      Roxane Gay writes in a way that resonates with me and makes me think more deeply.

      Having a job should not be this hard. It should not make people this unhappy. A terrible job, a truly terrible job, is not something we should be grateful for. This subject is a conversation I’ve had with multiple people throughout the past year.

      I love the ending of this piece, which is something I think about all the time: “how we can create workplace cultures that value the workers as much as the work” — not a single day of work passed where I don’t think about this.
