for the life you want?

Do it?

MariafromMalmo Fri 14-Apr-17 21:58:08

Yes! Did it. So so worth it.

MommaGee Fri 14-Apr-17 21:58:12

depends on the sacrifice and what the disparity is between my life now and the life i want

ZilphasHatpin Fri 14-Apr-17 21:58:21

Sacrifice what? How much?

TonySopranosVest Fri 14-Apr-17 21:59:11

Are you talking about prison?

Shortdarkandfeisty Fri 14-Apr-17 21:59:24

It depends on what the sacrifice is and what the pay back is

Sparklingbrook Fri 14-Apr-17 21:59:26

confused

Yes. Four years is no time it will fly by.

Like only human sacrifice, or would a lamb or two suffice? I definitely wouldn't I have carpets in every room and the kitchen is too small.

Sacrifice what?
Your freedom? Probably not.
Buying takeaway coffee? Probably yes

Hellmouth Fri 14-Apr-17 22:01:47

Never I don't think I could even sacrifice the coffee lol

Floggingmolly Fri 14-Apr-17 22:02:16

Four years might not "fly by". Depends on what you're sacrificing? Why don't you say what, op?
Ridiculous question.

So2007 Fri 14-Apr-17 22:02:41

No kids. 38, turning 39.

Sacrifice by working in a field I am "meh" about but doing so may open doors not just for me but most especially for my husband. The possibilities scare and excite me at the same time.

My life now is actually very pleasant. Safe, like a cocoon.

Give us a clue?

NeverTwerkNaked Fri 14-Apr-17 22:03:00

hell after a bad night with Dd I would definitely probably pick prison over going without coffee grin

ImperialBlether Fri 14-Apr-17 22:03:05

I wouldn't leave my kids or work really, really long hours for four years.

dailymailarecunts Fri 14-Apr-17 22:03:40

I thought you wanted me to sacrifice my 4 year old. It's tempting I'll be honest hmmgrin

ZilphasHatpin Fri 14-Apr-17 22:05:26

4 years of working In a meh job for a guaranteed dream life? Yes definitely. But you say it "may" open doors. For "may"? Not a chance. I'd want certainty.

Floggingmolly Fri 14-Apr-17 22:05:55

How exactly will it open doors for your husband?

ZilphasHatpin Fri 14-Apr-17 22:06:10

And what will your DH be sacrificing for these doors you are opening for him?

Shortdarkandfeisty Fri 14-Apr-17 22:06:26

Well if it's something that excites you, opens door for your dh, you have no kids to consider and you're only meh about it, e.g. Not repulsed and it's 4 years (why only 4 years?) then it doesn't seem high risk.

Does it involve moving house or country? What would be the options if you didn't like it?

MovingtoParadise Fri 14-Apr-17 22:06:34

Not if it means going abroad to live in a country with terrible human rights

Or on an oil rig (too cold)
