Stability for its own sake might be the same thing as stagnation. As much as you like the status quo, you`re getting restless enough to look beyond it. Ask yourself where you`ll be five years from now, and whether it`s where you`ll want to be. If your comfortable routine is starting to look like a hamster wheel, step off to survey the options. Well-meaning friends question your motives at the wrong time. This decision is purely personal. Follow your best course of action even if that means taking it alone. This is about principle, not convenience.
