Things you learn when you move to a foreign country

Moving abroad is not an easy decision. Starting over in a new country is one of the most terrifying yet exhilarating adventures ever. Every aspect of your life changes and even your daily activities will challenge you. But there are some positive aspects as well, you learn a lot of things and your perspective for life changes. After discussing with my loved ones who moved to a foreign country, here we have a list of things that you learn when you move to a foreign country:

  • You push yourself out of your comfort zone. Moving to another country will test your confidence and your patience. You push yourself to limits and this will change your life. It boosts your self- confidence and makes you independent. 
  • You get to know that home is where the heart is. You will definitely always be part of two worlds – your old and your new home.
  • There is a different point of view for everything. You will come across so many different cultures, traditions and ideals, political and religious views, you’ll be amazed. Moving out will give you a different point of view.
  • You become less materialistic, living with basic things is easy and it will make you feel happier and free. 
  • When you move out you take challenges differently as you have to deal with them on your own. You have to manage everything on your own and this makes you strong. 
  • You miss your old life and it is difficult to adjust. But with time you get habitual and this new life becomes your world. 
  • Feeling homesick is normal. Missing family and friends is normal. But eventually, you learn to overcome those feelings. 
  • You establish a sense of community when you live alone. 
  • You learn how to spend money responsibly because now you know the value of earning it.
  • You’ve left the comforts of your home and moved thousands of miles away to start a new life. If you can successfully take that challenge, then suddenly the things that seemed hard before, don’t matter anymore.
