Talking to someone – Buffering

Hello coaches

First of all, thank you guys for all the amazing answers. This is my first month here and I am already in love with this section.

We moved to new place couple of months back and for person who was always in touch with people and friends I find it difficult to process loneliness and get depressed thinking I don’t have any friends here.My thoughts are like if I had friends I would have been more excited and happy. So in such situations I try to what’s app someone or look for someone who can speak to me.I keep checking if someone has msged me or texted me.I kinda get desperate to talk to people.I was wondering is this form of buffering ?I have always heard people saying talk to someone if you feel this healthy coping mechanism ? Am I creating a dependency on others ?
