At a crossroad


I feel trapped in my dead-end job, like a chess piece that gets pushed around by management. You could say I'm having a mid-life crisis and I feel it's now or never to quit my soul destroying job to do something of my own. My family is not supporting of this and prefer I stick it out to retirement. Advice for an old timer like me? Or should I just be practical and carry on?
