hello everyone. I'm new to the forum and hoping someone might have some advice for me. I'm not sure that advice is even the right word anymore as I've been over this so many times and still no further forward.
Im 44 now and back in May was made redundant after 20 years in the same company. By coincidence my partner had also lost her job through unfair dismissal so we both had some cash and decided to take a year out, travelling and working.
We had managed to secure a ski job in December but our plans came to a crashing halt on the eve of our year out when she decided that she didn't want to travel and instead went home to Poland where she now has a job and living with family.
I didnt want want to give up on the Dream as my house had been rented and more to the point I figured that this might be the only time in my life to travel. It's taken forever but I've finally managed to get what looks to be a good job in the Alps though I'm still waiting for the contract.
at the same time I've been looking for places to go for the next 4-6 weeks but every time I go online I start to panic and my brain boggles To the point that I cannot make any decision. I'm now thinking do I even want to go away by myself?
i have travelled by myself before and I remember it being very mixed, fun at times when I met people and did activities but it could be very lonely at times.
I ju just don't know what to do. Will going away help or am I better off trying to find something here and rebuild myself. I feel that if I were to have a job or focus here in the UK at least I would be with my friends and family instead of potentially by myself but I'm worrying about what if scenarios and can't seem to stop worrying.
