I have made the decision to move back home with my parents once my lease is up in June. Where I’m at, there’s no way for my career to really go and develop and the industry I’ve been trained in isn’t really established here. I feel like my life is going nowhere in this city and I’ve encountered roadblock after roadblock and trauma after trauma. I’ve experienced a lot of dating violence and I can’t make friends here.
The thing is, I’m absolutely terrified. I’ve been crying every day and I’m losing sleep. I’m so scared I won’t find employment where my mom lives. I have until May to find something, but I’m scared that I’m making a huge mistake because I’m leaving a stable job to go back home. I’ve been talking to friends back home who are saying I should apply for jobs now because the economy was hit really hard, but others are saying to wait until the 3 month mark before I apply to anything. I’m just not sure what to do in this pandemic world. I’m just so miserable where I’m living right now and need a fresh start. It also doesn’t help that the friends that I have made in this location aren’t being supportive of my decision.
What would you say to someone in my shoes? Or have you been in my shoes and have any guidance? Any help is appreciated.
