I might have already told you that Flo and I still like to watch a TV show from Germany which deals with peoples emigrating to new countries all over the world. It’s not only interesting to us how other people feel while moving to the US. It is interesting to follow people through this journey in general. But: Most of the times it’s pretty sad to see. Because most of the people are too naive and too unprepared for this big step.
I again want to speak out to everyone that plans on moving in the near or general future: Please do not think that this is easy! It’s hard! Horribly hard! Not only, because you have to leave your well known life, your friends and also your family! But also, because moving to other countries doesn’t mean everything is going to be better! Indeed everything is going to be harder in the beginning! A lot harder! You will cry, you will be devasted, you might be disappoint and you will be challenged as you’ve never been before!
This exiciting journey might also end with a lot of resentment and disappointment for you! You always have to keep in mind that noone is waiting for you! Nothing will change, because of you! You will have to be the one that has to change!
I don’t want to scare anyone away from doing this! This is an amazing journey that brings you so much closer to who you really are and what is right for you in life! But please, don’t expect it to be easy! Otherwise you might be giving up faster than you ever thought you would!
Be prepared, be open and be realistic in your thinking! And you might and hopefully will be successfull and as happy in your new life as Flo and I are right now!
