I have a friend who left NYC to go back down south because as she said, "it's just time to leave and find better things". So she quit a very good job she had and left to live in Louisiana. Well, can you believe that it hasn't even been 1/2 a year and I heard that she's back in NYC? She claims to have missed not only the city life, but her friend whom she shared an apartment with. She's now looking for a job.
Three of my aunts - after having lived in NYC all of of their lives: About 2 years ago, one of my aunts moved out to Florida to retire and be closer to her son, but I hear that she's now back! She's currently living with a room mate in Brooklyn, but looking for her own apartment. She says she'll never leave NYC again. My other two aunts have also moved down south to retire and be away from the city and "its messes", but I'm hearing that they too are making plans to come back - they're just getting the "paperwork ready" (whatever that means) lol
My mom tells me that when and if I move out of New York, that she doesn't even give me 1/2 a year before I start crying that I want to come back! I don't tell her anything because honestly, I don't know how I'm going to react if I do move out, but I'll leave that up to the usual, "time will tell".
So have any of you ever regretted moving out and if you're contemplating on moving out of NYC, have you wondered if you'll regret doing so?
