Living abroad alone is not easy. I understand how it feels to live alone in another country. I had worked and lived abroad alone for one year. There was a period of time that I felt really weak about myself. I missed my country, friends, girlfriend, family, and everything. During that time, I didn't want to do anything, didn't want go anywhere, and didn't know how to solve it.
...it was the first time in my life to do something like that. I saw many new things, I met new friends, and I learned that there are still so many things in this world that I have yet to see and learn.One day, I decided to venture outside the city and hike a mountain - it was the first time in my life to do something like that. I saw many new things, I met new friends, and I learned that there are still so many things in this world that I have yet to see and learn. At that point, I thought, "Why do I have to be stuck in my lonely world? Just staying in my small room doing nothing? It such a waste of time." After that, I started to change my lifestyle. I traveled more, tried to see things positively, talked and smiled more, and I felt better about myself.
I wrote this for people who are living abroad alone and have this problem. It's not strange, man! We all have something we struggle with, and I believe that there are answers for everyone. We just have to figure it out. This is life. Whoever you are now, you will change because it's just a part of growth. Smile and be happy.
