Struggling with work
Since the beginning of modern talking therapies over 120 years ago, work has been associated as one of the most important aspects of having a meaningful life next to love. To live and to work were considered to be the key ingredients of a successful life.
As a society we are often concerned with what we do, how we live and how we work. For some it is about how we choose not to or feeling unable to. In recent times, work-related stress has caused many people to feel overwhelmed and unable to cope.
It is very important to recognise that the word work and what it means to and for people can play a central role in how we regard ourselves and others and how others regard us.
