Our expert says:
some of the most stressful things that happen in life are the following: moving home or leaving home, adapting to a new place, being away from family and long-standing friendships. So all of the things you dont think could be contributing to your stress are in fact among the most stressful life events experienced.
You firstly need time to adapt and as you feel more settled I would expect you then to feel more confident and become interested in meeting new people. It is likely that the lack of confidence in a new place is holding you back a bit. Try to not push yourself and firstly get to know the people around you that you have just met and take it from there. As you begin to feel more comfortable with your new environment I think you will feel a whole lot easier. What you are experiencing is pretty common for people just starting at a new college or work place in a new environment.
Go out there with your friends and have a good time - the rest will follow!
