some people are burned out and stressed out from working but they don't want to change employment as they're paid handsomely. i understand as most of them are supporting their families or are paying for debts or are sustaining a lifestyle. but if you have the choice, would you hold on to it? or look for an average paying job but which you enjoy so much?
Although this might sound a bit odd, I think it depends on the type of stress. I actually enjoy a "bit " of pressure, I like the adrenalin. So, I guess, a well paid job with some pressure but where I can easily manage the stress. I have had jobs that were just too stressful and then every area of your life is negatively affected, which can never be good.
