The Bhagavad Gita is similar to the OP's issues. It deals with the conflicts we all face in life and how to resolve our wants with our duties. It's not a very long read, actually.

Note: Find a translation that works for you. Specifically, the word 'duty' meant something very different than it does today.

I recommend : https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1586380192/ref=as_li_tl?ie...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bhagavad_Gita

EDIT: For a more western take, I'd also recommend the Bible's knowledge books: Ecclesiastics, Proverbs, and Job. Again, a good translation is essential here, but I'm not about to recommend that.
