Should We Move or Not?


My husband and I have been discussing potentially moving, which is stressful but also a little bit exciting. There are big positives and negatives to consider.

On the plus side, right now we live out in the middle of nowhere and everything is pretty far away. Our doctors, shopping centers, and my husband’s work are longer commutes than either of us like. Due to my anxiety and other issues, my husband has to drive me to many of my doctors’ appointments which means he has to take off work often. If we lived closer to my doctors I could probably take myself. Our internet options are also limited where we live, so we had to settle for satellite internet which is horrible service at a ridiculous price.

The negatives of moving would be that we do like our neighborhood. It is a beautiful, peaceful area out in the country that is well kept and our neighbors have been great so far. The areas we would be moving into would be closer to urban areas and would definitely not be as nice and would have higher crime rates since crime seems to be about zero around here. We also like having more space out here and not having neighbors too close. That would definitely change too.

Tough decisions.

  1. Very tricky decision indeed. I don’t think there’s a ‘right’ choice either, it’s just a case of what’s best for you both at the time, and there’s no way of knowing what it’ll truly be like until you move somewhere new. But there’s no rush, right? Plenty of time to sound out some options and play around with ideas. Good luck, try not to get too stressy with it..xx

  2. A few words of comfort (I hope): Moving is such a big decision because it is life-changing. But my husband loves to point out that if you have two really great options, it doesn’t matter which one you pick. The closer you feel the two choices are to being equally attractive, the more likely it is you will be happy no matter which you choose. That said, the differences in your pros and cons may guide you. It just depends on what you feel is more important. That can change as we grow and age, so you have to go with what you think you will need the most in the next 5 to 10 years…

  3. Life sometimes brings the need for decisions such as moving. You and your husband will thoughtfully weigh the pros and cons.

    I will continue to pray for with a note about your moving decision. May God help guide your way.
