When people move abroad they have to learn to realise that they cannot take everything they own with them. It would be nice if you could just pack it all up and transport abroad but unless you have plenty of pennies stacked in the bank, it’s unlikely you could afford to make that happen.
Ask anyone who has already made the move abroad, most would agree that less really is more and besides if you are starting a new life anyway, you may as well do it properly! It is highly recommended to call experienced and effective removals company, as they can save you a lot of trouble with the organizing and the logistics.
Literally get rid of as much stuff as you can!
Seriously, like chuck it all out, give it away, burn your junk, donate to charity, sell it or pop it in storage if you have to. You don’t need it! You will thank me for it later, I promise you!
You probably have collectables, stacks of clothing, loads of cosmetics, loads of household crap that you really do not have to own to be able to survive. You are moving abroad, you are off to experience a new way of life, new fashions, new cosmetics, and new things. It’s all exciting and is part of the process and fun when it comes to making a big change such as this so you may as well start getting used a new life from the get go, it will also help you to integrate within a new society.
Do you really need to take everything with you, do you realise it would cost a hell of a lot more to transport your goods abroad than it would to buy it all again? Well that is the fact in the situation; it’s more cost effective to start again!
TIP/ don’t feel sad! This is all part of the fun and there is plenty to discover in the world, what you own now, is not the be all and end all!
Is it Ok to hate this massive decision you made?
Of course it is do you hate the country you live in now, sometimes? Probably yes! It doesn’t matter if you experience moments of hate or regret, in fact it’s quite normal. Don’t bottle it all up, go with the flow, you will have good days and bad, just like you do now! You may miss loved ones at times; you may absolutely love your new existence at others. Stay opened minded and except that having mixed emotions and feelings is just all part of process. Bad times will pass!
Sometimes things become a nightmare!
Did you expect it to be easy? Of course you didn’t, now deal with it! What’s the matter? Struggling to find a new doctor, can’t fathom public transport? Having trouble with visas? Are Immigration officers on your back again? Can’t understand the language? Struggling to find a decent job?
You obviously have not done your homework properly because if you had you would know that these are unfortunately all part of the nightmares situated with moving abroad, however people seem to overcome them, it’s not impossible to find a solution.
Realistically speaking relocating internationally is bound to throw up some barriers and you may stumble from time to time. By keeping focused on what was originally your goal to a better life will help you to overcome those barriers as they try to knock you down. Now you’ve already made the big leap, you’ve overcome the hardest hurdle already; surely everything else is easier now?
Take a deep breath and just get on with it, once you fathom out your new lifestyle in more detail chances are those hurdles will become more like stepping stones anyway!
