Discussion on: The peace of not coding

I really worry about how many people out there feel like they're obligated to be coding every single hour of the day. It's kind of crazy how, especially in the "dev twitter" or "dev social media" sphere there is this perception I get that everyone feels like they should be making a new codepen to post, make a new blog, make a new module....

It's okay. Don't code unless you wanna. Your career will be fine.

Especially when you see people posting "Weekend! I can finally get some coding done"

There's kind of a panic that can set in too when you don't want to code on the weekends after you used to do it all the time.

"Wait i used to love this why don't i want to do it anymore oh god."
