I recently posted that I get depressed over money problems, however, I get even more depressed over this small city, or should I say town, that I moved to November 1 of last year, 2010. So I've lived here over 9 months and I have not been happy here. I lived in KY for 3 years and now I wished I had stayed there because it is so much better then here. This little town has almost no city bus system. The city bus quits very early before 6pm and it doesn't run on weekends. The downtown is mainly 1 long street making for a very boring downtown. I've not been able to make any friends so I been very depressed. I found a church not far that I was thinking of visiting but I didn't make it to church tonight. I got tired and I felt like I had to sleep. I never seem to be able to plan things; I guess I'm sort of disorganized. Do you get depressed about where you live at?

I've lived in the same city for the majority of my life and I really can't imagine living anywhere else. In fact, the thought of leaving "home" is depressing to me. I've got my friends and my family here as well being used to everything. Granted, many of my friends live in small towns in surrounding areas, but that is okay because the drive doesn't bother me at all to get to their homes. With that said, I can see why you are depressed about having moved because it is really difficult to start all over.

Before I decided to live in the city I'm in right now, I checked on every detail that I could so I won't get into any inconvenience. I chose the right neighborhood and the accessibility of the place to the mall, the railway system and bus stations. I live at the center of the city even if I need to ride the bus, cab or railway transit in going to work.And because of that I never regret any single moment. When I don't feel like cooking, I just need to walk a block or two and there I am in the mall. The church is just around the corner so I also walk during Sundays. When I have a graveyard shift I usually take a cab and I have no problem with it. The place is also flood free and the people in the community are nice and quiet so I don't worry about thieves or drunkards when I walk late at night. It's just a matter of looking at the place first before deciding to live there.

We recently moved to a new area. I like it, but wish it were a little more diverse. I moved from a smaller area and am happy I am in the city, the only thing is there are more questionable characters around here than than the smaller towns I think. I also really hope that my husband will move out, I really would like to get a divorce, and really remarry. I need to be with someone who is father and husband material, and having someone come home who is not every day makes it depressing to be here.

I also live in a rural area far away from the main city. Public transportation means a jeepney ride to the city. It is like you wait for hours how many will ride and the vehicle will not go to the city unless the vehicle is full. This town is my fathers' and husbands town. We used to live in the main city but we decided to move here again to save on rents. If you must, you can move again to a city/town that is more like KY. Rural towns are bore like the town that I live. Yes I get depress living here but thinking of the consequences, there is more plus points for us than living in the city. Think of your consequences then decide so that you will not be depress. :)

hi, every place we live have some or the other limited in facilities,If we have some advantages we do have disadvantages also. When we live in a place for quite a long time we know what are the resources,but we sometimes feel that other place is better thn this so we move to that,when we move to the new place then the problems start.So then we think why did we change and for what.I can say that change is necesarry to everyone,however the life of us shold go how we mould it.
