Between work, family, friends, and precious alone time, people are getting busier and busier. Your day might start at six o’clock in the morning when your kids wake up, and between breakfast and getting them off to school and yourself off to work, you’re probably feeling stretched a bit thin. Add to that a busy work day, looking after your kids in the evening, and trying your hardest to relax in the evenings, and plenty of people are understandably a bit overwhelmed with their lives at present. But, if on top of everything else, you are also wanting to give a new career a go, then you probably can’t even fathom figuring out how to start over professionally.
You will certainly be on the receiving end of a lot of advice from people who might think they understand your situation, but ultimately fall short. Some will tell you to just accept your life as is, but why should you have to compromise? Job satisfaction is a huge part of your continual happiness, so it’s important to prioritise your enthusiasm there. Others might say that you should go to university and get a degree to make the career switch. Whilst this might seem like a more preferable idea, realistically, it can be almost impossible to take that much time off of work to complete a degree. If you want to continue working whilst you’re studying, it can take over five years to get the qualification you think you need. But, if you don’t work so you can try to fast track your education, then you’ll obviously be without an income.
Trying to strike the right balance can be incredibly difficult, and you should never have to compromise on any part of your life. It isn’t fair to you or the people around you, and maintaining that balance is crucial to your happiness and mental health. But, if you really are passionate about changing to a new career path, then you also can’t let your lifestyle get in the way of your career. Finding the course that suits your educational needs as well as your time constraints is a definite challenge, and we understand that.
