There are days when I would like to walk out the door and not come back but I don't. I find a way to cope. If I do something wrong I go to the offended person and make it right. If I can make something better a find a way to involve others so that everyone benefits.
Sure I would love to be at home working on my things but that doesn't pay the bills. Then again I've never been all that impressed by material things and I knew from a very early age that this world and this dimension were illusionary. I saw it disappear when I was nine and no drugs were involved.

Not surprising at all. College bound High School Seniors are encouraged to enter college and pursue fields that are highly valued in the marketplace rather than pursuing areas of interest in which they have passion, and can positively contribute to society and the world as a whole. Students are learning to make a living, but not learning how to truly LIVE with passion.

I've watched my adult children cope with today's work, my daughter has a high-end administrative secretarial job that, when I was a the same age, could not only allow for the cost of an apartment, but if desired the continuation of a post-graduate degree - now it's difficult to even get one of those possibilities in place! My son left intellectual properties law - that started at 6 figures in pay - but left him totally dissatisfied, now at risk every year, he is an entrepreneur for a solar company - rewarding in other ways, but not the material gain that staying in the "rat race" of patent law might have been - the lure of intellectual and material opportunities are far and few between even among the most "intellectual" - and certainly far more advantageous to the rich!
