    Are you just going through a difficult period which is causing you to question yourself? That would be a normal reaction during a tough time. Having said that, I've heard stories of people who worked in the career of OTHER peoples' choosing for decades, before standing up and taking on the career they always wanted - and were very happy. Don't waste your precious time doing something you don't enjoy. Work can be difficult at the best of times - the last thing you want is to struggle with these difficulties while not enjoying the job anyway!!

    Be careful. A bachelors degree in psychology isn't worth a whole lot. Masters as case manager is about 60 a year.

    F--- 'em. Begin the career that makes you happy. Otherwise your just working for the money. While money's a handy and heady thing, it still pretty much means you're waiting to retire. Doing things their way means the most you'll get out of life is miserable boredom.
