I have had a really bad time of it recently, with some deaths in the family and a particularly bad break up, and I'm just looking for some advice really.
This summer, I had applied for a job as a holiday rep, and got through to the last stage, but said relationship had a big effect on me and I chose to mess up my training in order to stay in the country, for what I thought was 'love'. Shame it didn't turn out that way, and after numerous problems and fights, we have decided to call it a day.
Now, I am upset that I wasted my chance to do something I had always dreamed about, and I can't get my chance back (with this particular company), I tried.
I have applied for a different company and got through to the interview stage, but I am worried that I am just trying to escape my problems instead of dealing with them.
Do you think I should leave it for this year, and maybe have some sort of counselling to overcome my problems?
The only worry I have is that I will go, and be homesick and this will make it worse.
But last summer when I came home from Uni for the holidays I suffered from depression (bored all day, no friends at home), so maybe this could be the one thing I really need?
I'm very confused, please help!

hey hun. I knows how things can affect day to day life and make it seem impossible. I think if you got through the final interview you should def go for it!! It will be the best therapy in the world.
You need to understand that you can survive!!!!!!!!
Please please if you get the job go- these chances dont come very often and dont count on it that if you decline it again that you will be able to apply nxt yr .
Go and experience it.
Wishin u all the best, and big big big big big lillybut hugs xxx

By all means have counselling if you feel you need it. I think going away for a while is a great idea, I'm a firm believer in a change of scenery when life starts to get you down. It gives you time away from the situation to have a think about things without the problems constantly being in your face.
So if you get the chance...go

I think going would be an excellent idea. Especially so if you will be occupied and not have loads of time alone; being in a foreign environment can be quite alienating if you aren't with others. To be honest though, as a holiday rep I am sure you will meet lots of people and have a great time. I don't think its running away from problems so much as accepting that sad things have happened but that you cannot spend your life dwelling on them. I hope you get the placement! Hope things cheer up a bit for you. G'luck!
