Anxiety about getting a job. I'm so scared and I don't know why. I know soon i have to but was thinking how about now at this moment since someone told me about a job. So i spoke to my fiance and he told me not yet, our son is too small. I don't know what to do really, don't know if im ready.

  • Honey, first of all don't be scared...that anxiety feeling you're having is perfectly "normal" in this situation but fear will only hold you back in life.
    Make a list of the pros and cons of going back to work right now.
    List your alterior options too.
    What are your reasons for wanting to go back to work now and what are your reasons/concerns about staying home.
    Can you afford to stay at home?
    Relax and breathe, things will work out.
    All my support to you!

  • Why do you have to get a job?

    If you guys don't need the extra money, just enjoy being home with your son. You only get this once.
