Get to Know the New Neighbors
Moving can be emotionally draining. After saying goodbye to your friends and family, packing up and moving to a new neighborhood, you may not feel like being outgoing and social. But, after getting settled, it’s smart to take the time to meet your new neighbors.
Even if you’re not looking to make connections in the area, it’s nice to have someone you know nearby. You may also find that it’s helpful to meet people who can check mail or water the plants while you’re out of town — or at least someone who can recommend local service providers. Most would agree that it’s better to befriend neighbors than endure complicated relationships simply because you don’t know them well. So jump in and get to know those living next door.
