Everyone in some form or shape is trying to find contentment, adequacy and happiness in some form or shape. There are many people who seek these in their work and are turning into workaholics, and they feel they don't have any meaning or purpose in their lives unless they're working. On the other hand, according to some, happiness is often thought of as a weekend-only phenomenon; they spend their weekdays counting down the hours until the weekend arrives so as to indulge in activities to forget about their daily grind.
However, this discrepancy between the weekdays and the weekends identity creates a lot of suffering for individuals. Instead of this dichotomy, true happiness is found in the integration of the weekdays with the weekends. It is the integration of the different identities that one carries throughout the week that leads to a fulfilling and contented life.
Workaholics may find that taking time on the weekends to engage in activities that bring them joy and relaxation can help them feel refreshed and ready to tackle the upcoming week. Those who look forward to the weekends as a time to escape their daily lives may find that integrating their work identities with their weekend identities will lead to a more balanced and harmonious life.

It's important to remember that true happiness cannot be found in just one aspect of our lives. Rather, it is a combination of different elements, including our work, relationships, hobbies, and personal growth. By integrating our different identities and finding a balance between our weekdays and weekends, we can lead a life filled with purpose, meaning, happiness, and contentment.
True happiness is not just found on the weekend or during the weekdays, but in the integration of both. By finding a balance between our work and leisure time, or by finding our purpose which includes the work and the fun under the umbrella of service, we can lead a fulfilling and contented life that brings joy and happiness to every aspect of our lives and to those around us.
