I suspect it’s less the compactness and more the pollution and the commute. If You Are Stubborn And You Know It You Must Be Norwegian. Nature is calming. The concrete jungle with its dense population is something that stresses me out. I enjoy now living in a rural area with less traffic, even if it is a longer commute. I have fallen in love with people and I give so much but I just get it back at me like if I’m trash and now I’m at a point where I don’t know what to do and say and the only thing that’s on my mind is suicidal.
