On this day 6 months ago, I left my prior firm. I’m still in consulting but no more waking up in the middle of the night in cold sweats, no more conversations with my gf about how my working hours and stress are affecting our relationships, no more interventions hosted by friends who are worried about me, and no more financial issues. I would have quit after bonus payouts even if nothing had been lined up. Luckily I found something. I’m in a pensive mood - life is good 😊
