I Am Miserable
Hi all, I need a little encouragement.
I had my daughter very young and for the last 4 years we have lived in the same city, and very close to my parents. During this time I was working full time etc. I recently got engaged and my fiance and I moved about an hour and a half away to be close to his new job. We bought a nice home and I am not able to work part time.
The problem (and I feel dumb using that word) is that I am miserable here. I miss my family, I don't know anyone in the city, don't know how to meet people in a new city, don't know where I'm going etc. I've tried to get out and explore the city but it's such a small city there is nothing to do (the city I moved from was much larger).
I am so miserable and I don't want to be. We were on vacation last week with my parents and I was super happy, relaxed, had a blast. Then I realized as soon as we got back "home" to the new city I'm back to miserable and crying. We've joined a gym, gotten involved in a few activities and I'm trying to make the best of it but I am so miserable.
Any advice/recommendations for making the move easier?
