  1. I love this. I really identify so much with your post and now I find out you do the same job I do! Love reading it. 🙂 Inspiring.

    I’m not a teacher. But from what I know thru hindsight I think it can be pretty good career as careers go. Wishing my son might get into it.

    This really moved me. Beautiful and though I’m not a teacher, I so relate to struggling to find acceptance and peace. It’s less about the choices you made and more about the agreement you thought you had when you made them…or at least that’s my interpretation and how I feel about my life with my ex. I love reading your posts.

  4. I can relate to this as i gave up my own career to manager our business. I never resented doing this when it was for ‘us. Now I am stuck with a business I do not particularly want, debt, and my own lost career, long forgotten.

    My thought is that you are still very young. It is not too late to change your career, if you want, and to really really do what you are happy with. I know that it would be difficult at this stage when the debt is still there….but maybe ‘one day’. I have known people to get degrees or change careers when their children finally leave home at the age of 50, or even 60. I intend to do that in four years time (and I am 59). It is my dream and this is giving me something to look forward to.

    Maybe, maybe it is something for you in 5 or 10 years… its never too late.
