Yesterday you were in the country of your dream with the family that you’ve created and friends that you’ll never forget and here you are today, in your homeland where you were born and raised but it doesn’t fit, it feels unfamiliar, something is different…No, actually, everything is different because as I said…Yesterday, you were in the country of your dream where you were happy and found yourself there but without any transition you had to leave it all behind.
For the people living in Australia or USA and your home country is in Europe, everything will look like it’s been downsized But don’t worry after a few days, you’ll become accustomed to it.
It goes without saying that you’ve changed, however, your friends don’t realize it when they see you again. They’ll behave and treat you as if you never left and although a part of you feels happy, another part is irritated because you feel like they’ll never fully understand the better and different person you’ve nurtured into whilst nothing different happened to them.
“In USA, cars are bigger”… “Oh God I‘ve forgot that in France, people were rude”… “Damn it! I need to go back to Australia, at least, my salary will be higher”
6) You’ll go through an emotional roller coaster phase
7) Your friends will keep reminding you on how different you’ve become based on your Facebook pictures (your look, your hair and even, your makeup)
