I'm starting to hate where I live Watch

    Okay so I actually live in a pretty decent neighbourhood on the edge of a town, we have good neighbours, it looks pretty, theres rarely crime and hardly any disturbances and theres a nice park nearby. But here's the thing, the area my neighbourhood is connected to is horrible, its filled with crime, poverty, horrible houses, nothing good to do, roadmen everywhere, its just ugly and lacks any life. Now on the other side, which is disconnected is actually alright, its heavily green, low crime, nice people but theres still nothing to do although it is a pretty area.

    So for school and meeting friends ive always travelled out, I only have 2 friends in my local area most my areas live about 10 miles away - a journey I'm used to making by train since I've been going to school in that area for the last 7 years. It's a nice place because my friends live there, it looks nice, theres a lot to do, the people are nice and it isn't dangerous, its just a completely different vibe. But i hate having to travel just to feel like I'm living, its starting to make me feel depressed. It's something ive spoken to my parents about a lot but they never seem to listen...

    In summary, I like my street but i hate my area, the area i spend most my time in when I'm not at home is 10 miles away but it sucks not living there and having to take the train or taxi there all the time... I'm learning how to drive which should make it easier but it just sucks i cant walk down to my local area and feel happy since its so awful.

    Hang in there. You will not have to live there forever. I'm in a similar position
