I worked and thrived in a call center for 5 years during my 20’s. Promoted, top performer, etc. Then I found drugs and dropped out of the work force for 8 years.
Fast forward: I got sober and applied and got a job at a great call center making more money than I ever have before.
Got through training with lots of anxiety, now every day it’s fighting dizziness, heart pounding, chest tightening anxiety. This isn’t a hard job. I shouldn’t mind getting yelled at and figuring out bills, up selling. This is what I do and what I’m good at.
Maybe I just can’t handle in my 30s what I excelled at in my 20s.
