Migration to another country is a pretty big upheavel to anyones life and comes with it's ups and downs for most of us.We learn a lot during the whole process,from first inkling of wanting to move through to visa application and finally to the big move itself,it is all a big learning curve.We also learn a lot about ourselves,partners,children and to a certain degree friends and family who are left behind too.For some it makes them stronger but for others it is quite the opposite.
For some of us the change of scenery also comes with a change of lifestyle or career.Our social life might be different,we might use this time to create smaller changes in our lives too......a bit like starting with a clean slate.These changes all contribute to the feeling that life indeed is now different[whether good or bad].
But what of the deeper changes.......the changes to you on a personal level.Most people will agree that the experience changes them in some subtle way,maybe it made you a more determined person,maybe you have become depressed or gained confidence.You may not have even noticed the change until someone else brought it to you attention.
No matter what else migration brings one thing is certain...... it creates a change in us all,no matter how small that change may be.
My question is..........what is different about you now?and do you consider this a good change?
