Growth is painful. Change is painful. But nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don't belong.

I love change, I thrive on change.
I look forward to it, I want it.
I learn and adapt quickly,
it is my advantage.

True, but it is also a very liberating feeling when you do something about it.

How come you didn't tell me this at about the 15 year mark of my 33 year marriage??? Timing!

@germangirl90439, @annewimsey I too stayed way too long in my marriage. I was married for over 25 years. But that is what we did, our generation stayed "for the kids" or whatever. My kids tell me I should have pulled the plug years earlier. But change is hard. After being a stay at home mom, and thinking I was not very bright, it has been great to get out where I am appreciated for my talents.

I felt that way when I was struggling to stay working with a disability then finally filed for SSDI at 59.

This is meaningful to me because I've been struggling with my job since I started, almost 21 months. I like the job most of the time, I am just not fast enough. Pay and benefits are good. I don't want to change jobs til I've been there two years.

That's a tough situation to be in. I have been in my current job for 5 years now. The first couple of years were tough because I was slow, knew very little and it was a very physical job. I stressed myself out to the max for quite a while and that was the hardest thing of all to manage. Now I look back on that and wish that I had had more confidence in my abilities and myself (It came at a bad time in my life when my confidence was at its lowest) because now It takes 3 people to replace me when I am not there. Hang in there and I hope it get's better for you. 😀
