This past week has been such a strange and very difficult week. As most of you may know, I left my job, my home, my comfort zone of St. Louis and moved to Houston. My husband put his faith in me wanting to do this and didn't question my decision.
I started my new job Monday and had a short 3 day week. I'm in a bit of an overwhelming culture shock as I adjust to the differences of this job compared to my last. I assumed some things would be the same since the jobs are in the same industry. However, I would have to say nothing at all is similar in any way.
I can usually handle change if I know it's coming, but this has been entirely different than anything I've experienced. I find myself exhausted, scared, frustrated, and just needing a familiar comfort zone. Unfortunately there is almost nothing familiar here.
I have my sisters, and that's great. But we have no home of our own and I do not feel even slightly comfortable at my new job.
Help! What do you do when you feel like you've made a huge mistake? Do you keep trying and put in all your effort? Or do you go back to what you know you can handle?
Today is Thanksgiving, and I know I have many things to be thankful for. A roof over my head, food in my belly, a paycheck, etc... but those aren't the things I can focus on with the thoughts and fears going through my head of what lies ahead...
