You had high
hopes when you first thought about moving
to a new city. You thought you will be happy there and you can start a new
life with the people you love. Unfortunately, you didn’t feel that way upon
arrival. It felt terrible and you have a hard time adjusting with the
environment. These are the things to do if you’re unhappy with your new home.
Give it more
It’s natural for
you to feel that way with your new community. You’re still adjusting and you
miss your old home. You don’t know the people around you and things are totally
different from what you got used to. Therefore, it’s important to give it a few
more days. Reach out to the people in the neighborhood. Join local
organizations. Try activities that locals are doing. In no time, you will start
to feel at home.
overreact and say that you dislike the entire place when in reality there are
only some aspects you can’t learn to love yet. Determine what these things are
so you can solve them. If you don’t like the food, you can learn to cook. If
you don’t like the vibe at home, try to redecorate. Loving your new
environment doesn’t just happen in a snap. It requires sincere efforts.
Talk to your neighbors
If you have
concerns or if there are things you find weird, you can talk
to your neighbors. They’ve been around for a long time and they might give
a good explanation. Ask them if how you feel is normal and what to do to change
it. Start a relationship with the people closest to you so that if you feel
like going back, you will try to hold on.
If you felt like
you already did everything you could to love the place but nothing happened, it
might be time to consider leaving. You can’t force yourself to stay in a place
you don’t love. You will be miserable there. Admit that you made a mistake in
choosing that place to relocate, and move on.
If not, you can
look for a new place. This time, you need to be more cautious. Try your best to
understand the place first before you decide to move. Go there for a few days
and see if you like the vibe. Apart from how you feel, you also need to
consider how your family feels. You’re not the only person who is trying to
to a new place entails a lot. You will sacrifice for a while until you learn
to love where you are. In some instances, that time might not come. You try
everything you can, but it still doesn’t feel right. It’s part of moving. Learn
from that experience and use it so you can finally find a place that you can
call home and won’t mind to stay there for a long time.
