I was approaching seven years with a law firm, and I was unhappier than ever.
While I was good at my job, the company culture wasn’t a good fit, we were constantly short-staffed without any relief, and there was no room for advancement. Moreover, I was neither passionate about, nor interested in the legal field. Despite going to bed in tears and waking up dreading the day, my salary, insurance, 401k, and flexible schedule made me complacent about finding a career that I loved. Change felt daunting.
