Lisa! You are not alone. I know social media works for some people but if it doesn't align with you then that's ok. I took a 3 month break from all social and saw my creativity grow and my email list too :) Then realized I it's because I LOVE writing my weekly email and creating new podcast episodes. When you stick to the mediums that actually bring you joy and momentum then that's more valuable than being on spaces people you feel trapped into being on. I also read Deep Work by Cal Newport and that gave me the strength to leave social. I also wrote about it if you want the TLDR. Anywho do what aligns with you!

Two conflicting thoughts came into mind when reading this. 1. I wonder if these people complaining about needing to get back into the office for their emotional and physical wellbeing are people who would support universal healthcare or other initiatives that help other people? If not, then I have no sympathy. It's funny how someone can complain about needing support and help yet refuse to offer it to others.

2. However, if these people complaining DO support and vote for helping others then I would want to take their wellbeing into consideration and not mock them for having emotional needs.

Obviously one can never know. Really enjoyed this article and am pro-WFH. I hope it doesn't disappear.
