@reena, ah. These situations can be tough. I had a hard time making friends in college for this very reason. But you have to put yourself out there a little bit. Are there certain hobbies you like to do or places you like to go? You might meet friends there. I had a buddy who moved to Seattle all on his own – he went through the same thing you went through for about 6 months or so, but then eventually he found a group of friends to hang out with and now he lives with them. It’s only been two weeks for you, if I were in your shoes, or could do it all over again, I’d give it a little more time. Maybe take up a new hobby and meet people that way. And just because you would have new friends in NYC doesn’t mean you can’t talk to your home friends anymore. It’s up to you to maintain the line of communication.

The only other choice besides making it work, is to go home. Which isn’t necessarily a wrong choice, either. It sounds like you’re close with your friends, much like I was at that time and still am. It’s up to you, and there’s no wrong choices. Just help yourself by considering all the pros and cons, and giving the new place a fair chance. Otherwise you may feel regret at missing out!

That’s not a very long time to be away, but going out on your own is daunting. That sounds like an amazing internship! Just be confident and yourself, and you will be sure to make some friends in NY soon enough. You can still have fun with your friends, you guys can skype and visit each other! Who knows maybe some of your friends will visit, fall in love with NY then want to come live there too!

Be positive! <3

@reena, Exalt yourself

@reena, You know what ‘exalt’ means, don’t you?

You are supreme, you run your life, you are omnipotent unto you.
