Hello people! A working junior developer here. This might sound a little weird; but does anyone also feel stressed and bad when you’re spending your free time on non-coding things?
I love coding and have a list of things I’d like to get my hands on; meanwhile, I also enjoy learning new languages. Every time I spent my weekend on reading a book/working through a podcast in a language I’m learning, I feel bad and stressed out.
The source of the negative feelings comes from that, whenever I choose to do anything else other than coding in my free time, a voice in my head will constantly remind me that, I’m NOT growing and improving as a developer. This feeling is stressing me out and I’m just wondering how people who share this feeling deal with it. Any ideas or input are all appreciated!
