  • I want to go back to my home country

    Hi! So, I'm from Romania and I'm 14 and in 2014 my mom moved to England to gain more money and the following year when I finished primary she took me with her. I've been living in England for 3 years and only went in holiday to Romania once during this time. I never wanted to move to another country but when I got here it was even worse than I imagined. Here, I don't really have friends whereas in Romania I had plenty and it's lonely and it led to me getting fatter because I don't have anyone to go out with. These whole three years I've only been going to school and staying home (and school sucks because I'm always insecure about my english and accent and because I don't have any good friends) And it feels horrible to just keep waiting for so much time for the day to pass I look back and I don't recall anything which makes me feel like they passed in a second and I've only been wasting time. I don't have any family here besides my mom who works all day so when she says that she took me here to spend time with me is retarded because all we talk is "Good morning and good night". She keeps telling that we'll go back when I finish my GCSE's in 2020 but I can't stand living here anymore I feel so lonely and useless when I was so happy in Romania and when she says we'll go back when I finish year 11 she sounds like she's unsure/lying (her voice changes and her face looks weird). In Romania I could live with my grandma as in the year before my mom took me with her to England. When I tell her I want to go back she tells that I have to do whatever she wants until I'm 18 which I guess is true but I can't be forced to enjoy living here. What can I do?
