I’m gonna check it out, thanks !September 14, 2019 at 4:06 pm #312295
I’ve been thinking about living close to campus for the last couple of days. Now I’m sure that it’s not worth the hassle for the moment. My parents have financial issues right now, I know I can’t expect them to help me for a rent. Besides, I know that the next year of uni is going to be tough. Exhausting, stressful, scraring and isolating. Seeing my family when coming from uni is something worth staying with them. I don’t know how I’d handle living by myself.September 14, 2019 at 4:21 pm #312299
Actually, I’m starting my 4th year of medecine school (I live in France) next month. In the next three years, I will work at the hospital every morning and have to go to the library everyday until noon in order to get ready for exams (one every 3 months). Many students told me that those three years are tough and most of them seem to have a really bad time. Maybe it won’t be so hard for me (hopefully 🙂 ). I’d love to make at least one good friend though. Loneliness and feeling misunderstood really brings me down sometimes.
Thank you for your message ! It feels good to know there are others introverted people out there. They are so hard to find though.
I think I saw a video that seems like the one you describe. It makes me think of mindfulness.
Hopefully you’re right about things getting betterSeptember 14, 2019 at 4:30 pm #312301
Thank you for your answer. Your words really make me think. I may find answers to some old questions that I’ve asked myself for a couple of years.
Thank you again, I wish you the best 🙂September 15, 2019 at 3:56 am #312345PeggyParticipant
Thanks – I hope it helps. You are already reaching out to others by studying medicine and presumably taking that up as a profession. I hope the end result will be worth any tough times that you may experience along the way – developing a positive mental attitude will help you sail through it. You will make friends – it’s a profession where you have to work closely together. You will make friends.
Good luck with your studies and best wishes for the future.

I understand why living close to campus is not a good idea. Maybe, just maybe you can stay in campus longer one afternoon and attend a meeting or a party with your peers, maybe someone can give you a ride home later. A bit of socializing is better than none.

I’ll do my best to follow your advice ! I know that I’m going to need to socialize more than ever for the next couple of years. I’m starting to think that it’s going to be alright 🙂 Thank you for your answer, anita

You are welcome. A little socializing will go a long way for you. Like I often write here, we are by nature social animals, we need to socialize.
Post again anytime you want on any topic and I will be glad to reply to you.

You’re definitely right about the human need to socialize.
Thank you, that means a lot. I wish you the best 🙂
