Is it only worthwhile to get a PhD if you want to go into academia (field dependent)? How do you know if you're in it for the right reason/you've got what it takes to finish?

1. I never finished my Bachelors. 2. But I completed a Masters 3. I've been on a hiatus from the PhD. You have to really love what you are studying, you have to be prepared for the gamut of emotions and the SERIOUS imposters syndrome. You have to feel that its the right reason for you - if you are hesitant or not sure, as a person who has more experience in the workforce than in academia, I'd say get out there and work first. Get connected and committed and come back when you are ready.
