I grew up abroad
You grew up abroad. Your parents are from one country but you’ve lived in another country for a shorter or longer time. You are back ‘home’. Or so people like to think. On the outside there are many similarities, but on the inside there is a world of different experiences.
What does this mean to you?
Does this sound familiar?
You’re so used to adjusting that you don’t really know who you are.
You often feel different than others, you feel misunderstood or insecure.
You feel restless and out of place.
You have a sense of sadness, despite all of the interesting things you have experienced.
You may have difficulty maintaining long term relationships and feeling close to others.
If you are struggling with some of the issues mentioned above, you may find it helpful to talk to someone about this. It can be your first step to a different future, one in which you feel at home within yourself.
