I have a low-paying job I dislike very much. I don’t fit in with my co-workers. I am stuck in a town I don’t want to be in. I want very much to leave but I simply don’t earn enough at the moment to even think of being able to afford relocating. I’m not having any luck at all finding work elsewhere, at the moment. I strongly feel that if I just had a person or people to talk to or spend time with sometimes, I would be less likely to dwell on my unhappiness and likely feel a little better. How can I find and make friends?
The most common way I have seen it happen and how I've done it myself is by looking for activities that you enjoy (be it sports, arts/crafts, movies, music) and finding outlets for them socially. If you like music, find local spots where music you like is played. Look in your local newspaper for low cost classes of things you enjoy, or often times there is a section for clubs or other community events.If you are willing to take the leap, make those clubs yourself or advertise yourself wanting an activity partner.The most important element is to immerse yourself in situations where you are enjoying yourself and feeling comfortable. Once you are doing that, friends with like minds and interests have a way of turning up.
Honestly just look for groups, clubs, or anything that is social within the community and get out and meet new people! Life seem's pretty down in the dumps, but once you find something that will intrigue a passion or give you passion , you will not want to stop. With that you will meet people down the line. Money is a necessity in the world we live in but it does not mean it determines our happiness. If you want to talk go ahead and shoot me a message. We can talk and get to know each other!
