I am currently a sophomore going into my spring semester. Right now I am on my winter break and I am going back to my college in about a week and a half.
During the time I’m on campus, I always have a longing to go back home. I feel empty and spend my nights regretting the college I choose and even going to college in the first place. I feel homesick everyday and wish I never had to leave my home and away from family.
My freshmen year was like this also but it was very normal. I’m almost a junior now and I’m worried why I am always feeling on edge whenever I go back to campus. I have supportive and amazing friends, my grades are good, and my college experience has not been bad in anyway.
But I feel so much anxiety, dreading, and sadness about going back that I just can’t control and understand. I cannot sleep nor enjoy my winter break because I know I will have to go back. Does anyone else feel this way? Is there any explanation for this? Anything will be helpful.
