I know this is not necessarily a family matter or specific to the catholic faith but the advice on this forum is always helpful so hopefully this is ok to be asked here :).
Anyway…long story short my GF has a kid (not mine) and lives at home with her folks and works part time. We are both 27 and I am self employed and working in my home town. I find working in my hometown depressing as 90% of my friends live abroad either for work or experience and I kind of feel like I am just sitting here wasting my life (even though I am working). This is really starting to eat away at me as I growing up I always thought there is no way I will end up working here…not that it’s a bad place but like it’s a small town and there’s so much more out there.
So my friend is moving to Boston for the summer and has free accommodation and has invited me to go over for a few weeks which I would love. I brought this up with my gf and she was not impressed and didn’t really hear me out.
As well as this I have been thinking of travelling south east asia as it is cheap and I hear it’s amazing. Again my Gf could not really do this as she has her kid. She could probably do it for a few weeks but then have to go home.
So I am not really sure what to do? I love her but feel trapped and if I stay in this town working I think I am not going to be happy and wasting my 20’s sitting here instead of getting out and seeing the world.
Anyway, that’s the long story short lol. Thanks for reading and hopefully you guys can tell me what you think!
