Have you ever prayed extremely hard for a professional opportunity, and then when it manifests, you find yourself drained, ultimately questioning if you should even be there? If so, you are not alone—I have found myself in that exact position a couple of times before. Being in that particular situation can evoke various feelings; for me, it was mostly guilt for complaining after working my butt off to secure the position in the first place.
Lets face it: the workplace can develop and sharpen professional skills, but can also create stress. I have often found myself overcome with excitement due to finally working in a particular position I had hoped for, until being faced with high demands and challenging tasks. Don't get me wrong, I pride myself in being able to overcome these daily challenges because it is beneficial to my professional growth, but I slowly began to notice the impact it had on me after I clocked out.
