Honestly just pay your loans off, look into FIRE, make smart money decisions and keep your eyes open for an exit. Keep doing an awesome job obviously but don’t think you’re going to miraculously start loving it.

I had this problem until I started doing faster paced work (and started seeing a therapist to deal with my ADHD).
