I got the same type of advice from my parents. My Dad worked in finance before he went to the Gubmint. He sat me down and told me to save from my first paycheck. My Mum gave me a lot of great advice about how to manage life balance and deal with people (advice she unfortunately now regularly challenges). I am below retirement age but having lived with 'manageable overhead' allowed me to get out before it ate me alive. There wasn't really an option to consult. The local medical establishment is very toxic right now, even for Docs. Folks are are leaving in droves and the hospital has managed to offend pretty much everyone except the brand new hires.
I would love to be in a place that I could use my knowledge for good but haven't found a place to do that yet. Liability sucks. I do the next best thing. I teach the baby nurses in their first Clinical experience how to be resilient and how to look at the PERSON they are taking care of. I miss my patients a lot tho. I am thankful to have met some in social places after I retired. It is always cool to know what happened to them.
