I've been out on my own since I was 15. I consider myself extremely independent and someone who enjoys some alone time. I have wonderful friends and family but never realized how fortunate I was to have them so close to me until now. A week ago, I packed my bags and made the 8 hour ride to Northern California where I will be starting a new job. I'm fresh out of graduate school so I am eager and hopeful that this move will be a good step towards my career. I decided to move up North a week before starting my job so I can settle in and become familiar with the area. It's only been four days and I've cried myself to sleep every night and feeling horrible each morning. I don't know how to fill my days, mostly because the little money I have left is for gas. I've never felt this lonely before. A familiar face is no longer a couple minutes away from my place. I have no friends or family here...I don't know anyone or anything. I'm beginning to doubt if this move was the right decision. I'm even more scared that I have no one to depend on. How can I give myself hope that things will get better?
