I am originally from Green Bay, WI, but had to move to Detroit, MI for a job. I listened to Y100 everyday and continue to via the web stream on your web site. I left my family, friends, and a girl that I was sure I was going to marry. When I told her I was moving, I was all for the long distance thing, but she wasn't. She ended it. Did I mention this all happened in the last 3 months? I've been terribly depressed. I was able to come back to Green Bay for Christmas, but had to leave the day after to get back to work on Monday, and I didn't get a chance to see or talk to my ex. I haven't really made any friends yet, and now New Year's Eve is tomorrow and I'm going to be alone...thinking about the girl I let get away...what do you suggest I do to get over the holiday blues?
Alone in Michigan
That's tough that you had to leave your family for a job, but with the economy the way it is, I don't blame you. I feel for your broken heart...I wish that she would have tried the long distance thing. Even though it is rare, sometimes those relationships work out. As for tomorrow, what do you feel like doing? If you had more friends, would you go out? Do you just want to be alone and veg out on the couch? Or do you want to be Mr. Romantic and find a way to surprise your ex on New Year's Eve? Do you really love her enough to go through all of that trouble? Alone, don't be sad tomorrow. All tomorrow means is that another year is gone and a new one is approaching. Use the new year to celebrate starting your life over. Make a life for yourself in Michigan. Make friends, make a home, and maybe find a new love. I don't want to push if you aren't ready to move on, but use the new year as a symbol of you starting over and making life the best it can be.
