I'm new to the Atlanta area and very lonely. I moved to GA from MI due to a job loss (automotive industry) that forced me to search for work elsewhere. I know few people and am feeling a fear that I never experienced before in this new place. I think alot of it has to do with my frame of mind about searching for work and running up against so many obsticals (I'm disappointed to be here and facing a fairly high unemployment rate which I didn't expect to happen) now that I'm down here. I left everything I know and love back in MI and just don't know how to go about making new friends. I've thought about joining a couple of "special interest" groups and singles clubs to help me, but am scared to death to meet new people. Sometimes I feel as if I'm someone I don't know, a different person who is totally the opposite of who I once was (I was the social butterfly where I worked, bringing sunshine to each work day, was well-liked and popular back in Michigan). Does anyone else out there feel this way, like they've totally lost the essence of who they are? Has someone been this way and learned how to get their "old self" back? Any advice would be appreciated... B.
