Do not keep someone who makes you choose between him/her and your career. Just think of the long hours, sleepless nights, nerve-wracking presentations and countless meetings you had in order to build a name for yourself. Wasting all that for someone is not a noble act of love – it’s downright stupidity. It’s like throwing away a part of yourself you have worked so hard to achieve. If a person truly loves you, he/she will understand because he/she knows that your career is somehow tied to your self-worth. Making you choose is an outright disrespect for who you are, what you have achieved and what you can do.
