Can I be having a mid-life career crisis at 30?
I just returned to work in a field I used to love (education) after 6 years of exploring other career options coupled with getting a AAS in administration and BA in Human Develoment.
Now that I'm back in this field, I feel even more confused about where my place is in the world of careers. I worked in education for 10 years and loved it but had to quit my job due to household relocation and thought I'd try out some other options when I moved. I've tried working in the non-profit world, medical social work, sales/marketing, administration (actually loved it but couldn't find full time work where I live), horsemanship, managed a garden center, ran my own business, (loved it) ,and even tried being a waitress. I did well with most of the things I've tried, but couldn't find that sense of belonging at any of them like I used to feel and found the managerial flaws at each job unbearable. A part of me thinks that long-term any job will give you that sense of belonging and certainty, but the other part just feels hopeless and incapable of truly excelling and being happy in a career knowing that it suits me.
