Have You Become Inured to Career Pain?

I just read a New York Times article on resilience by Priyanka Mattoo. And I was reminded how tough the last few years in my banking career were for me. I was miserable. But unlike Mattoo’s boss, mine had no idea because I always put on a happy face. My body though, told the true story. I had bizarre daily muscle spasms while walking an hour to work. My body was trying to stop me in my tracks. But I’d take a few deep breaths, try to relax and soldiered on through the pain. I was seeing a chiropractor a few times a week just to stay mobile.
