Thank you. I am, well, way too nonadversarial for such an adversarial position. I found the petty fights to be galling/nauseating. Nastiness over little pieces of paper ferchrissakes. Tension you could cut with a chainsaw.
I can still work up some major stress if anyone suggests I go back to it (and people ask, often in job interviews, how nice).
At one time I debated whether to go into law, but it was tougher road with more limited opportunities for my generation than yours and I opted for journalism instead--it was still a man's field but was beginning to open up for women.
I spent a few years working in the print media and in television. I left the field for good when I was ordered to push a microphone into the face of a grieving mother and ask her thoughts of her daughter who had just been found murdered. This was right after being ordered to restructure a story to be more forceful in criticism of allegations against a local businessman (who was subsequently exhonerated).
Thereafter I used acquired skills in various other fields, but never was tempted to return to a business that required me to be somebody that I was extremely uncomfortable being.
But I can use those acquired skills in many other ways. And I bet you are finding ways to put your legal skills to good use too without being miserable in your profession.
