Re: Should I accept this new role?

You're right, I just need to take a leap.

I'm overthinking it a bit and I supposed there is a bit of fear in this as well.

That said, it has become apparent to me that there is no future in my current role and a shift needs to happen as it is slowly diluting my skill-set. This new role will hopefully allow me to anchor my skill set in a specific area of expertise and allow for a proper progression.

I made a mistake when I left my former role to take my current role, so there is a fear of repeating the same mistake and not being able to rectify it. I'm a bit scarred, I suppose.

Fingers crossed

You are most welcome, LIP.

I don't think it was a mistake to leave your last job. It was a terrible, unworkable situation. The fact this one has problems doesn't mean you made a mistake either. You are finding your way, continuing to adjust and fine-tune your life further.

These things take time; there is no reason for blame. Being scared is appropriate; I would be concerned if you were not.

And you can forward while feeling fear: That is what constitutes courage.
Good cheer to you.
