Is Anyone Having a Good Time?
I never write anything down and I barely use social media, but today I felt the need to post on this site, because I have a good feeling people may relate.
I've been at this IB gig since the summer of 2017, and have been doing WFH since March 2020. Not gonna lie, I have loved every second of it - until recently.
It's getting more and more difficult to wake up and feel motivated to do my job.
Why? The people are toxic, passive agressive, out-of-touch, and just plain rude. I'd say I have developed a pretty thick skin, but everyone has a limit and there's a line.
There's no respect for people's time and personal life. I've been feeling extremely jaded and dissatisfied with life. I could say I'm doing well professionally and financially... but I think I may have missed the class on how to achieve happinness.
It's 3am on a Thursday and you ask yourself: "What the hell am I doing?". At least when we were at the office you could shoot the sh1t with the other analysts / some associates. You can't even do that anymore.
COVID-19 has made me realized a couple of things: 1) Family is vital, I need to spend more time with them, 2) I need to make more friends in NYC, haven't made any new ones (besides work) after ~3 yrs, 3) I need to normalize preserving / boosting my mental health, that will help me clear my mind and find my true passion in life.
So my question is: is anyone having a good time? Because I'm not, but I'll give it another shot.
P.S. Sorry for the long post, I needed to vent.
