i know how it feels being far from home.. i remembered when i was young, i couldn't even take a step away from my family or stay over night elsewhere with another family.. i think the feeling of attachment and missing your love ones at home will still be there for the good.. so that it is not "out of sight, out of mind!".. the same goes with feelings for my friends who have left for oversea and i didn't get to meet them until after a very long time.. well i suggest getting a hobby, join a social group, a new group of friends who you feel comfortable with and can share with, especially personal and family issues.. some friends who have the same interest and hobby as you do.. they should be able to keep the feeling away for sometime and while allowing you to have someone to talk and share with =) i also find making new friends on the internet useful as well.. or on forums like myLot where you can see lots of people being active while you're also at it.. and at the same time exposing yourself to new ideas and interesting topics that others have put up.. in a way expanding your mind away from loneliness from home ;)

Hi ddaguno, when messaging fails to cure your longing for them, you need to go home to see them. This is not an alternative to messaging but the right remedy. Bring a gift.You can imagine how happy they would welcome you.

Its really hard to not miss someone you love when you are not with them. The best way is to actually be with them, which is not possible in your case. So just keep on doing what you usually do but do it more. Talk to them twice or thrice a week. Send them more text messages. Chat with them more frequently. I still think this will help very little. Since you really love them. That's why you miss them so much.

I am too, miles away from my family. What I usually do is text them daily and call them as many time as I could afford. I also put their photos as wallpaper on my mobile phone. I've created photo sharing website that members can also upload their pics, so it is kind of like a 2-way communication for us there. Whenever I go out anywhere, I always keep them in mind, buy them present and post it to them very often.

Yes, make calls regularly. Whenever you feel like taling, talk to them. Or try to video conferencing or internet chatting etc. You will feel like they are around. But whatever it is, missing is missing only. There is no alternative to it. Just suffer, one day all will come together. Or make regular short visits. How far they are? You are a Chinese, and where they? In your country only? Take one week leave and make vocational trip to your famil. Even I am going for a week time for vocation and will back on 1st July with you all. Best of luck and hope to be in touch with your family soon. Regards, Thank-s
