Thank you for sharing your story. It’s inspired. You did the right thing. There was/is something wrong in your life that you can’t quite put your finger on. Am I right? This is more than a story about millennials. I’ve had similar experiences and made similar decisions, too. I was a former neurosurgeon... and I quit for the same reason you did, though, I am generation-X. “was a former” is intentional. That’s how long ago it was. LOL.
Let me ask you a question. If McDonald’s paid you a six figure income for flipping burgers (non-manegment), would you be happy there for the rest of your life? And, why not?
