Since I have finished school now I was thinking about packing my bags and move to another city across the country which has been my dream for a long time. I have relatives over there so I won't be too alone but I'm super scared! I'm not sure about doing it. My tiny hometown is my comfort zone with my childhood friends, some of them has moved too.. I do the same thing everyday, I see the same things everyday. It's always the same. I want something new but I am so scared. Do you have any experience about this? I can't make up my mind. I have lived at the same place for twenty years I feel like it's time for a change which means letting go.

If by finished school you mean High School, then you do not have much to go on as far as getting a job, so putting yourself in a new city without a good amount of money could hurt you badly.
If you have finished college, then you still have to get a job, but it should be somewhat easier to get a good paying job.
Either way, you can also consider the military. If you have the college degree, you can be an officer. But in either case you will get experience at ordering your life, adjusting to new situations, and learn new things that will help you after you get out, all while having the safety net of money coming in and a place to live and eat.0

If you have relatives there, maybe ask if you can stay with them for a bit (like an extended visit) to see if you like the city and really want to move there. It won't be scary because you'll know that it's just a temporary visit and you can always go back home. And then you can take some time to make up your mind!1
