  3. Made huge career mistakes and want to restart but how?


I am 31 years old with no job, 2 degrees, and live with my dad and ironically older brother who has some form of age regression. I’ve been trying to find a job the past two years, and I quit the job I had last year making 50k/year. I’ve come to realized it was the biggest mistake of my life, as the job was extremely easy. I only quit over poor management, and got into a very big argument with one of the managers. I have no life, I just sit at home and watch youtube videos of people making tons of money vlogging and feel even more depressed at times. I’ve made so many mistakes in my life and a lot of it was influenced by my addiction to drugs/porn and it wasn’t until recently I quit these things. People say its never too late, but it feels like it was too late because no matter how hard I try no employer will give me a job. I am also waiting to hear back from another college for yet another degree, but this time I will try to take it serious and not party day and night like I did before. I feel like nobody cares at this point and my career is over, but I can’t just give up. I really need some hard hitting advice because I don’t know what to do anymore. I’ve tried programming recently, but I am not very good at it and it doesn’t seem like I will ever be. My last job, I was very good at data visualization, and I even learned SQL and making reports which people tended to like a lot. I’ve tried so hard to get a data analyst job, but I am either unqualified or don’t receive a call. I actually applied for school to learn more about the field and be better equipped for a job but I haven’t heard back and with COVID floating around, its the only reasoning I heard behind not having my decision yet. Anyways I just want good career advice at this point. I have a lot of drive and heart, and I can definitely learn anything with time. I just want to know what’s best for me right now, and what route would you go if you were me.

I sincerely appreciate any honest feedback,

Thank you
