Let’s face it, some jobs just fucking suck.
The gigs I like to call “soul suckers.” The jobs where you constantly endure annoying coworkers, bitchin’ customers, crying kids and long mind-numbing hours.
Jobs that force you to be trapped with your overly talkative co-workers in an office all day. An office that strangely begins to resemble a jail cell the longer you work there.
Let me clear the air here and say, being an introvert does not at all mean you hate people!
Being introverted just means you prefer things to be more laid back and private. You value your peace of mind and cherish the power in silence.
