Question: Hi Moxie,
I never thought I would be in this position but I met a guy who fits the bill of who I want in a life partner. Despite taking things slow over a couple of months to really get to know and understand each other, I can see that things may quickly get to ‘committed’ stage. He is the real deal. But I still have not shared one of my dark sides with him.
Despite my great academic credentials, I have not been employed for a year or so. No debts, and decent savings to see me through. The real truth is that I used to be a complete workaholic for so many years but then had a couple of terrible job-related experiences with 2 narc bosses that broke me up within, and I am in the midst of figuring out what I want to do, but not fully there yet. I do not even know how long it will take me to get ‘there’ whatever it will be for me. The very thing that used to give me deep joy, a sense of purpose is now the thing that fills me up with dread.
This is the one thing that is holding me back both in the area of a personal life, a healthy job life and a healthy social life. Any thoughts, suggestions on how do I navigate this rocky transition period. Thanks.
