Fear has no Part in the Decision Making Process
During this whole process, I was scared. Terrified, really. I want, and need, stability. This went against everything I have learned in my life.
But it was necessary. I went back to my old company for a visit a few weeks ago. It was nice to know I'm still wanted there, that people remembered me, but I remember one comment in particular--one of my former co-workers said she'd never seen me so happy.
While there are things that must be considered (such as finances or medical needs) get rid of the fear. If you're not doing something because you're afraid, it's the wrong reason. Every time.
