Is it worth it? I'm an experienced hire that can't get my head around the firm the way the home grown folks do. How do you all deal with that?

Anyone else having WFH fatigue? I had been traveling weekly for business the last 20+ years, but the last 3 months at home has been personally challenging. I love my wife and 3 boys — but I need some “alone time” which I used to have when traveling. Sometimes I get in my car and go for a drive but it’s not enough. Seems like this WFH is the new working model for the future. Anyone else feel this way?

I’m unhappy in consulting, but not sure if it’s really about the profession/lifestyle or no longer wanting to work more generally? Having trouble identifying any alternative I’d prefer, regardless of income. Is this a normal mid-life phase?

Am I the only one having issues determining truth from facts nowadays? I feel like I'm in a perpetual episode of the X-files and expecting Mulder and Scully to knock on my front door any moment.
