I resonate so much with what you wrote. I quit one of my jobs after 3 weeks of working. It was an admin job and I was expected to do multiple work as well. The pay was good but I could feel my inside was dying. So I walked away. Nothing in this world is really worth sacrificing yourself for (unless of course you have no choice then work and endure for a bit before you quit) but you’re absolutely right, we’re lucky we have support to do what we are passionate about.

Thank you for sharing your story! I think it’ll be very helpful for others who are a bit confused :)
