Anonymous asked: So I've just started college (it's my third weekend here). I'm having a terribly difficult time making friends. I mean, I've met people I get along with, and my roommate and I get on fine, but I don't really hang out with them much. I'm just so lonely, and I want to go home. I've never felt as lonely as I do now. What do I do?
You tough it out. That’s all there is to do. It will get better. And I know that phrase is about as canned as they get, but you need to believe me. It will either get better this year, or it will get better second year. But definitely don’t give up by third week, and don’t forget that there are hundreds if not thousands of others at your school feeling the exact same thing. It may take you a couple more years to find your niche and find your kindred spirits, but do what you have to to hold on. You’ve got this.
