i HATE my hometown, i had an extremely ROUGH past in this town and even tho i shouldn't hate the people as if they hurt me (it was my family), i just HATE them, i don't want to socialize get to know them, everytime i see someone from the past im reminded of my mistakes and the girls i USED to be and i immediatly dislike them, dont want to know them even tho i have seen them for years, dont have many friends but like 3 friends i hangout with. My family lives here (bro sis and mother) and i dont have fam anywhere else. Im 23 now and stuff needs to change but im just not happy and dont want to put effort in getting my own place here and settling here, i feel like all hope is lost. I dont have any family and friends in the city i want to go, nor do i study there and the feeling of starting all over again can make me feel shut out and left out. What should i do? Is it me? or is it my hometown? what can i do?

Sometimes a change of scenery and a fresh start is the right thing to do, sounds like the case for you.
Save up some $$$ and find a place you want to move to, who cares if you don't have friends or family there, reinvent yourself and get a fresh start!
You can always go back and visit, but moving several hundred miles away and starting over can be really good. Scary, but good. Before long it will feel like home and you'll have new friends and a new life, and if/when you go back to your old hometown, it will feel so foreign and far away... and you'll feel good for having the courage to go out on your own and start your own life without your past dragging you down0
