Ok I am graduating in law and accounting soon but I am applying for reception/admin positions to improve my changes of finding a job.

The question is how should I respond if employers ask me why I am not pursuing to be a lawyer?

Should I just tell them the truth that I don't really want to be a lawyer anymore because lawyering jobs are really stressful and involves working long hours like 50 hours+ a week which I cannot handle. (I have multiple invisible disabilities). And finding a law job to apply for right now is extremely hard. For every 20 admin/reception positions there is only one law job available to apply for.
