Kathy it was for me as much as for anyone else. I share my home with my elderly parents (81) and am having to take on more and more of the household chores while still doing my 35hr job, 12hour weekly commute, eat and sleep. I started off trying to keep everything as I remembered them keeping the house and garden so was becoming more and more short tempered. Wrote on here and got the kind of advice which told me to get a life, the work and the housework will all still be there when you get round to it as long as the dirt is not meeting you on the path to the door. I still find it hard but I am getting there and my home still stands
Hi and good luck with your new job. I hope it's ok for me to say, don't know if you have already been there working.It just sounds like your over think things, (as bad already) I am a perfectionist and always want everyone to be happy, and sometimes I start to think of what could go wrong before they do. And the only reason I ask is because it sounds like your really trying to get alot done right (a new job in a new city, quitting smoking, and making everyone happy) I think if it was me just start from the beging and try not to stress yourself out to much and just take it as it comes day to day. And get to know everything (new job, city, and new people) And you sound like your going to have a new adventure. Hope it is great, and please let me know how it's going and remember to breath

I am pretty freaked out because of a new job and new city. My plan to make it better? Stop giving such a crap about other people that I don't even know. Comparing myself to other people? Not necessary. Worrying what my new boss will think about me? Whatever. I'm amazing, and he knows it. If he doesn't, he will come to know it. But it doesn't help him to think it's easy to get the work done in 8 hours when I'm staying an extra 3 hours each night to make everything perfect. Even my clients. I want them happy, but really, it's a job. They're not my family or friends. I am within my rights to go home and chill out after 8 hours. They don't need immediate service on every possible thing.
Overall, the goal is to try to connect more with myself internally than all the noisy information that keeps coming at me externally. Also, I'm quitting smoking, so I'll be trying to make some foray into nature a few days this week rather than experiencing nature on my patio while giving myself the cancer.
Good luck to everyone here who's trying to change themselves too. This is the work we were made to do. This is our adult homework.
