No shame In Work.
You are either known for what you do or what you stand for. Either way, you must be proud and take pride in what you are engaged in- your work.
Whilst I don’t think you should be ashamed of your work no matter the case, (whether you stumbled on it or you went for it), reward and fulfilment mustn’t be out of the equation.
Man usually find his highest level of expression in his work. The family is the other.
Enjoy your work. Don’t despise it. Accept it and grow to the level you desire.
