Bye Bye Academia says:
I also lived with many ‘shoulds’ during my PhD. I still live with them: I should publish more, I should read more on the latest research, I SHOULD STAY IN ACADEMIA.
Time to change my mentality: I need to start focusing on all the amazing skills and experiences I gained during the PhD process and how useful these will be in helping me get the post-ac job I so much desire. Bye, bye, ‘shoulds’!
