I hate people who glorify pain and suffering and "hard work" at the expense of your own health, free time and happiness. Suffering doesn't make you deep, it's not meaningful, and most importantly it's not necessary. These people brag about working 13 hours a day just so that other people can see how much they can endure. From an outside perspective, they look stupid. If you can find shortcuts, why not try them?
The people who win at life are the ones who know how to enjoy it, and you just know that the martyrs are seething with jealousy. This is where their criticism comes from (mainly about freelancers but also some neets), that they are shallow, that they have it easy, or "why do they make money sitting on their ass while I put in hard work"? Well, tough luck I guess? You're not superior for having a shitty life.

I almost agree with you, but hard work and suffering in pursuit of your own goals (and not a bosses) is good. Otherwise all you'll ever know is sitting at home watching anime and being kinda comfy.

True, but that's why I mentioned freelancers

I'm still waiting for humanity to reach a post-work society. Any day now…

I usually assume you work 13h with shortcuts , smart AND hard.
Also i kinda with i had their willpower so i can do stuff i like and not burn out. A subconcious part of me kinda wants to be like that but it might be because i have the opposite problem of having piss poor willpower/motivation even towards doing stuff i like (burning on hobbies a lot) rather than a desire to work myself to death , could also be soceital glorification of this lifestyle influencing me a bit (you are not immune to propagnda) .
I do recognise its unhealthy tho.

And what's wrong with that? That's hardly an argument in favour of suffering.

"Kinda" is the key word. You will never discover the real joys of living. It's an existence you could take or leave.

I wholeheartedly agree. This is especially present in the field I was thinking about getting into - Computer Science.
It seems everyone there tries to become ultra-productive little code monkeys, spending most of their time doing pointless boring shit.
Even though, I'm somewhat interested in the field itself, this sort of behavior turns me off from it really hard.
