I hate moving.
- In fact, the entire process gives me anxiety – all the packing, the labeling, and then unpacking drive me nuts.
I get overwhelmed by all of it. Now, I must admit that I do like to purge, but at times, I find it hard to let go of certain things that I haven’t used or worn in over two years. Telling myself that I was saving them for one reason or another. I feel better after I let go because it removes the clutter from my home, and the less clutter, the less stuff I have to pack. Recently, I took a job in a new city, and I had to completely relocate. During that process, I tried to find an apartment to rent, but I couldn’t find one that I liked. In addition, I had no family or friends in the area, so there was no one to ask for help. My only saving grace was that my new company was able to find corporate housing with a month to month lease. The place was fully furnished, and it was super close to my job. It had a full-size kitchen and a washer and dryer inside the apartment. This is way better than living in a hotel, and it was cheaper than renting or staying in an Airbnb. This corporate apartment felt like home away from home, so it made the relocation process a bit easier. It also delayed the unpacking because the apartment had everything I needed. I wish I could stay in this corporate rental longer, but I have been looking at nearby apartments for rent, and I will soon sign a new lease.
