I used to get really homesick whenever I left home.
Some years ago when I became a cdl-a truck driver I would become very sick at the stomach by even travelling a few hundred miles away from home. My jobs would only last for a couple of weeks before I would give up and return home.
Years later I met a young lady and had to move into her home. While living there I had my own room but I was treated so badly that I became anxious to leave and be on my own.
Now that I've moved into my own apartment I've learnt to like and love myself. Be your best company and companion.
Treat yourself well and be kind to yourself. Even take yourself to a dinner or movie sometimes. You'll start to see a difference in being occupied where you won't think of being lonely as much.
