Re: Who is this new person
Ive been there. Just so frustrating because you can only blame yourself in such situations. I think it has happened to you quite a bit, with me it has happened when I had work 5 times a week. There were a few dull weekends during that time and I interacted with no body for more than a full day and things got rather dull.
Since then though due to circumstances I moved somewhere entirely different and without work things are worse but there are people around which makes things a little better but eventually things turn out the same, sometimes worse because I am doing things for others.
I recently went away on a sightseeing tour and being on my own was a wonderful experience. Im not saying this will work for you but maybe you can think about doing things that you hear other people doing and thinking about doing it yourself. Things can appear much better and life becomes refreshing for at least the period of time you are on holiday.
For general purposes, think about starting a hobby. Will keep you occupied, give you a sense of excitement that is missing at the moment. Think about some things you can do with others or enjoy by yourself.
