There will always be shit unfortunately, but it’s amazing to me how much a change of scene can affect how it affects me. I’m in a similar situation - I’m way busier and have way more responsibility than at my last place but enjoying the people and the work so much more. I didn’t realize how toxic my previous situation was until I had hindsight perspective.
