What do I do now

I recently moved from Chicago to the small town I grew up in located in MA. I have a three year old and her father (we are together but not married) came along.

We left Chicago in search of financial stability and to be around family as they could help with the baby. But is just sucks, my family isn't there like I thought they would be, I have given up my career in Chicago (which was in a rut anyway) I hate it here and want to move back to Chicago but I don't know if that is the right decision. I have no money no job and no place to live there and bad credit.

My boyfriend insists we will be fine and figure it out. But I am scared what should I do. I am so unhappy that I have been thinking of death. Help me I am dying inside. I used to be fun and fabulous now I am fat and mad.

What to do
by: Kay

Thank you for contacting Positive Personal Growth. Sometimes life is a struggle and I feel you should trust your boyfriend, that things will improve and you will get through this time. I feel you need to look for something to do that interests you, a job if that's possible, or if not at least a hobby that gives you time to enjoy your life.

Often we cause our own unhappiness by the thoughts that we have. I feel that if you can look on the move in a positive way and feel confident about it, rather than feel dejected because your family aren't helping in the way that you had hoped, you could begin to make plans to better your life. They have their own lives to contend with and because they are unable to help doesn't mean they don't care about you.

Change the attitude that you have about the move and look for the positives, trust your boyfriend, and support him. He is trying to do his best to make a happy life for you both, and with the right attitude towards him and yourself, you can get through this period.

Only you can decide what it is that you should do, no one can live your life for you. Choose happiness!

Good luck,
