it is long overdue.... but i can no longer live with my parents. its a long story but my options are this:
1. stay within 1-2 hours of current job which is slow but with a supportive boss. then purchase a mobile home for the same price i would be renting month to month elsewhere and get part time job.
2. move far away from everything i know.... down south where 3 childhood friends live but i'll have no job and just my savings to get me by till i do. socially, it would help alot as i have more in common with them than the few remaining childhood friends (except one) that are even close to where i live now.
both have a shot of me being genuinely happier and ironically both have the same depressing chance of making me just as miserable. the first choice has a temporary safetly net as my boss would sincerely try and help me.... but even with that it would realistically only be a temporary means as i wouldn't want to over stay my welcome and endanger my means for survival.
not asking for someone to tell me which one is better, but your point of view on why i should pick one over the other may point out things i have not considered. i have enough to last one year even if i was unemployed on my own. so it all comes down to this choice 1 has bigger potential financial support, but alot lower social support. choice 2 has bigger social support (which aids me not being depressed), but lower financial support.
i'm not a materialistic person....but there needs to be enough to survive and enough to support a special someone in my life should that happen anytime soon. your thoughts on this appreciated..
