I hear ya! Its definitely tough & annoying to search for platforms and look for friends. Why can't they be around you? Why God why?

Which city you at?

I feel the same way and I grew up here. It's hard to find people you really click with. Look up Indian groups on Meetup to stay connected to your culture and meet some people

Don’t mean to be rude, but I sound like you’re disconnecting yourself from the surroundings based on ethnicity

I love that POV !! Can find 'An activity' before I find Friends 😁

You sometimes grow apart from old friends, but don't let that stop you from making new ones! It's difficult but it's possible :)

Put yourself out there, OP

Same here! I made office friends before, it becomes too complex so I stayed away when I switched firms this year

I just had dinner with some old friends and they are about to retire early. Part of their plan is to downsize their home, get a small condo and travel for 9-10 months a year. Does this seem crazy? I just can’t imagine it. I guess they figured the cost would be about the same but wouldn’t you miss the relationships. Wouldn’t your kids feel lost without having a sense of home? Anyone thought about this?

I work in tax. After 2 yrs working, I should be on path to become a senior next year. Frankly, I have no idea what I'm doing and I barely understand it as my knowledge is grossly lacking. I have no idea how I survived this far. I do my best to provide work on time and to the best of my ability. My superiors say I'm good, but it's not due to my tax knowledge. I feel anxious about this, how I'm really not ready. I have this feeling I should quit. But another voice tells me I should stay..idk...
