Family Before Wider Community
My children have had the most impact on my career decisions. I want to be around for them when they wake up in the morning and I also want to make them a good supper and put them to bed. In the past, working shift work was very hard on my family and I left that job so that I could focus on them. I heard a lot of criticism at that point for leaving "a good, stable, unionized job", but it was from the wider community and came from nobody whose opinion I truly valued or who had any true insight into my situation or even what the job was REALLY like. I chose to ignore those opinions.
