Yes. Totally agree. I think it's entirely sensible to question your career choices if you are persistently unhappy with them. I've been in the field for 20 years and have had a couple of occasions where I've seriously tried to figure out whether there was something else I could do. Even now, I work part time (four days) to give myself space for side projects, self care and all that. I don't think burnout is inevitable in a career but it is possible so being equipped for it helps.
