Sacrificing your life and health for your career is not a flex

Change my mind.

Mate, forsaking every part of your health and life so you can slave away for a corporation is not the flex you think it is. Do I think it's admirable that people can go to those extremes? Yes. Do I think they also need therapy? Also yes.
