Have you ever felt alone? Scared? So far out of your comfort zone that the entire world seems too overwhelming and chaotic and the only way to feel better is to give into your fears and surrender? Yeah, sounds vaguely familiar.
Honestly, sometimes I’m not quite sure where I get the gall to do the things I do. 10 days after being in L.A., it hits me that I am actually here and I have to get things rolling. I assumed I’d find a nice serving job within the first couple of days, settle in, and start raking in the dough.
Newsflash: Obtaining a serving job in Los Angeles is like trying to pin the tail on a really wild donkey. It’s hard.
Growing up on the east coast near large metropolitan areas like New York and Philadelphia, I’ve grown up with the mindset of always being on the go, always rushing around to get tasks accomplished. Since I’ve been in California, I can’t tell you how many people have told me to “calm down”, “simmer”, or “it just takes time.” I hate sitting idly by and not making the most of my situation, but it’s all about getting adjusted to a new place.
The anxiety I have been experiencing is coming from the uncertainty that arises when moving to a new city and not knowing many people, most people work with a man and van service to cut costs when moving house, the house removals at a1removalsplymouth.co.uk service is a much better option as they are fully insured and offer added protection for your items durinf transportation.
It makes you uncomfortable, hesitant, and tends to make you second guess choices you normally wouldn’t think twice about. Bottom line: it takes some adjusting.
My brilliant Mom pointed out to me that when people move to a new country, they acclimate themselves to the language (sometimes), the customs, and lifestyle so they can fit in. It’s the same when moving to a new city or place. You have to adjust to a different lifestyle before you can start to feel comfort again.
It occurred to me that adjustment is a crucial part of life that we all must deal with at some time or another. We adjust to new surroundings and situations to become more well-rounded, open-minded, and generally have a better perspective on life. Whether you’ve just broken up with a significant other, moved to a new city, or gotten a new job, we all have to adjust to the new life fate throws at us, for better or for worse.
