. But if i do so then i have to cut on spending and savings for future plans. Anyone else like this?
- 300 more not really worth it if u bring the stress home.
- It’s not just about whether a job has more stress but also whether a person can cope effectively with that stress.
Its possible that your wife is better at handling the stress associated with her job while, looking at the way you’re describing your reaction, you’re not able to manage the stress.
- It’s easy to say when they are not the ones facing the stress
You are already complaining about the stress and her advice is to look for more stress??
- More pay = more responsibilities = more stress
She’s not wrong to say more pay more chance to save especially when u r young. Earning potential more when one is young then save to retire
But if she needs to you earn more to support her then ask yourself if u r willing. Very simple
