Trust that whatever comes next for you will be better than, good.
That would be me, and thanks for your nice words. I'm no hero, I did what I needed to do, and made absolutely sure I never let my benefactors down. Having said that Oracle is the most toxic place I have ever worked, nobody comes anywhere near second place, I KNOW I was one of the truly lucky ones. I could not believe what other groups had to endure and it made me appreciate my situation that much more. I'd rather remember that and the good experiences than the anything else. There are plenty of bad, but I don't want any of that to diminish the good in the slightest. To me, if I do that, "they" win.
I'm fine, thank you. I did freelance for a while and now I am retired. I did OK. I'd do a freelance project or two if the opportunity presents itself, I like my work that much, but otherwise I am in a good place. I come on here from time to time to see how things are and to give (hopefully) useful advice and my perspective. I have no regrets, except maybe I stayed too long. I'd rather walk out than be carried out. But that's a minor issue.
I hope everyone gets into a similar situation and has the same work experience I did. There is little better than waking up looking forward to your day and leaving later on feeling good about yourself. Everyone should have that.
