I hear it daily from friends, loved ones, connections on social media–people struggling as they are being pushed back into a “norm” that is far from normal. After over a year of self-reflection, people are leaving their work in droves, partially because of natural trends, but I believe its also because people are starting to realize that there is a brokenness to the society we have built.
