Unhappy Leaving my classmates. :( - August 15th 2013, 03:59 PM

So I got into a postgraduate psychology course I wanted (yay!!) but this means I'll be leaving my classmates in the performing arts course I've been doing for a year - nearly all of them are continuing on with the last two years of the course, the higher certificate.

I've never ever connected with a group of people the way I did with my classmates this year... even as our number dwindled from 16 to 12 we were so so close as a bunch and each of them were like a best friend to me.

I just put up my facebook status to say I wouldn't be coming back to join them and started crying... I can't stand the thought of leaving them and having them all continue on without me, and not getting to see them every day. I'm so sad. I feel like I'm breaking up with twelve people at once and it's a lot more painful than I thought it would be.

Honey, you're familiar, like my mirror, years ago
I slithered here from Eden just to sit outside your door
Níl a shíltear mar a bhítear.
Things are not always what they seem.

I'm sorry you're facing this loss right now. I can understand how leaving such a close-knit group must be difficult. Are you just switching programs, or switching schools? If you're just switching programs, then at least you can hang out with these friends outside of class! I know it won't be the same, as you won't be working toward a common goal and won't have nearly as much time to be together, but at least it isn't a permanent "good-bye."

As time goes on, I think it will be easier to cope with this loss because you'll be gaining something new: the beginning of a career in something that you really want to do. You'll meet new people along the way, and while it won't be the same as what you've had with these friends, it can still be very fulfilling. =)
