Make friends with other women at work. These women can become a new source of support.

Find a safe place to live. Many companies run their own hostels. Some are safe, but many are not. Sometimes they are places where women live in poor conditions and pay too much money for rent. The company may also take advantage of these women because they do not have control over where they live.

Avoid dangerous situations like walking home alone at night.

Remember that everyone feels alone at first. This is natural.
