Joined a company about 6 months ago. We just moved offices and the new office reminds me of every 90’s office movie. It’s making me miserable to spend time in this space. Is my misery valid?
Your misery is definitely valid. You spend a good portion of your time there and if it isn’t something you like then that would be hard to be around!
I sometimes have thoughts about quitting because of this. I feel like I’m supposed to just “be an adult” and suck it up that I don’t work in some hip millennial-ey office. It’s just a depressing place to be though.
Are you able to personalize your space? Adding pops of color or artwork can go a long way to making the space energize you.
