Maybe you’re irritated with boring low-level work. Maybe you feel under appreciated and disengaged. No one says ‘thank you’ and you feel taken for granted. You watch people around you getting the opportunities you want, and you’re consistently overlooked and you don’t know why.
You ask yourself: Is it because I’m a woman? Is it because I don’t hang out with them? Do none of the leaders like me?
So you start faking it until you feel like an imposter – and eventually throw in the towel, because faking it gets old real quick.
You just want to do work that keeps you inspired and interested. You want work that allows you to have really cool experiences by yourself or with family and friends, while having the chance to make enough money to retire. You just want to survive.
