If you only focus on the aspects that you don’t like, you will never love what you do. Try to look at things on the bright side. What are you getting out of it? What value are you creating? What are you doing that benefits the world around you? Does your work make life easier for someone?
What you are doing adds value to your life and to the lives of others. Keep that in mind when you think about what you are doing.
