I have wanted to move back for a long time. But my best friend of almost 8 years, the person i am now madly in love with, is my main reason to move. I don’t know if this is a rational decision or not. I am moving to find happiness; I am uprooting my life because i am MISERABLE out here…He was the light at the end of my tunnel, I DESERVE TO BE HAPPY.. I am turning to this page to ask for input. I, personally, am 100% behind my decision; Arizona is not. My family back east, they are beyond excited. BUT….am I doing it for the right reasons?
Out here I have a good paying job, I got my college education, I have no car, roughly two or three friends, and constant issues with my daughter’s father, and the babysitters, I am unhappy, and again I always wanted to move home.
Out there, I have all of my family, the love of my life, whom has a good paying job, a home to move into with him, and the life insurance my grandfather left me. He assures me he is financially stable enough to get my daughter and I through any financial hurdles and if I can not find a job in time. He is great with my daughter, they have met twice and she was infatuated with him. I don’t EXPECT him to be a father to her but he wants to take that role, and so do I.
The catch where I am unsure is.... Do I pack up my daughter and I and move back home? Am I making the right decision? How am I going to find out if I do... You have to learn from mistakes right? I feel trapped in Arizona, I am living for everyone else. When do I get to live for ME? My daughter is young enough that she would not remember the move. I have to consider her father too. He beat me once when she was 7 months old and that’s why I moved out. I will NEVER get back with him. Do I stay here so he can see his daughter? Or do I move back East with full confidence and if it doesn’t work out between my best friend and I…..At least I am finally home right?
I would appreciate anyone who has any input for
