I have "fuck you" money for the foreseeable future.

They paid you a couple million euros as severance?
Yes, and I also got a chocolate cake with candles.

In reality, if you can live on the same level of comfort as before, for a year, that's more than enough. It doesn't need to be indefinite. I'm too young to retire anyway.

FYI I'm fine now.

I'm working at a company with good financial background, developing challenging products, doing overtime by my own. I am actually going forward in my career, picking up a lot more responsibility. And I'm surrounded with people I can learn from (while they can learn from me).

I moved to the Netherlands. Moving was a bit stressful of course. I have a bigger apartment, which is a lot more quiet. I should've done this more than a year ago.

A job is just a way to pay the bills.  If it's low stress and pays well then keep it, BUT you need some hobbies to keep yourself mentally and physically active on your own time.   The danger is when you spend work doing nothing then get home and do the same nothingness.  I fell in that trap myself. You get complacent with just relaxing all the time then it turns into depression.  In my case it was a combination of things.  Lack of daylight was probably a big factor.  I'm not a morning person and sleep in on my days off.  If I sleep in too much then I wake up in the dark. Our days are very short most of the  year so you need to get up early enough to see it.

I recently finished building a shed, still have finishing touches to do, but projects like that keep me going.  I spend dead time at work researching stuff that's hobby/home project related to keep inspiration going. Funny thing is though I tend to be more motivated to do those things while I'm at work, when I'm home I just want to relax, but have to force myself off my butt and once something is done there is a sense of satisfaction.
