Just left a senior position in a YC startup for a middle position in my local company.

I believe that this downgrade will relieve some of my stress and give me more free time to heal my depression.

After fixing my uncontrollable consumption issues I can finally stop being a wagecuck. I don’t care much about my salary anymore while focusing on health and happiness. I saved up a lot of money so I finally can afford not to live paycheck to paycheck.

I’m slowly shifting towards living off my side projects only.

    Been there done that. My advice is build a social network if you are planning to live off your own projects because it gets lonely... Working from home will sooner or later suck because your brain will be in workmode 24/7. Also in my case I couldnt get a mortgage even though I had stable income for the past year. Fucking banks want my company to be 2 or 3 years old. So even though I saved up for the deposit, I still have to work in a more established company for at least 6 months to be able to get a mortgage...
