Leaving town is a big step to take. Have you tried joining a social group, sporting team, etc that you have an interest in. Becoming part of a group where everyone has a common goal, outlook or are simply trying to find like-minded people is a good way to ensure you have something mutually in common with them and it is the first building block of a new relationship. Whether it turns into an intimate relationship or not, you have certainly made yourself a very good, new friend. A friend that will understand things you may go through or just a friend that is willing to listen with no judgement.

It is very normal to feel this way. Sometimes life gets the best of us we feel so overwhelmed with everything around us that we don't want to take part in anything anymore. Don't feel guilty about it. Take some time off. Go somewhere new even if it's just for a few days. Unwind when you are there, relax and think of what exactly is going through your mind. What is making you feel uncomfortable at the moment. What is it that you really need at that moment where you are. Leaving your friends behind doesn't mean you don't care about them but sometimes you need time alone to think over things which are heavy in mind and understand why you feel that way. By the time you are done with your break you shall have answers to everything you seek, it's always within us. You will come back feeling rejuvenated and glad you took some time off to just cool your mind and sort your thoughts out.

I'm sorry to hear you're feeling lonely. Although many people feel loneliness at time, we all experience this uniquely and for different reasons which can make it even more difficult to understand. First let me say that your step to reach out and find support is so important and I'm proud of you for doing so. Just as we all feel loneliness uniquely, we cope with it in our own ways as well. In your own journey to work through these feelings, self-reflection might be a great first step. Try asking yourself, when did I start feeling this way? Were there any other changes in my life happening when these feelings began? Is there someone with whom I could share these feelings, like a family member or a friend? If you think you may need to speak with someone while you work through these questions and feelings, remember that 7 Cups listeners are always here for you in live chat.
