I haven’t experienced this myself but my sister went through a very similar situation about a year and a half ago. After going back and forth for a long time, she finally quit the job she hated and went for less pay/more education. Money is still a little tight for her but she now has a job in a field she LOVES and she’s very happy she made the switch, even though it has had its stressful moments.
If your Fiance is ok with you leaving and you have the opportunity to make a change…go for it! Will it be hard? Yes, but probably not harder than sticking it out at a place where you’re really unhappy.

Happiness with less money wins over Unhappiness with more money any day for me. I recently switched careers and make less with less benefits but I am infinitely more happy. It was worth it. There is no amount of money that would make my previous career’s level of stress acceptable.

iI am going through a similar predicament right now. I know I can not stay in my job for long becuase I am so stressed out. Fiance wants me to take career testing like he did so I can find out what I should be doing. It may mean that I go back t school though. I have been toying with the idea as I always wanted to be a Spanish teacher.

I am thinking that its only a couple years to sacrifice money, etc in order to do something I actually enjoy. Good luck!

I used to work as a manager at my previous job, and then took a drastic pay cut and demotion to my current job, and I love it. Yes, it sucks that we lost a decent chunk of income, but I used to have bad days at work two to three times a week, at least. I’ve been at my new job almost six months, and have maybe had two rough days, total. BIG difference, and my sanity and health is well worth it.
