How much does your environment affect you?
I’m not talking family-wise or having to do with people, but your actual physical environment.
How much of an affect does it have on you? Or is supposed to?
I’m trying to figure out how much of how I feel right now is because of my physical environment, and how much of it is just me being an idiot.
I know that quote “Wherever you go, there you are,” but I want to know how much “where you go” affects “how you are.”
This is going to sound cliche coming from someone my age, but I hate living in the suburbs. For 70% of my life I’ve lived in them, and I hate being here. I feel sluggish and don’t get excited about anything. I get restless and frustrated that I have to learn to drive and will have to drive everywhere I go, mainly to get to some retail job and the mall. I’d much rather be in a city like Philadelphia (where I spent the other 30 %) or New York, where I was born.
But I don’t know how much of that is me being stupid.
