Career change?

And so it begins… It’s been a quiet year. Change of city to live in… Change of workplace…. No change to the career though. Still, it’s been quiet….

Until today….

Can we talk to you? Please? It’s just that you are easy to talk to… We know you’ll listen… You’ll take us seriously…

And of course I do…

But it raises the question I’ve had for so long – is this really what I want to do anymore?? Yes, I’m good at it. Yes, I connect easily. But… It’s draining. Each day feels like I’ve been hit by a bus. Each moment takes so much of me. Every hour drains another day… Month… Year…. I truly don’t know if I have the energy anymore.

My father is the first to tell me this attitude is selfish. You wanted to change the world. You wanted to have an impact. You have the ability. It’s selfish of you not to stick with it and give it everything you have…

Is it? A part of me agrees…. But another part is just so exhausted…. But then, the new question is…. What will I do instead?
