  • Hello Whitney!

    This was a very interesting read! I went through the exact same thing in my previous job: feeling burnt out and working hard but not getting much in return. As much as I am career-oriented, I also value my work-life balance and I was absolutely fed up of always feeling stressed out and undervalued. So, towards the end of 2021, I quit my job. At the start of 2022, I started my current role and now I am so much happier, less stressed out and calmer. I feel as though I’ve got my work-life balance back and I feel valued and respected. What a difference a year makes! Life is so much better for me.

    Life is too short to keep giving your all to a job when you’re not getting what you want or deserve in return. And work isn’t everything: there’s more to life than working yourself into the grave.
