Scared of regretting my university decision
I have applied to university in September and have firmed an offer from a university four hours away, I am scared that I may have made the wrong choice. This particular university is not car friendly meaning I would have to travel to and from by train, a six hour train journey worth £80 with four changes. I have been in a relationship for 2 years now and am really worried about how it is going to work. I have been dealing with loneliness and well-being issues for a while now which I have recently sought help for, my boyfriend has been the most supportive person, so much more so than my parents, and has supported my decision completely. He has helped me so much recently and whenever I feel down he is there to comfort me. I am worried that moving so far away and being so inaccessible will take a toll on my mental health. I am scared that I might not make any close friends who I feel comfortable talking about my emotions and well-being with and I will feel lonely so far away from my boyfriend with nobody to comfort me. I chose the university because I fell in love with the location and I felt I needed a fresh start, things have gotten quite bad at home and I have drifted apart from my local friends, for no particular reason other than lack of common interest. Has anyone been in a similar situation / have any advice for me? Even just a friendly message would help, thank you
