i've changed so much! I can't go back to my old life... but I am afraid to start my new one!

Question Posted Tuesday July 17 2012, 2:24 am

a while a go i got quite sick and couldnt eat or talk for two months. i used to arty all the time but i found a new way to life, a path i wanted to take that included healing myself through spirituality, proper nutrition and exercise. all my old friends are not on this level and not even my step sister who i am extremely close with. i can't go back to my old life and i cant fully move on to my new life, because i am afraid i won't find anyone truly like me/people that are more mature. has anyone been through anything like this or a pivotal change in their life? and advice on the topic would be greatly appreciated
thanks, amber

This is tough, but stay strong; you shouldn't give up on yourself for them. You didn't say how old you were, but I'm guessing that you're in high school. If I'm wrong, correct me and I'll correct my answer! If it is the case that you're in high school, you're in a great position. In a few years or less you'll be off to college. College is a great place. Pretty much everyone is starting over and there are a lot of people so you'll easily find some that fit with your new style. I had great relationships with my friends in high school and we never talk anymore. That's how life works. If you don't see someone for a long time you will start to drift apart no matter how close you were. The worst thing you could do is go back to your old ways because you're lonely. You'll be sacrificing yourself as a person for a few years of being a little more comfortable, but not happy. Find things to occupy yourself for awhile and it will all work out. It's so wonderful that you've gone through this transformation. Don't let anyone (including yourself) take that away from you. Good luck! :)

okay, so its really good that you've noticed a change in yourself and that you're embracing it! :) but not everyone went through that so they aren't at the same maturity level as you. I'd say keep your new look on life and either they will embrace your change like good friends or they wont and thats when you realize its time to get friends that will accepct you for who you really are :)

sincerely, Monica
