Rough Patches

Its been a while so hey everyone on reachout, and thankyou for being here when I need it. Its tough because I feel like everytime I start to get happy something happens to pull me back down. I found out last night that i'm loosing my license for 3 months because of some stupid fine, but because I don't have my full license I barely get any points. 

I know this may be small to some but loosing it has huge repercussions on my life, I really need it for work and daily life in general. Its put my in such a foul mood and even tho i've tried hard to be positive I cant get out of this 'funk'.

Re: Rough Patches

Hey @Mstar123, welcome back to RO! I'm sorry to hear that you'll be losing your licence for 3 months, I can imagine how much losing your licence would have a negative impact such that it would cause it to get stuck in this 'funk' Smiley Sad. What other alternative transport options have you considered you could use for the time being? Public transport? Catching a lift with someone you know?
Hope is just around the corner; you think it's not there when you first look straight ahead, but it actually is when you turn around

Re: Rough Patches

Heya @Mstar123, welcome back! i can't imagine how much it must suck to lose your license. I can totally see how this is a big deal for you as I really value having my license after getting it later in adulthood. @Esperanza67 has asked some really important questions.. I am wondering if you have still been able to do things you enjoy throughout this 'funk'?

Re: Rough Patches

Luckily I will be away for 3 weeks during the 3 months, so at least its only like 2 months. I will have to get busses and trains, my parents also both said they will drive me around alot. And my best friend. Still so frustrating especially since I recently bought a car and that means like 3 months of rego is wasted.

Hi @Mstar123


Sucks to hear that. I bet it must be hard with something being so essential to your daily work being taken away. 


Sometimes the best option isn't to get out of the funk as soon as possible. I'm not saying you should stay in the dark place but it is a time where you can reflect. In time you'll slowly but automatically get out of the funk after you have gotten use to the new routine.


It sounds like you have a plan in regards to what you will do without your car which is great to see. Other than that, pretty much the only thing left to do is to learn from your mistakes and try not to do it again in the future.
