Time is always moving forward. Family and job factors are right there at the front of what is needed to take care of. Three is and was the right answer. Just look at that picture. Peace, Love and Joy. And other Good Job.

I try to remind myself that rehashing past decisions can serve a purpose only if you learn something you can apply to furture decisions. If you've already come up with those lessons (if they were even there), it's time to stop obsessing. Forgive yourself/acknowledge (like you're doing) that you did the best you could, and move forward.
It's easy to say but hard to do when you get stuck in a loop of thinking too much.

I know this might not be helpful since you want to let the idea of selling your house go. However, we just bought a house and we had to win a bidding war to get it. The houses for sale inventory is at a 10 year low and interest rates are low and houses are supposed to see a 12% value increase this year. This means that there are waaay more buyers than sellers. In my area, houses are selling fast. Even a house with no dishwasher and a pool that needed to be removed sold in less than 30 days. We didn't buy that one, no dishwasher, yikes!

Again, not helpful for letting go, but the market is competitive for sellers again. Best of luck with whatever you decide!
