No idea what to say here tbh. I guess I'll just say this:

Developers tend to be seen (and at times treated) as merely tools to get stuff done. I mean, duh, that's what you are paid to do; get stuff done. Though I can't say that what you describe here is unfamiliar to me. I too aspire to be more than "just" a developer/engineer. I'm not entirely sure what I want to do with my career, but programming 24/7 may not really be the thing for me.

I typically torment myself by thinking about the future. It makes me really anxious to think about where I will be in my career and whether or not that will make me happy and fulfilled.

Hang in there, many of us don't have it figured out yet! And thanks for sharing this piece! ๐Ÿ˜Š
