I did it everyone. After a year-and-a-half on the insurance defense hamster wheel, I just accepted an offer at a boutique firm that handles complex commercial litigation. If you need me, I'll be in the corner crying happy tears into a bottle of champagne.

Can anyone please kindly help?

Has anyone else felt this way? How did handle it? Is there a different career path I can take or am I destined to sell insurance forever?
