First time that income has gone down instead of up.
Even if it wasn’t a lot, my income has always gone up since I’ve been working.
I was expecting this and shouldn’t be bothered by it.
In this economy and in this city, I’m glad that I have a job that pays the bills, I can buy food, and I can sleep with a roof over my head.
But there is still a part of me that feels like I’ve failed somehow…
