I moved to a new city a few years ago but I still feel like I don't belong here. How do I deal with this?

Question : I moved to a new city a few years ago but still feel like I don't belong here. Everyone seems so negative and discouraging.  To top it all, a few friends who made my life comfortable are now moving out. I don't know how to deal with this. Teentalker , 16-year-old

Dear Teentalker,

Thank you for reaching out and sharing your concerns. 

Moving back to your hometown from another city or even country for that matter can certainly be challenging; given the differences in cultural norms and mentality of the people, thereby leading to culture shock. 

It can be even more frustrating when your behaviour is perfectly acceptable in one culture and unacceptable in another society and even more so when the people that matter to you the most (such as your friends) start moving away. 

Here are a few things that could potentially help you get through:
