roxanesophia . . . well done.
You can see with hindsight now, how the seperating from old friends and family immediately makes you dependent solely on those at the KH. It's a recruitment tactic. The longer you continue in that state, the harder it becomes to do what you've done.
Our true friends will never be perfect . . . but they will still be our friends no matter what. Conditional friendships are not really friendships at all. They are always built on a premise that is more important than you are.
The more time passes, the more you will see what a wise decision you've made.
Well done to you!
