I noticed these days I have very little patience for people. My GP said, in order to work in Community Service industry, one needs to have high stress threshold.
Due to my mental health issues, I just dont have that patience anymore. I get agitated with people easily. I have trouble being assertive. I tend to over react to situations.
Goal was to become peer support worker. Now I have to start over and pursue something else. I have worked in Banking industry and did accounting cert 4 at TAFE before. Perhaps try that again? what does everyone think?
I want to pursue a new career. I had alot of time to think about my future while working in process work. My mental health issues are progressively getting worse. So although I am devastated right now, I dont have luxury to give up! I will keep fighting.
I am currently enrolled in Community Service course at TAFE. I am thinking I should cut my losses and do something else.
What does every one think?

I think it’s good to do something you’re passionate about @Mavrixx9. I’m nearly finished my diploma in community service work and trust me, I don’t cope well with stress. However mental health is something I really wanted to work in so I’m going to try my hardest. Most organisations recognise the need for self care these days, as yes it can be stressful.
