    That's a good sign. Means going to law or justice just might be for you. Search the web, as there are plenty of websites that can help you understand different professions and how to know if they are for you. And don't be afraid to move away to get the job you love. :)

    Totally agree with this but the OP states she can't stick with anything for very long. Most successful people do not give up and when things get tough they get going and don't get discouraged easily.

    The longest I was at a job was 10 years and that was at a boarding stable. I'm trying to change and stick with something...I hate that I'm a halfway person.

    When I was younger I had some jobs I hated but I always told myself I had to stick with it for 2 years so I would have a good reference. It always had it's ups and downs. When I was a bit older and I was in sales I had some clients that I hated going to see and always thought about driving past and avoiding them. When I needed to do something I didn't want to I just challenged myself and pushed through it and it always got easier. Just try and challenge yourself so you can improve upon your faults and weakness. The 1st step is admitting you have a problem and work through it.

    In my past, I was in the same point. Wasn't sure what to do and what I wanted. It took for a while to find my path but I'm happy that I took that time and found my path.

    My tip would be to study something general or something 'introductive' to which you don't need to bond yourself 100% if you don't finally find it as your way. Or then (I'd see that even better) have some practical experience from different fields. Especially if there's something that you're interested in but aren't sure, would it be able to have a contact to work life so you could see what that field really includes? Anyways, IMO the most important thing is that you do something since sitting at home can finally turn very passivating thing.

    Also I think that study what do you feel important to you. With a lot of determination you can get far. And the fields that you mentioned don't even sound the most hardest ones.

    Good luck . I'm sure that you'll find your way, was it law or something else. With some people it just takes some time.
