I was struck to read this quote in an Atlantic article about The Great Resignation:
As I wrote in the spring, quitting is a concept typically associated with losers and loafers. But this level of quitting is really an expression of optimism that says, We can do better.
After 19 months of fear and ongoing bad news, I felt a sense of relief at the thought that this big economic shift we're hearing about could be a good thing for us. From what I've read, "The Great Resignation" may indicate a new way we're reconnecting with ourselves. As someone who tends to be cynical, I will gladly cling onto the idea that maybe all this bad stuff can lead to greater connection.
What do you think? Are we connecting more to ourselves and even to each other amidst all this change? Or is this our attmept at finding a sliver lining to a grey cloud?
