I Am Having A Good Crisis

I think.

I am very confused right now and I am not certain what to do about it. There has been an unexpected occurance in my life that could turn out to be a great opportunity for me, but I was unprepared for it to come along, so now I am scrambling to play "catch up."

I still can't give out the deets, but some of you already know anyway. The upside for me is huge, but it would be a big leap for me to take and not one that I would enter into lightly.

So I keep wavering back and forth and trying to figure out what decision I will make. It doesn't help that I would end up letting some people down if I decided to make this change. People that I like and respect quite a bit.

The one thing in my life that I am happy and satisfied with is the one thing that is fucking with my head right now.

So....

I come to you, my friends, to give me some advice. Sure you don't have all of the details, but if you were in my shoes and were presented with a potential life-changing opportunity, what would you do? How would you react? Especially if you were happy with the way things were going.

If you want more information, you can e-mail me.

Love,
ADW

I think by weighing all of your options, including long-term benefits, risks, and resulting rewards, you're doing the right thing.

I'd be the same way if I were in your hot fuck-me-pumps.

Similar to Avitable's advice--whenever I am faced with a major decision, I just go back to the basics and make a list of pros and cons.
As a bonafide people pleaser, I know it is hard to remember, but at the end of the day the person you should be the most concerned about letting down is yourself!

Yes, I would definitely get the boob job if I were you.

You can publically admit that you'll run away with me ... it's OK.

Otherwise, make a list of pros and cons, give them all a weighted score (what is most important to you get a bigger score), talk to your family ... then run away with me.

I suck at giving advice. But I think I know you well enough to know that you will make the right decision.

metalmom said...

Will you regret not doing it?(whatever your "it" is?) Will anyone be hurt by your decision?

Go for it. Life's an adventure...try new things...be all you can be...and all that other shit!

will this new opportunity make you happier? is it a better opportunity? is it something that you would like to do in the future, it just so happen to come about now?

ADW,
You have to determine what is best for you and your family. Regardless of who you disappoint or upset, you have to take care of your home, first.

Good luck,
Chuck

The people you're worried about letting down?

Do they have to live in your shoes? Or pay your bills?

Would you expect them to do what is right for them?

How will you feel if you don't do it?

When we're young we regret the things we do. As we get older and look back, we regret the things we didn't do.

I had a decision like this a few years ago with a job. A totally unexpected offer came my way. I was blown away. I liked what I was doing but this was much more everything. Money,responsibility,exposure in the industry et all. I was in a quandry. I did the list people are suggesting. I talked to people who knew me and the industry. I eventually did take the new position. I have never really regreted it. I some times miss the old position. I don't miss the money and other perks. All in all I am glad I made the choice I did, It has changed my life style and it has changed me( for the better). You will make the right decision. if you go for it and are not happy you can change what you did. If you don't you will never know. Good luck.

I think whatever will benefit you and your family in the long run is the one you need to really look into.

And of course weigh all the options... long haul and short haul.

Take it. Take it and fucking run!

i always think, on my deathbed am I going to say "shit, wish i had done xyz when i had the chance." This is my guiding principle...

VE said...

Well it is obvious. Switching from dial up to high speed always is. And, yes, it is a life changing decision. The porn is so much less choppy with high speed...

Jake Titus said...

Wow, some pretty solid advise all around. I agreee with the pro/con tactic. In the end remember that having regrets later in life really sucks. Make your decisions based on your needs and what makes you happy. BTW I second Dyck's advise.
