I am back with an update on the move and this post about never settling for less. Warning – this is going to be very personal! I think you can handle it though. You know me.
The move has been a lot tougher than I expected, if I’m being completely honest. I wish I could say it’s been a piece of cake and I’m fitting back into Seattle quite nicely, but it’s just not true. I feel weird being back, and living with my parents . . . well . . . it’s hard after being on my own for so long. I feel like I’ve reverted to my childhood, and like I’ve taken a step backwards. That part is hard.
There’s also the issue of a job. I’ve been looking diligently, and I guess these things just take time. I’ve realized from this whole experience that 1) I’m a very social person and 2) having a day job gives me piece of mind and gratification. Not just because of the salary, but I like a routine. I love interacting with people. I’m not doing that now, and it’s wearing on me, and making me lose confidence. But hopefully something will come along soon.
The whole scenario has caused me to think “did I make a mistake?” It’s also caused me to fall into a bit of a depression. And ask a lot of questions. Did I think this plan out well enough before I did it? How do you really know what the “right thing” is? Am I going to get a job? A place to live? Eventually will I get married – and then have a child?
I just have to focus on not settling . . . moving forward. I think it has to get worse before it gets better. Do you agree? I’d love to hear your advice – and your stories about never settling!
