thornz Posted September 17, 2017 Share Posted September 17, 2017 So I pulled my finger out and got myself a social life, literally overnight. Moved to a new town three weeks ago and have gone from having a very limited, boring, lonely life to being out every evening after work and cramming as much into a weekend as I can. Right now I am loving life, in fact I'm in ecstasy, however my newfound exciting lifestyle is leaving me struggling to focus at work. I get on fantastic with the guys at work, in fact probably too well, we spend too much time joking and chatting and even when I put on music in my earphones I can't switch from fun mode to work mode. The last fortnight (worked here 2 months) I have been very distracted. I've also got a massive, ridiculous crush on a work colleague I have to work closely with so can't avoid. I actually look forward to seeing him on a workday, and I'm finding myself distracted in his presence, they moved him across the office so he is only a few feet away from me now and he has started commenting in our discussions. I find myself fantasising about him or about events I will be doing later that day/week. I'm loving my new life but I also very much love my new job and being able to pay my bills lol. I want to refocus and be able to live my life to the fullest without jeapardising my career. How can I do that? How can I relax at work and between social activities so I don't burn myself out. I'm also struggling to sleep properly for the first time in a few years. Perhaps I'm having a manic episode? Link to comment
