178. The workoholic

Is he to be pitied, or is he to be envied and admired?
Maybe both, or neither, since he is the victim of his happiness,
he is productive and enjoys his work but has got stuck in it,
like in a vicious circle but of happiness and glory,
which he can't get out of.
Oftentimes you see most doubtful consequences of this queer anomaly,
like difficulties with relationships, divorce and misery,
which usually just spurs him on to even harder efforts,
and thus is his most precarious condition only made the worse.
The problem is that there is no one who can help him;
only he himself can liberate him from his prison
of his work, his paradise and bliss, his sado-masochistic
self-destructive torture and his most unnatural and perfect hell,
which undeniably and more often than not
will end up with producing end results of most amazing quality
that will remain and prove to outlast vanity.
