Don't quit your job without another plan !! Honestly the ''go for your dreams'' advise is often illusory. People quit they're jobs and stark making a living writing a blog about how it's good to quit your job and go for your dreams. They then inspire more people to quit they're jobs and make a living telling others how it's important to go for your dreams. It's kind of a pyramid scheme. I'm not saying stay in a shit job but don't throw it away in hopes that you will then look for a new life. It's easily a way to get us in a much worst place ! I speak from personal experience What you need to do, rather, is take a deep inventory of why you are unhappy now. Could it be that you are not seeing the positives in your situation (i.e. you are making an income, which is a start) or is it that truly you need to find a different job, career, etc. If it's the second part, then you can start working on that while you still keep your current job.
