Read these Reddit comments that express how some people feel about programming,
Derek: I enjoy programming, but of course, you get frustrated when stuck on a problem for way too long. But solving that problem is a great feeling.
Arianny: I frickin love the work. The pay should get better with experience.
Dana: I’m passionate about it and I enjoy it when everything works, but not everything will work right away.
Alejandro: I have been a programmer for more than 25 years. I love what I do today. I love coding. I love creating things. I love that people use what I build.
Caleb: What I don’t love about programming is the other stuff that comes along with programming. Dealing with people, meetings, unrealistic expectations, and misunderstandings.
Kimberly: I love it, because I love to learn, and there is always something to learn. It’s also exhausting because there is always something to learn.
Daniel: I have to drink lots of coffee to find motivation. I really want to know but I don’t like it really. I find it frustratingly complicated sometimes and feel so desperate. And of course, I hate my current job. I wish I was 20 years younger.
Lucy: It’s not like coding is my favorite thing in the world or something I’d do consistently if I hit the lotto. I code in my free time every now and then and have a few personal projects. However, I mostly chose this career path for the money.
