Since yesterday, one of the articles of the French newspaper "Les Echos" runs in a loop in my mind. He quotes one of your assertions: "a burnout is not the price to pay for success". That's the sentence I was waiting for. I was born to parents who had a difficult childhood. My mother has been deeply affected. Her moral sufferings were not verbal, but she carried within her a form of atonement, as a guilt for the sorrow she had suffered as a child. From this education is born a belief that happiness is the result of suffering, that one has nothing for nothing, that happiness is won. Everything was a little confused in my mind. Hoping to prove to her that she was wrong, I finally met some predators who activated my secret levers and locked me in a role. At the same time, I became passionate about the law, about justice. Lulled by deep aspirations and faith in a better world through my work (youth is often egocentric), I worked hard and earned brilliant degrees in law. I wanted to take my place, climb the steps of society. I still want it. From junior lawyer, I moved to senior lawyer and then legal manager for a team of 6 people. I have held several positions, in the bank, at the ministry, in a social security organization and now in an insurance company. I constantly pushed the limits. Learn more, listen to the most experienced, try new experiences. Work tirelessly. I am 38 years old, I hold good positions. The weekend is approaching, and I read and re-read your sentence. I am not a victim, I want to fight and succeed. But not at any price. Because it must also be possible and everyone wins.
