That's probably because it sounds a lot like you ARE trapped.

It happens unfortunately. You just have to try and make it as small a part of your day as you can and spend the rest of the time on things that interest you or you want to practice / learn about

I feel you, mine has long hours and I'm thinking what did I get myself into. Hang in there

Thank you for the advice
