I have lived in three different states since graduating from undergrad (CT, CA and now TX) either for graduate school or work. I have lived here in Dallas for about 1.5 years working in medicine and it just didnt work out. I'm 29 and single now and have not lived back home in AZ for a few years now and I took a wonderful job back home to start in a few weeks. I definitely miss home, family, friends and the activities I love that I cant do here in Dallas (hiking, mountain biking) but I'm starting to have this fear of moving home. I know people and places changes my friends and family are beyond excited to have me back but in some weird way I grew to like Dallas even though I'm not the biggest fan and I'm alone out here. I planned on making Dallas home for a few years but I just felt like going home was the best choice right now. I'm just scared it wont be "home" and I'm so use to living out of state over the years and that moving home is so permanent.

You really haven't been gone that long. Things can't have changed very much. On the other hand, it won't be the same because you've changed.

Nothing stays the same. Even if you had stayed "home" you and others would have gone through changes over time.

Go, enjoy your new job, and before long, it will probably be your "new normal."

How is it permanent? You can certainly move again if you desire to someday.
