Being miserable at work

I read a quote by Carlos Castaneda the other day while in Planet Books and it struck me like a sledge-hammer. “We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.” I have known what seems to have been so many miserable people it really isn’t funny. I used to think that I could help them to be happy. All I got was exhausted and they just wanted more of me and my energy. I judged them harshly and eventually avoided them believing they were nothing but a drain. Then I realised I was ignorant.
