Take it off your chest...
Read Rules

When I was in my early 20's and at university I remember that me and my friends had a very enthusiastic outlook towards the future and on life. We had plans and dreams and a this "we can do everything" mentality. Now, I'm a few years older and I work full-time. I love my work, but I find it challenging to maintain that mentality. I love my work and I like working in general, but the people I work with are so distant. It's almost like they are dead on the inside. I can understand that some people just work to get paid and that their lives are lived outside the office, but it feels like such a waste to me to be spending 8-10 hours a day at something and at least not try to get something positive out of it. So, as someone who is fairly new at this "being and adult"-thing, is this how it is? Do everyone start out fresh and energetic and end up sad and ground down? I don't like the prospects if that's the case.
