Thanks for your replies, Oranged and getting by.
With my situation, I feel like I am either devastated or I did the right thing by getting out of my place. There's not a lot of inbetween, oh, I did pretty good.
I am a total failure or a total success.
I did prevail, in a way Karen, by learning further what the problem is, and how better to protect myself in my house, and, how I could leave my at certain times of the day or night, and some of the times stay here.
All are options but all have drawbacks.
Yes, Oranged, as you said, "Maybe just knowing that you have a safe place that you could go to, in a way, might be part of your problem solving or decision making."
That does help, knowing I have an out or escape. I know if a situation gets too tough, I have a place to go. And rem. a few nights ago when I did not leave my place, I paid a price for it, and it could have been worse than it was.
So put those two together, escape place and bad experience by not escaping, offers a solution right there: bail. Get it right this time.
Oranged, you also said, "Maybe you were 'testing' yourself without knowing it and you prevailed ?"
That could be true also. I was testing myself in a way, but I don't like to test myself in such a delicate area. But I was thinking, maybe just stay here and try to protect yourself.
I did a pretty good job of protecting myself, and of testing my "reasoning" abilities, my thinking. I did pretty good, and I did find that there was room for improvement in my thinking and what actions/improvements I should take.
Valuable tools to bring with me the next time I have a problem, as I've read somewhere about
Yesterday when I came home from my walk with my dog, I saw a moving van in front of the bad house. Good sign, hopefully excellent.
Last night, however, I saw lights which said he was still there.
Don't know what to make of all of that, but it is a good sign. Either, someone bad is moving out, or someone new is moving in. Whatever it is, a moving van has to be a welcome sight.
Didn't see the moving van today, so I'm not sure what the deal is.
Yesterday, took about
5 different detours trying to avoid bad neighbors, and ran into a gray area neighbor, trying to avoid the other neighbors.
Today to avoid that, I walked my dog on the same street, but earlier in the day to avoid the bad neighbors, who are all at work. Hello! My positiveness is the only thing that helped me out yesterday, and for the past 8 years.
If this guy moves, I'll basically be down to zero actively bad neighbors.
