I can very much relate to your description of a pointless job. My last workplace felt like that for me and I could get nearly all my work done in only a couple hours.
After losing that job and starting my own freelance-style career I am much more mentally healthy, and I’m realizing my potential that I was squandering before.
Danny Forest that’s a great point that I agree with! I’m going to explore more of this idea myself because I’ve seen the same. Even with writing as well, I didn’t realize I was good at it until I tried it out. Might be another important step to include here!
I love this. I know people who treat their vacation just like you described, only to be exhausted the entire time. It makes me wonder if they get to really see or know anything of the actual people of the country they are in rather than the tourist sights.
