There have been several ex monks living around here over the past few years.
Earning a living can be a problem, especially if they've been a monk for a long time as it doesn't really do much for your cv.
Some are teaching meditation, some trying to earn a living doing so, others finding what work they have the skills to do handyman work etc.
Most have relationships.
“Peace is within oneself to be found in the same place as agitation and suffering. It is not found in a forest or on a hilltop, nor is it given by a teacher. Where you experience suffering, you can also find freedom from suffering. Trying to run away from suffering is actually to run toward it.” ― Ajahn Chah
