The thought of freeing myself from an old system and welcoming my new career is like welcoming a new bright beginning of my monotonous life.

Having a new career is great because of the new experience to acquire as well as the remuneration.
I agree. Leaving someone because of a new career must be an arrangement between the two parties. Career must not be a hindrance to a successful relationship.

Meeting new people, getting out of a routine and I'd definitely look forward to changing my surroundings. Working in a new space, with new people and new tasks would be challenging, but (I hope) also enjoyable.

I changed my career once--to go into a company that relates to food, which has always interested me.

I'm certainly excited when I can look at what I'm doing now and imagine it in the future -- the growth it's gone through and the response I've received from it. If the future doesn't look good for what I'm working on, I just don't feel like doing it!

I have worked at five different places within my career and the thing I am always most excited about is building new relationships with children and watching them grow and change throughout their time with me. It is such a wonderful things to see children figure something out, or get better at skills and want to show that off! I get to watch not only my students do so, but also my son and it is the most rewarding aspect of my job!

Having a new career gives you the opportunity for starting over again and leaving some past situations behind. That's what I find exciting about it.
If apart from that, that new career makes you learn and get familiar with new concepts, it is even better.

The possibilities that the new career opens up. For instance, if you get a job in a different country and you have never travelled before, you are going to be excited to see the people in that country, learn their culture, eat their food, walk on their beaches, see their animals, enjoy their air, ride their bicycles. But then after the thrill wears off, and homesickness sets in, you might decide to change career paths again and come back home.
A ship is safe in the harbor but that's not what ships are for. So be the person outside the box, get out of your comfort zone, that's the person you want to be.

I new career isn't bad but it shouldn't victimize a hard earned relationship. There are many thinks that emerge in life; if it means ending relationships to accommodate them the it would be too unfortunate.
