I think being furloughed due to the pandemic, and then returning to full-time, has made me realize how bad my work situation is at destroying the quality of my life. It’s amazing how over time you just acclimate to things and you don’t realize all the ways that a job can take away from you. I’ve been in worse situations, but that’s a pretty low bar to use for comparison. I don’t know if this knowledge will motivate me to make a change sooner, but it’s still good to gain this awareness and to be more mindful should better opportunities present themselves.
