Had I known who to reach out to, I wouldn't have been so lonely in my job. Early on, I was warned to be wary of office politics. To trust my boss and only my boss. Who subsequently quit.
Everyone looked so well-adjusted to their circumstances, except me. Why wasn't I happy with the work I did? Is there something inherently wrong with me that I can never be happy with a job? Even if I was doing a good job, there was this nagging feeling inside, "you're in the wrong place, and you know it".
