I can already tell that I’m going to miss the great selection of restaurants in Los Angeles and the surprising walkability of my former neighborhood, but I’m managing to stay focused on the core reasons I made the move, and stuff like this reminds me:
Already a couple of people have said to me, “You left Los Angeles for here?” But on another forum I saw someone reply to a similar inquiry with, “L.A. is not what it seems.”
I do also miss my yoga and dance teachers, but that’s kind-of a sad commentary if those were some of my primary relationships. I feel like I failed to find a new career field, a committed romantic relationship, and a core social group. I loved the weather and the restaurants and all the stuff to do, but I don’t think that’s enough for a fulfilling life.
