Help! I'm turning 35 on Monday, and I'm not ready!! I can't believe how time has flown. It seems like yesterday I was 29 without a care in the world and all of a sudden I'm turning 35! All of my friends are married and or have kids etc. and have moved on with their lives and I've been left in the dust!
To make matters worse almost 9 yrs ago I fell into a job that I said was only temporary and I'm still there! But wait, it gets worse, 2 yrs ago I was forced on a leave and have been battling to get back to work (I'm still an employee, but they wont let me back to work). Everyone thinks it's great to be off work, trust me after a while it's not. The problem is if I take another job while off I'll lose all my benefits and my case (grievance). I'm not even sure yet what else I would pursue. I just want to move on with my life and don't know what to do next! I feel like I had more direction when I was younger! And man things were a heck of a lot more fun too!
Also, I finally found a great relationship, after years of mistakes, but I think my relationship is also stuck as a result of the rest of my life being stuck.
Well, thanks for listening and for any advice./.
