When I was a volunteer firefighter, there were a couple times that I spoke with people after their uninsured house just burned down with everything in it.
They were probably slightly in shock and maybe not fully processing the situation.
However, the general attitude was that of a sober gratitude; to be alive, safe, and with their family.
I don’t wish that on anyone, but I can appreciate how that experience forces someone to re-evaluate their priorities and start from scratch.
Things are things and status is fickle. But life is precious.
There are probably rich, famous people laying on their death bed right now that would give everything to trade places with you. You, and your life, are of great worth. Even when things seem to be not so good.
When I was in Africa, I left base one time. The guy driving me said, as we passed a group of children that stood outside the gates begging all day, that someone he knew gave a kid an extra water bottle once. He didn’t have time to feel good about it because, as they drove on, they looked back and saw all the kids beating the shit out of each other for that 20oz water bottle.
You are also in a land of extreme wealth and opportunity.
So, move. Dont move. Whatever. But you have a life to live and are blessed to be in a place of so many bright future possibilities.
I feel like I have said all these exact same things in another post. And others have said similar.
Turn your frown upside down, get a spring in your step, take the bull by the horns and start living your best life instead of dwelling on the bad stuff.
