Do you think you have it in yourself to move more than a days drive away?

I couldn't and I find myself interested in the difference between me and people who do this.

My main thing is that I would feel like I'm abandoning my relationships with people. I also feel a sense of duty to help the people I'm friends with and I would feel guilty if I moved,

Once I got there, I think I would be stressed out by trying to adjust to my new life and wouldn't have much time to go out and make a whole new set of friends.

You're not leaving your old life behind when you move far away, but my perception is that it's pretty close to that.

Just wanted some insight from people who have done this.
