so, I’m starting college,in a different city and alone. I know that’s what most of the people do and it’s hard at the beginning and I’ll have friends soon and all that stuff, but I just want to cry ang go back home. I miss my friends and my family but worst of all I feel lonely. Can I do something to remove this feelings?
It's ok to feel sad , it's a part of transition. You aren't supposed to be all happy in the first day. I'm currently in college so I know what I'm saying.
Now what you can do: try to visit the campus! Go around it, go to the library, try to stop by a coffee shop and buy something.. so you can see what your college looks like and maybe you can meet some people :)
Trust me, in freshmen year people are DYING to meet other people, so trust me when I say that they'll be open to talk to you. So go ahead, explore, talk to people and have fun!
I promise you that you'll start adjusting bit by bit :)
And if you ever need someone to talk to about this, you can PM me
First of all, transitions are really hard to face and adding that you're going to be in another place taking it alone. The best thing for you to lighten the pressure (you cannot totally remove it) is make yourself busy such as exploring the city, knowing the stores or establishments that will be helpful for you in the future. And if you've started going school, talk to one of your classmates though it will be silly at first but gradually you'll be having a buddy as you discover things in campus and then the loneliness you feel will lessen until you've realized you're used to the new environment you have. :)
Good luck to your endeavors and stay positive!
Firstly, the feelings you're experiencing is normal. It's going to be hard but it's not the end of the world! You took a big step by being in college which is amazing now you have to learn how to socialize with new people. Make small talk. Ask them where their from and what their taking up in school. Tell them about how you miss home and ask them for advice. I bet you will get new friends pretty quickly. Good luck! :)
Be sure to embrace those feelings and not push them away. Pushing them away/running way from them only makes them worse in the long run. All feelings are temporary, they will pass and they usually will be balanced, just knowing that keeps me calm.
