To work for happiness, not for status
I took a leave of absence from work due to depression in March this year and returned to work for the first time in eight months three days ago.
I used to be an office worker with a position, but I started as a manufacturing worker when I returned to work.
I can also do some programming, so I thought about working as a programmer, but I didn’t think I could do any mental hard work while still suffering from depression, so I chose to work in manufacturing.
I used to work while thinking about my career, but now I feel like I’m working for the sake of eating and living, and that feeling is somehow refreshing.
To be honest, I feel free now that I have given up my career.
By earning enough money to live on and finding my own purpose in life separately, I have more options.
“To live richly while enjoying today”
This is my goal from now on.
