If you're feeling like a bad pilot during your instrument rating that is completely normal. I would not translate this very typical overhwhelmed-how-does-anyone-do-this-day-in-day-out feeling into "I can't be a pilot."
That being said. If you genuinely feel like you can't see yourself doing this for 20 to 40 years then yes I could cut your losses and decide on another career. Like another anon said things are not about to get easier and that means that you have to genuinely enjoy your work or you are going to not want to do it regardless of how far in you get. I wish you luck anon and do what works for you. I for one love flying and don't really know what I'd do without it, can you say the same?>>1489990
Much larger bailout package sooner than anything seen post 9/11 or post '08 recession.
Much higher internal attrition at all the "major" carriers thus blunting the fully felt effect of a furlough.
Much more globalized economy compared to either of the previous two serious downturns.
Government sponsored liquidity in the form of loans, warrants, and payroll grants that are designed to at least stave off the most violent short term cash flow problems at every major airline.
Honestly, this is going to suck in the short to medium term but in the long term pilots will remain hireable, retirements will continue, and eventually we will see growth again. Nobody likes the doom and gloom and it doesn't help when someone says "this is bad" but offers no supporting evidence.
