From 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, 24 to 60 years… that is a big chunk of any individual’s life. It is unwise to spend that chunk enduring or merely coping with unpleasant situations in hope that the hours beyond 5pm, the weekends and retirement would provide some respite.
My mom used to make a Jewish-style braised chicken dish called “gedempte chicken”. It’s cooked very slowly with lots of onions and little other seasoning. She would stuff chicken neck skin with a mixture of flour, salt and pepper, grated onion and schmaltz, then sew the neck skin closed and braise these little “helzel” in the pot.
