At 8:27 AM Central Standard Time, I received a formal offer letter from my new company. It’s a better pay rate than I was even expecting. Just a modest pay cut but with the much lower cost of living in Abilene compared to DFW(TF) it will feel like a raise.
I didn’t even hesitate – I accepted the offer and didn’t think twice. My resignation from my current company has been submitted and I will be preparing to move my things back to Abilene next week.
I’m so, so happy right now. Bawling my eyes out, but in a good way. I know I will be much happier being closer to home, and it’s just surreal right now.
Thank you all for your continued support over the past six months. It’s been a blessing and has been noticed. I feel like I’ve been brought back from the brink of suicide once again (trust me: I HAVE been entertaining those thoughts a lot recently again).
It’s good to go home and to be with family and friends again. What can I say?
