There are things about my job that I don't like and I am woefully underpaid (honestly). However I work in a field where you have the opportunity to know clients really well. Those clients die - often. This year has been particularly bad. I am on holiday at the moment and my colleague absolutely rightly sent me an e-mail today telling me of the death of a client. She thought I might want to go to the funeral. I can't because we are away but she was right to tell me.
Thing is - I sit here thinking do I actually want a job where you get e-mails on holiday to say someone has died - or do I really want a job, any job where you don't get that? Is it a benefit or a curse? Can I actually walk away? Or can I actually keep doing it?
