I would not worry about what you got your degree in and whether you are using it.

After getting a masters in a certain field, there was no way I was going to do anything else, even though it was very hard to find a job in the field. I did find a job, but it turned out to be many disadvantages to working in that field. Putting so much time and effort made it harder to “give up” and do something else, which probably would have been for the best if I had done it much sooner.

Lots of people end up doing something different, and that does not make the masters a waste of time.
