I got an email this morning from a reader who hates his job–for good reasons. He included this line:
Now I’m in a job that I utterly despise. I dread every day. I know you will probably say I should be grateful, because so many are unemployed. I’m still morbidly depressed, despite trying to paint a happy face on it.
And, so I want to say to him, and to everyone, you can be grateful you have income and still hate your job, and it’s okay.
Yes, gratitude is important. Be thankful for the paycheck for sure!
