Dear Brad,
I give you permission to BE overwhelmed for no longer than 5 minutes, and to FEEL overwhelmed for no longer than 10. Life is great, you are surrounded constantly by love, and even though in only 3 short weeks you're leaving the only home you've ever known your entire life, and this is really hard to grapple with - it's all going to be okay. In fact, it's going to be great.

I give you permission to be upset that you're not going to get as much time with people as you want before you leave. It's okay though, because love travels really well.

I give you permission to want to freak out because of all the boxes, all of the clutter, and all of the chaos - just don't actually freak out, you've got way too much to do for all that. It's only 3 weeks - just keep the dishes clean and the laundry done, occasionally sweep the floor, and this time next month everything will be nicely unpacked, organized, and clean in your new home.

NOW CHILL THE FUCK OUT.
Love,
Yourself

Get rid of that last comma, Baby. Put a period at the end.

Better.

It really will be okay. :) As someone who has been practically a gypsy most of her life, I promise you, it'll all be okay. And most times, probably even better than. :D

I've moved so much, people swear at me for wrecking their address books .. when we had real paper ones that was. If I'd stayed in one place most of my life as you have, I know I'd find the idea of leaving difficult too. Overwhelming, yes. Packing up is so much work too, very draining.

Nowhere in US is that far .. anyone (who can afford it) can get in the car or a plane. Saying your goodbyes will be hard yes, but being the great communicator that you are, you'll just be doing it from another place. And yes .. love travels really well.

*hugs*

belive me when i say, you will be a lot better prepared than i was. i moved from the south coast of england to northern scotland. 700 miles north. i was 21 ands the only person i knew was my boyfriend. i didnt have a job to go to either. it takes a while to put down any new roots, at first you may resist doing so, but throwing yourself in to the community will really help. i know you are that kind of guy lol. phone calls home will help both parties, as will pootling around exploring the area with damian when you have time together. its all exciting as well as busy and 'the unknown' but if anyone is equiped, through experience to cope with difficult situations, its you. good luck sweety.. all will be well
