I wish i could go home

I love the city i moved to but it is not the place where i want to spend the rest of my life. it's not even the place where i want to spend the next few years. i never thought i would say this but i miss the midwest.

it's not that i don't want to experience new things and places. i love to travel and push myself out of my comfort zone. but i long to have a familiar, comfortable place to return home to. and this is not familiar, this is not comfortable. i thought i would be happy here, but i am not. i feel adrift, i feel like i don't have a home. i need to move back east.

  • Nothing says you have to stay anywhere for a long time, and even if you move back and find you don't like it..move again. But before you totally give up on your new digs. Try to put forth the effort to make some really good friends. Ask coworkers to lunch etc. Look at meetup.com, take a class, sign up for a sport..anywhere where you can meet some peeps that you can relate to. It may be difficult, because people are busy and flaky! But don't give up. The places we choose to live are great, but it's the people that enrich our experiences. One other thing to consider..nothing can beat living close to your home and your family. But be prepared that you may have expectations that may not be met should you move back. Take a closer look as to what's troubling you or missing in your new place/life, because sometimes the problems follow us wherever we go.
