If worklife is the problem or if you think your marriage is comfortable but stale, do not walk out on either without first considering where you are heading and how you will survive. Equally important, consider first the repercussions. These can be financial, destructive and not least of all, hurtful to people around you. Move slowly. Do not cause irreparable damage to other people’s lives.
This is a time when commonsense must dictate what can or cannot be done and most men, it seems, find all it takes to make their lives more acceptable is a simple adjustment. Wild moves while full of drama and charged with theatrical gesture rarely lead anywhere and are more likely to prove destructive rather than constructive. You may hate yourself for working behind a desk in a city office, for instance, and dream of running a puppy farm in a cosy, flower-covered village but how practical in real terms is this kind of dream even if you love dogs? Feeling restless is not reason enough for packing your bags, abandoning your family and putting the dog in the back of the car. You have to do your homework first and be maturely responsible. Consider what you already have and evaluate what is favourable and what is not. Take stock. Many things must be right. Wife? Lover? Home? Money? Work? Career? Capitalize on what is right. Be circumspect.
