Casual conversations

Life is in a weird phase right now. Major breakup 6 months back, best friend moved out of the country, and I will be moving to Seattle from NYC for a new job (I love NY). The job is something I have..

Totally understandable. Every thing familiar to you is changing and it’s a lot of changes at once. I’d freak out too. Imagine having a shelf of China plates and cups that you LOVE (omg I sound so old), and imagine it getting chipped or broken and how sad it’d make you. But it’s also an opportunity to buy new China that you may love even more. You’re in that exciting phase of life where you’re looking for your new exciting and (hopefully improved 😉) partner, new friends and new job related opportunities in a new place. It’ll take time but it’ll happen, because you’re a great person and you are passionate about this new job you took. Sometimes an empty shelf of China is all you need.

I can totally relate Op, but it sounds like a change will do you good. You can always come back if you’re not happy

..wanted for a long time. So I should be happy about that atleast, but I am not gleaming with joy :/ I hate being an adult sometimes with so many complexities. Anyone ever felt like this?
