I know how you feel man.
I am 21 years old and living in my 7th place. My dads job had us moving alot.
How old are you? Are you in school? Distance to family/friends? Area of work/country?
Having moved all these time I wish i could give you a magic answer, but there is no overnight remedy. Like where i am living now, i been here almost 2
months, and pretty much the only people that ive met were my neighbors on the first day i came here, but the 6 of us all have gotten along pretty
good. This is by far the easist time ive had adapting, albit i still only know a handfull of people.
I know the feeling you are talking about. you'll just be hanging out at some party or something, and then it just creeps up on you, and overwhelming
sense of sadness and selfpity, crossed with lonliness and regection, with and overtone of 'What the (blank) am i doing here' as you look around and
hear about 20 conversations at once, you cant help but get the feeling that you are deadly alone, a sore thumb that sticks out.
If the people you hang with get you down, or just have absolutly nothing in common, then you won't be missing much if you just stop hanging with
The world is in a shift right now, people are abaonding the face to face soicial networking, and entering the world of the digital network, where
everyone is looking for anonoymous sex, or are so paranoid out of thier minds they won't participate in the online networks. Seems the only face to
face social events are for getting drunk.
Some days i just dont see a point to leave the house, there is nothing out there to do... and if the one phone call goes bad, what to do?
The thing is, you need to put your self out there, even a little bit at a time. Just start driving/walking around the town, and see if there is
something that catches your eye, something that draws you in. At least this way you will be near people that think similar to you.
To quote Yoda:
"No try, just do"
Basicly, dont over think it, dont think of the situation from every and, and dont overthink the situation, as a guy, this is my downfall, taking
small, sometimes nonexist events and connecting them into some horrible nightmare that is now so far from what is, that you are only polouting your
mind with the thoughts.
Also, just give you friends back home a call, that always helps, hours can melt away when talking with a friend that you havent spoke with in a while.
You will feel rejuvinated, and that you can take on anything, and have no fear.
This is what i can offer, just to help a little, from my years or so of this similar situation, or the course of many trails.
