I’m now into nine months of self-employment.
Nine months might not seem particularly significant for most people, but to me it is. For some reason the nine month mark is always when I reach the most stressful point of a job. I’ve only been able to push through it once or twice when the environment was particularly great; the other times I’ve been (often subconsciously) annoyed/annoying. It’s taken me a decade to consciously realise and accept it, but I’m just not the employee type. And that’s okay.
