Savvy Confessions: I'm Lost and I Need Career Guidance

This anonymous posting comes from our Savvy Confessions group, where all identities are kept anonymous.

I just graduated from law school and ordinarily that's something to celebrate but I also just failed the bar. I took it pretty hard since I felt confident that I would pass and that this would open the doors to me being an attorney. I've been feeling like the legal field is not exactly my number one passion, but I feel like since I put three years in and spent so much time (not to mention blood, sweat, and tears) on this endeavor that it's hard for me to let go. A lot of my attorney friends and mentors are telling me to retake the bar so I'm really feeling the pressure. A lot of it is pride too.

Should I retake the bar and risk being unemployed after? I can't get a proper full-time job because I'll have to take two months off a job before the exam to concentrate on studying for the bar. Or should I just forget it and pursue something that's more interesting to me than law?
