Long time since I wrote, lots has happened, mostly bad stuff

Leaving willys, its been coming, but its still not nice to have it happened as it did (explanation later maybe) I guess this leaves me open for a new start (again) but here in lies the problem.

The problem is now, that I don't know where my new start is going to be. It seems increasingly likely that my new start isn't going to be in Halmstad, as the person I'm trying to hold on to, is planning to leave anyways. And due to my refusal to do long-distance relationships, I don't see a light at the end of that tunnel right now. I hope I'm wrong, I sincerely do, but right now in the state of mind I find myself, I don't see it.

Even with that, thats not to mention the fact my arbetstillstånd (work permit) is up for review, and being jobless, it looks 50/50 that it will be extended. So everything is waiting on them to come to a decision on what they plan to do.

So what to do? What are my options? Well there are several, although some appear more likely than others.

1) Work permit approved/denied, but leave, return to New Zealand, marry, and live out my life, just like my parents

2) Work permit approved, stay, and continue to fight to survive.

3) Work permit approved/denied, head to the UK, and work there.

4) work permit denied,  travel around Europe until its time to go home, and then go home, poor.

I know that if I end up going home, I think I will give up on the dreams I once had when I came to Europe, even though now they seem further away from reality than when they did when I arrived. It's never easy giving up your dreams, and thats something I'm going to have to come to terms with, no matter what my decision. Right now  it feels like concentrating on surviving, no matter where I am, is the order of the day.

Although people are trying, I'm left feeling isolated now, and no matter where I go, I will always have that feeling, because its a self-imposed isolation. The ability to trust in others is eroding away, and maybe soon it will be gone. It hurts more when I know I'm dragging other people down with me, and I know full well they don't deserve that.

So what to do now? Only time will tell, inside right now I feel completely sad and I hate being on my own, because it leaves me to my thoughts, which can be very tormenting at the worst of times. I don't know what to say or do anymore that will fix these issues, I have searched for help and came away from it feeling less good than when I started.

No one wants to listen, so I will write it here, and the blog will read.
