*Warning - self absorbed rant follows* I am feeling highly frustrated by the way my life is going at the moment. I fully concede that I have nothing substantial to complain about, I am not ill, I have two healthy and supportive parents, I do a job I enjoy and I am married to a man I love and who loves me. However, recently I have started to feel frustrated by the way my life is going. If I had been asked to predict how my life would be by my mid thirties I would have predicted something very different to my current life! Part of this is through my own choice (such as not going for promotion because I decided I wanted to remain a classroom teacher rather than taking a leadership role with less teaching) and part of this is not my own choice, but beyond my control (such as having fertility difficulties which means we have no children). Increasingly though I feel as though my life is on hold. I have been married for four years and nothing has changed in that time. My husband and I talk of future plans, but in a vague unsubstantial way. I look at houses we could move to, but without any intention of doing so. I want something to change, but seem incapable of making this happen. My frustrations bubbled over today when I burst into tears because I car I had been thinking of buying had been sold - how ridiculous! It just seemed symptomatic of this state of paralysis my life is suffering. Typing this now I can feel myself getting tearful again. OVER A CAR! I have just enough self awareness to know I am being ridiculous, but still feel so frustrated. Does anyone have any suggestions for seizing control of one's life back?
