No Joy Anymore

I’m in a dark place right now. The job has deteriorated to the point of no return, there’s simply no way my passion or motivation will ever return. I’ve been reduced to simply being a cog in the machine.

I fought as hard as I could, but at my age, resigning and looking for another job is not a tempting prospect. My goal is to become what I’d always tried to avoid, and that’s someone who just goes through the motions while just waiting to retire.

  1. I totally get what you mean, because as a writer who’s in between jobs with all my freelance opportunities dashed from COVID, I’m finding it hard not to return to being a part of the machine, something that I’m still fighting, but is inevitable. Wishing you all the best though!
