"It took me a while to admit to myself how miserable I was in this environment. A cultural value that was deeply engrained in me was that 'you don't quit something you have started' though. And one morning, the sun was shining through the windows, I could see the bright blue summer sky from inside the butchery, I threw up my hands in the air, looked at my colleagues that were at their cutting stations and started running out the door shouting ' I am leaving, and you can all go to hell!' I ran faster and faster, it felt like I was running for my life, my own life."
