I worked as consultant until last Thursday. I had a horrible time at that company as they doubted my ability and even got me checked to see if I had a learning disability. I did not but one of my managers was sure that I did.
My job was at risk and my career. So I found another job that requires a 90 minute commute (each way). At first I cheered a sigh of relief. This is a good and well paid job, and the distance did not seem a problem at all. I've done long commutes before. However, now with just one whole day before I start I am freaking out about the commute. It has made me miserable, and despite my wife's best intentions I cannot see the bright side.
So now I wonder will I ever be happy? I have a beautiful son, loving wife, great home, and good job. So the extra half hour of commuting each way, should be seen as a small sacrifice. Afterall, it's not forever. After three years I could try and find something closer. But I am so scared of this change, so worried about the miles, time away from home, fuel cost, and the wear and tare on the car that I cannot appreciate any of my life.
What should I do? Please someone help.
