This is such a valuable observation. Each job I've held, I've remained at longer than I should have for the people. Ultimately, I've realized that people are wonderful, but the work *must* be somehow intrinsically satisfying for me to justify remaining in the position. As a people person (and truthfully, a people pleaser), this is something I expect to grapple with for the rest of my life. Thank you for noting it so succinctly!

The highest purpose of words is that they be used to connect one another.
