I am about to graduate from school, and I have a dilemma. Nearly everyone I hold dear lives back on the east coast, but for me to have success in my field, I would need to stay out on the west coast. I'm nervous to leave all of these people behind, but I feel it's something I have to do. What are your thoughts?

Dear Confused East-West Coaster,
After I graduated from college I also felt sorry to leave friends who were in the east and I was in the west. But before long I made friends and I have many of them to this day and from time to time I see the old ones. So look at the move as a new experience. Then I married and came to this city not knowing a soul. I got a map and each day I went exploring the city. It was great fun. Don't be afraid to make the change -- it really is exciting.
