“People think I'm joking when I say I would rather work part time. No, I'm not lazy. No, I don't think I'm better than everyone else. I have never been more depressed and anxious about life than when I work full time. I miss having time for myself. I miss being able to actually get stuff done, rather than prioritizing things to do during the measly 2 days off per week that I get. I never have time to do what I NEED to do AND what I WANT to do. I constantly have to sacrifice. I'm tired of it.”
