Moving to California was one of the best decisions of my life. That being said, it has not always been the easiest transition for me. One of my biggest struggles has been developing true friendships. While I have a couple close friends here I miss my girlfriends from home every single day.
What bothers me the most is that since being here, I’ve been letting other people’s ways effect mine. Not having many people I can depend on has shaken me up and hindered my actions. I feel like I’m very rarely myself when I am with anyone but those select few that I trust. I’m finding that feeling uneasy about my surroundings has made my shyness escalate.
That being said, some may wonder how my “shyness” has allowed me to have this blog. Here I am, sharing my life with mostly strangers. But the thing is, I don’t really think about that. It’s actually really easy (although a lot of work!) for me to have this blog. I guess it’s because I know that I am sharing myself with people who enjoy what I do. It’s easy to “talk” to people who I know will only come to listen if they want to.
I love connecting with other people who have the same interests as I do. That is something that I regrettably lack in my “real” life. This blog has been an incredible way for me to befriend other girls just like me. It has made that void in my every day life less prominent. I’m thankful.
