Issue: I am homesick. I am away from home for the first time and I am miserable because of how much I miss home.
Insight: First of all, you need to make the most of life no matter where you are. When you start enjoying yourself you will find that when you think of home you will not be miserable but you will be happy you were able to talk to them. Once you allow yourself to feel negative feelings they tend to overwhelm you and you have a hard time enjoying even the time you have with your family in communication.
However, when you allow positive emotions to be prominent you will find that more of your experiences will result in positive emotions as well. You will still miss your family because you love them, it just will be easier for you to deal with when you are not overwhelmed with negative emotion as well.
I strive to help others by being a safe place for others to ask questions and pose issues they face.
