I was working 70-80 hours a week, at a physically demanding job. It was high stress, but they pay was decent. I was making 90k a year, but most of that is OT. I did it for 6 years, till I just couldn't do it anymore. I started thinking about suicide a lot. Having a family, I knew that would not work anymore. I quit my job, and used about 60k of our savings to just take a break from working. I found a new job, pays more by hour, less by year... because, no OT.... much happier now. What I'm getting at is, money is not worth happiness. It for sure is not worth your life. The grind is Ok for a little bit, but if you are working 80 hours a week, and only sleeping 12 hours a week...... you gon die, one way or another.
