A new beginningWatch this post
I've been living alone in a town I really don't like and have no children or close family and no friends, for over 30yrs.
I consciously became unemployed 6yrs ago as I found the kind of work I did was really not for me. Thought I'd made a good friend a few years ago through walking my dog but suddenly whenever I suggested going out for lunch or to do something else, there was always an excuse for not going and then she became a grandmother so eventually everything changed. I was invited to a few of her family events but was always the one on my own and crowds make me very uncomfortable. We no longer keep in touch other than a Christmas card.
For a few years, I've wanted to sell my house and move somewhere away from this town, a new start. My next move will be my last so I want it to be the right home in the right place. With Covid it's been difficult getting out to go and visit areas that I like the look of.
For now, I've just got to wait it out. I think next year, 2022 will be my year and who knows, maybe I'll eventually meet new friends.
