      That is a huge point about how people have so many choices for their careers and life-paths. Not knowing if one made the best choice can cause so much frustration and confusion.

It puts a recent situation in a different light and helps me make some sense of it all by explaining the rationale behind some of the causes of workplace stress. Thank you! I'd be interested in any further reading you could recommend on the subject.
