I’m in a pretty bad situation. I’ve just been divorced and moving toward filing annulment papers. No kids. I’m living back home with my Mom. I have my BA in English Lit but I’m working part time as a janitor since it’s the only thing I could get in my area right now. Of course I can’t support myself doing this. I’ve been asking God ever since I became Catholic to give me a direction to go in with my life but I never get any answer. There is no career that I can see myself in. I like writing but I just don’t think I’m good enough at it to do anything in that direction. I’m thinking of going back to school…but I just have no clue what to do. Should I just go back to school and try to get a degree that I can get a decent career in without really wanting to do that particular thing? If God isn’t telling me what to do, should I just do that?
I suppose some kind of thing like nursing would be in high demand but it isn’t something I would like to do if I had a choice. I was a CNA for about six months but I left my job during the divorce because I was in such a bad state (and not much better right now). It wasn’t a job I liked doing. I would love to study something like theology but I was rightly fired a couple of years ago from my Catholic Diocese so…maybe there’s no future in that with my kind of background. I don’t have a very good employment history obviously. I’m trying to do better now and get my life back together but…I just don’t know what to do.
