I'm a second year student living with 4 people this coming year who have become catty since a disagreement about rent. We got on, but they aren't really my people, and I have struggled to find others worth socialising with as there was a lot of playground politics going on during the first year that I found to be silly and boring. It felt like I was back in school. I can see myself becoming a bit of loner in the coming year, however this doesn't bother me too much as I think this would be best for my studies. Still, there were some wobbly moments in my first year and I became quite lonely and depressed. My mental health is easily affected and I'm used to having a lot of friends back home to have as a form of escapism. I'm sure my house mates will lighten up, but my question is:
Have you dealt with a similar situation, and if so, how did you deal with being alone for so long?
I'm keeping a positive outlook, and plan to keep busy outside of work stuff with a maybe the rockclimbing society and the gym, but in case I go a bit wrong in the noggin' again, how would you recommend dealing with those dark, lonely thoughts?
