I’ve been dreaming of bridging the distance gap with the SO and the only thing that’s been holding me back is my job. I love my job. I love my boss, H. I’ve dreaded leaving H behind because she has come to depend heavily on me in the last year and half, and we make a bitchin’ team. I guess I felt like I was going to be abandoning her. So I’ve been sitting on this dream and passively watching the world turn.
Today the CEO announced she hired a new member to the team. He will be H’s new partner in crime, and I’m being moved to another team with two other managers. By the end of that meeting with the CEO, I was ready to tell her.
L, I love it here but you just inadvertently made a very hard decision for me. I will be moving to California as soon as March and as late as June.
I said it. It was great. A huge weight was lifted off my shoulders and I don’t feel like I’m abandoning anyone anymore because apparently my perception of the world means shit.
Happy November, and a happy close to the month of thanks series. Cheers, y’all.
