Listen to advice, but follow your heart. – Conway Twitty
Dear Ms. Emily,
I am conflicted. I have lived for some time now in Adelaide and have settled down quite nicely. However, I have recently bagged a great job in Melbourne in a once in a lifetime opportunity. My wife is pregnant with our first child and our baby is due almost at the same time we are supposed to move to Melbourne, so the stress of moving to another city, having my first child and taking on a new job all at the same time, is really high. I have a good job here in Adelaide but our hearts (my wife and I) are quite set on Melbourne. My dilemma is – should we stay in Adelaide or move to Melbourne? – Conflicted First Time Dad
Dear Conflicted First Time Dad,
It seems to me that the answer to your dilemma is already clear to you.
Here are some questions that could help you make the correct decision for you and your family:
- How does your wife feel about the move to Melbourne? Are you in agreement as to what is best for your little family?
- Are you up to managing all the details moving will entail – leaving the old job and accommodations, transferring medical records, finding suitable new lodgings, taking on a new job? Do you have the strength to carry this through?
- And most importantly, what does your heart say?
Ultimately, the best advice is the one your heart tells you.
Hope this helped.
