I understand how you feel. Something similar happened to me. It's disheartening when you think you are bettering yourself, but end up making a mistake when choosing a career. Life is too short to be miserable at work. I'm on a mission now, though...to find something better-suited to me, regardless of what it takes. It sounds like you're on a mission, too. Good luck!

Actually, law enforcement and social work can be a good combination.

Welcome. What was your previous career? Social work can be a stressful job.

Good Luck - I think it's important to be passionate about what we do and very few are!

I was injured a few years and left a career that I absolutely loved. During my recovery, I completed a my education and became a social worker. I am licensed and working, (and I am thankful for that) but find that I am not passionate (more miserable every day) about what I do. I am currently working to re-enter my previous career.
