It would be really helpful if I could have some advice on the following situation: My dad unfortunately passed away last year after a short illness. As a result, we (including my mum and brother) are downsizing and looking for somewhere else to live. However, it looks like that it may mean that we are going to be living in the same town where I work at the high school. I know it is stressful for everyone involved, especially my mum, and that we all have our preferences. However, I have numerous worries about living in the same town, including bumping into students/parents and just not being able to properly disconnect from where I work. I just don't know if I can live in the exact same place where I work. I would be happy to hear your opinions on my situation/your thoughts on living in the same community where you work.
