Good luck with your move back home! Think of it this way: You'll probably appreciate home even more now that you were away for a while. Hope everything works out for you and your family!

You've uprooted yourselves from Long Island and bought your dream home in Raleigh... yet after only 7 months, you've changed your mind about the whole thing?

I swear that I do not mean this as any sort of an insult, but you sound like you are...just...a...tiny...bit...flighty.

I think this is a first. Nobody ever posts about coming here and then leaving. I think 99% of everyone who moves here, loves it! Perhaps you should give it some more time. Most places take about 2-years to truly call it home.

Default Thinking this is not for real.

Look at the how the original post was written. Something tells me that this is not a real situation, but just something to draw a reaction.

The right reply, IMO.

OCEANSEA,
I agree with lovemaine.
Hope you get a sale and a quick move home.

Every place isn't for everybody.

It's not the place, it's what's inside that makes the difference. Is the glass half empty, or half full? Every place can be good, if you choose to make it so.

This would be false. There are plenty of terrible cities and places to live.

Good point, if obliquely made, nodding to freedom of choice.
The OP has that freedom.

If there are not other constraints keeping them here, should we assume that the benefits of our fine area override their reasonable desires?

I think that would be presumptuous of any of us.

I met folks who came to town for 10 months, were as fine a family as you could meet, and within that period of time realized they had made a mistake.
They could have pestered the world with negativity, but just made the decision to move again to where they had been content for many years. No recriminations, just freedom of choice...
Works for me.
