Try to care less. Practice ambivalence. Learn to let go of wanting it. Treat your career as a bad boyfriend.
Here’s the thing. Your career won’t take care of you. It won’t call you back or introduce you to its parents. Your career will openly flirt with other people while you are around. It will forget your birthday and wreck your car. Your career will blow you off if you call it too much. It’s never going to leave its wife. Your career is fucking other people and everyone knows it but you.
Your career will never marry you. – Yes Please by Amy Poehler
