Like I didn't join out of a want to be "rich"/get more money than one would ever need. It was fun. But it's not fun anymore. It's exhausting. It's more than a job. It's a 'personality' you have to align with. It's not okay to talk about things outside of tech or even highlight the explicit downsides of this space - it is taboo. And the day I can just step away without endangering myself will be a very beautiful day.
