In the past, I had to move to a different state (state 2) to find work when I experienced long term unemployment where I'm currently at (state 1). Last time in state 1, before moving to state 2, I applied online & on my two feet, while networking and being involved with unemployment agencies and career services. Among all the mock interviews and enhancing my resume, I remained unemployed. I had creditors calling me and dinging my credit constantly. The issue became too much to handle that I gave up, packed and moved to state 2, where I was hired only a week and a half upon arriving. I stayed and worked in state 2 until I experienced a car accident in a return visit to state 1, that was meant to be only a short stay for paperwork. I decided to stay in state 1 so that I could be close to people I knew, instead of being extremely cautious of being alone. I eventually got a job in state 1 with the work reference from state 2. The work experience in state 1 was terrible, that I didn't last beyond 2.5 months. Now, I'm facing frustration in state 1 that I'm not hearing from another job that I applied for. When venting my frustrations, my guy said that I must try harder, and keep applying at more places. My response was that I've been through this before, which landed me in long term unemployment. I said that I just can't thrive in this.area (state 1). Now, because of my bad experiences, I spend more time contemplating my move back to state 2, than to find a job in state 1.
Q; Being as much debt that I'm in (that I returned in a better financial standing with one debt paid), how can I explain this issue that if I don't move, that money troubles are going to destroy my relationship to my guy anyway? And, getting hired and the job experience is much better in state 2? ( that jobs are much more accommodating)?
Thanks in advance
