Yeah, stress is a big factor. When I have time off, I can better recognize how stressful and unenjoyable my job really is. Many people (after time off) look to go back to jobs they enjoy. I fear it.

I have a big problem with social stress. It's not that I fear people, or social situations, but I find that social interaction activates a side of me that I don't like. My favorite job was working as a nighttime custodian at a car factory.

The thing too, is that making financial sacrifices is not as hard as you might think (if you've got the right personality). Right now, I'm living off next to nothing and it seems to have no negative impact on my life. If I do leave jobs, I'm more than happy to give up all the useless expenditures that were never really compensating for my misery. I like the saying, you can never get enough of the things you don't need.

Modern workplaces too, are so incredibly unnatural. Who wants to sit inside a tiny cubicle for 8 hours a day, 2 hours in a car, just for the luxury of going home and sitting on a sofa to binge watch Friends for the weekend. Our workplaces, and work itself, is so unnatural, and the piece of paper they give us to compensate us for the best years of our lives can never suffices.

A simpler society, where you weren't working your entire life to pay off a piece of land, where perhaps your main focus was on finding / growing food and shelter would be more than fulfilling. Sorry, you hit a nerve with me too!
