    Hey all, I just moved out about two weeks ago, and I'm struggling to adjust. I like the fact I live near a big city, but I get uneasy about the fact it's s built up area, congested, very diverse and there is no green big open spaces.

    I decided to go home to see my mother because my partner was going to mine and stoping over while attending an appointment in the area. I decided to go last minute to surprise my mother. When I got there instantly felt nostalgic, missed the good ol' Yorkshire countryside!

    Anyhow, saw my mum and while she was pleased to see me, I went upstairs and she's cleaned out and gutted what was my bedroom, there's hardly anything in there. I felt somewhat sad because it doesn't feel like my room, I don't belong here. She's taken my telly too, and has it in her room.

    I feel a bit like I'm not the same guy I used to be. I don't wanna let go of that, at same time because of my room looking different I feel like I can't go back. At same time I don't feel confident with the new me, only been here two weeks, still adjusting to city life.

    I feel a rocky sense of self. What can I do?

    Why did you move away?

    Ignore if you want.

    Why did you move away?
    Moved away for the employment opportunities a big city would give me. Although, its proving even more harder to get work here too.
