I’ve noticed this recently. I started the last year of work with a strong ability to shrug off certain levels of stress, but now I find even small things put me on edge. And despite my best efforts (and my successes) I’ve started to doubt myself and my abilities.
Working in an agency certainly tests your patience on a scale I would have been totally ignorant of a year ago. From customers to management it hits you from all angles. Perhaps a week in the sun will help recharge my tolerance batteries. And hopefully my new job will bring on better times.
