I really resonated with this piece. I empathize with the idea that working in the corporate world often means betraying your own moral standards and beliefs purely for survival. I hate the system, and yet I have no other alternative. On some level, working entails denying this version of yourself, the version of yourself that has values, the version of yourself that is human. It necessitates that we create two versions of our identity that are incompatible with one another.

yes! corporate culture can feel like such a betrayal of the self. its soooo exhausting. It seems like more and more people are coming to terms with this, and I know there's also organizing around shorter work weeks + more worker protections. I'm so desperate for a world with those things!

thanks for reading, clara! <3
