One of my friends, a writer with a lot of gifts, who has received some good recognition — she has published well over 20 books and received awards — said she was quitting the other day. She said she had re-entered the corporate world, and needed to provide for her ailing mother and her own future/retirement. She said she was enjoying corporate life. A paycheck does not suck.
Every time I see one of these things shared so much on Medium: there’s really very little here — why is this post promoted so much? I wonder. Why don’t I just go fucking work at Starbucks or the supermarket. Why don’t I just move to the Slabs? Why don’t I just quit?
Thanks for the connection.
