Hi guys! Just wanted to say this place is amazing, and has given me huge amount of inspiration. My biggest obstacle that I have faced in this journey, is dealing with depression that stems from my day job. I'm only 21 years old, and have worked at 3 different companies as a software engineer. Ive been working professionally for about 2 years now.
I genuinely can't believe how bad it has gotten, but these jobs have sucked the life out of me. I still try to figure out side gigs, and brainstorm ideas every single day. It's safe to say 99% of my time outside of work is thinking about what I can do to escape it.
When I work on my own projects, I feel extremely motivated and useful. I suppose working everyday for a company/project that you could really care less for takes its toll over the long run. In the past, I kept telling myself a new job would solve the problem. Hence the 3 jobs in 2 years. Now I have accepted that I just won't feel content working for a company. Especially considering my current job is full time remote and very fair as far as work goes.
I was hoping to find anyone on here that feels similar. Would love to hear how you take on this feeling. I wish I could be more grateful for what I have, I am truly extremely blessed. But it's just like I can only cover up this feeling so much. Thanks guys, and sincerely wish everyone success.
