Can’t make decision despite doing istikhaara for months

Assalamualaikum, I have been doing istikhaara for many months regarding an important career decision to go to another Muslim country. The circumstances didn’t allow me to go along what my heart wishes (as I wanted to go) so I knew this is the sign from Allah but at the same time, I remained highly unsatisfied with choice I made and really it depressed me a lot. I am continuing istikhaara again for months now and not sure what to do as it is effecting my and my family’s mental health with respect to not making mind where we want to settle. I’m not sure how to deal with situation. JazakAllah khair for your advice.
