I find life fascinating, interesting, maddening, frustrating and depressing all at the same times from time to time.
The difficulty in this business is not one, but all of the listed factors, which in themselves individually are not a big deal, but rolled into a bundle can become a very big deal indeed.
I suppose it is the same in many occupations/professions and is dealt with differently by different people and that is good.
Because we ARE all different, we are as one with casks of Single Malts and casks of Single Grain whiskies.
The analogy IS very real and ought never to be just cast aside.
