Over the overthink.
My mind times a million more overpasses.
I started planning this post long after midnight. Talk about overthinking.
Only two more months and then I am finished out here. I can go back to our place in the city. This long distance relationship has worked quite well as times, but lately it feels like a disaster. For me, disasters equal overthinks.
Key stumbling blocks:
I want to go away this Christmas. The other doesn´t have the time. I want to work overseas again. The other doesn´t have the career opportunities to do it.
My work opportunities are somewhat limited in Adelaide. The other works for a good company with good prospects. I am ready to branch out somewhere new, meet new people etc.. The other needs to stay in our city for career development. The other seems happy with a limited number of friends.
It looks bleak, but at the end of the day I want to continue this relationship. We get on very well together and I haven´t felt this way before. Right now I am unsure of how to balance these issues.
I'm looking at short term contracts overseas (like the China post). I hope that this is enough to let me travel a little but not be away too long. The question is whether this is just a Band Aid solution.
How long can a long distance relationship be?
