I had earlier quit my job (1 yr) and gave two attempts from home, missed prelims by a narrow margin both times. CSP 2022 result had a very detrimental role on my mental health. I decided to take the first job that I could and took a break from prep(2023 attempt).
Now, fast forward to 6 months, the work load is so immense/ toxic, i am not getting enough time to prepare for cse. So, the thought of quiting my job again pops in my head. But, i am very hesitant this time. I don't know what to do.
I have always considered MBA as my backup, and also planning on giving CAT this year. I know all this sounds messed up and pessimistic, but I would really like some advice from aspirants who were in the same boat.
Option 1: quit, prepare for (2024 CSE + CAT 2023) (maybe move to Delhi ?) Option 2: switch, hope to get a better work life balance and prepare for (2024 CSE)
Giving up on CSE after putting so much effort is so difficult. ( sunk cost fallacy ?) Asking strangers for advice is weird, but it is difficult to explain these stuff to family/ friends. Please share your thought, if possible.
