Prickly

What did you want to do when you were a child? Why?

I was struggling to find my own way for a long time. I wanted to be an environmentalist because I thought that is an occupation of the future. I also wanted to become a policeman because I liked the justice principal and watching detective stories.

 

What do you do for a living?

I am a personal assistant.

 

What do you like about your job?

Nothing any more. I think I am burnt out.

 

What you don’t like in your current profession/job?

Basically everything. But the most of all is a feeling of being useless and a lack of genuine appreciation.

What help do you need to live happier?

No one can make anyone happy. But I think to have a supportive environment is important. Also I’d love to ensure that my job makes people happy and to feel a sense of purpose in doing so. I think I am already happy. I have a daughter and a cat, they are more than a half of my happiness😊
