Four of Swords: Thank you for being tired

Think of the most resilient and together person you know. Now – subject this person to incessant stress, tension, anxiety and worry. While we’re at it – don’t give them a day off. Criticise them constantly. Hey, why not take them for granted, too. Now watch – as they slowly crumble and break. Those conditions will crack even the strongest and most resilient of people.

Workaholism: the truth about success on paper (Ten of Cups)

Society has a way of using career success and money to justify all kinds of nonsense. For ‘career success’ we do all kinds of permissible crimes. We neglect our kids, our health, our sense of well-being… and even ourselves. We do it to succeed. But are we actually successful?
