4 Points To Help You Decide Whether It’s Time To Relocate

I abhor moving. Absolutely detest it. If there were a list of the absolute most horrid things a person might have to do, moving is high up on that list for me. Yes, that much. I'm so happy I own my house so I don't have to move. But sometimes moving is a necessity. Sometimes not just moving houses but locations. Sometimes where you live just isn't right for you anymore. But how do you make the decision? Here are some points from a reader to help you decide.

This planet is huge and full of so many different opportunities. Whether we’re talking about professional life, recreational life, or personal life, Earth can give us so many different options. Plenty of people will want to stay in the same place every single day for the rest of their lives. For whatever reason, the idea of moving around just doesn’t seem attractive at all. That’s fine, of course, but humans are meant to travel around – it’s in our nature.

When you get the itch to move abroad or to a place hundreds of miles away, it can be easy to doubt whether it’s a good idea. The brain likes to play tricks on us, doesn’t it? If you’re in this predicament right now, then perhaps these four thoughts can help you out a little and make the answer a little clearer:

Is Freshness Absolutely Necessary At This Point?

People like to move away from where they are because they’re simply sick and tired of the predicament they’re in. They hate seeing the same stuff every single day and the same job just isn’t cutting it anymore. If you have reached the point of burnout, then it’s wise to consider moving because your mental state needs variety. You don’t deserve the same unfulfilling life for decades. Of course, moving may not be the only option; there might be less costly ways to take care of your burnout, and moving may not solve your burnout issues if they aren't location based. Consider whether your location is lacking things you need that your new location may have which can help your burnout.

Do You Know All Of The Formalities And Fine Details?

If you’re fully aware of the details regarding a move away, then that might be enough to back up a decision to relocate. Some people stay put because they don’t know the first thing about moving. If you had to apply for your Irish passport and go through a bunch of tedious processes in order to do a simple task, then you would be forgiven for not having a clue about how it all works. Knowledge is power and it gives you the confidence to go through all kinds of things. If you know what you’re doing, then it can help you decide what your next steps are.

Is There A Special Someone Overseas?

Love makes a human being jump at the chance to do anything. When we want someone, we’ll run to them – even if they’re hundreds of miles away. If you’re dealing with a foreign love that you met overseas, then that can be enough to force a decision. You just have to check if you’re being a little too hasty, of course.

Is The Offer Just Too Good To Turn Down?

If you’ve been offered a new home or a new job with very few reasons not to take it, then perhaps that’s the universe letting you know what to do. Obviously, it’s wise to weigh up the genuine pros and cons, but sometimes the answer screams out your name. If everything you have right now pales in comparison to what’s ahead of you, then moving will always be the right answer. Typically, your brain will think of negative reasons, but taking the plunge seemingly always produces the right results. Very rarely is the grass not greener on the other side.
