I've never really written about this topic before, but now it has become relevant for many, so I thought I'd share my thoughts. 🙂

It's been over 5 years since I relocated to the Netherlands. It wasn't part of my plan back then. Yeah, in my 20s, I had a desire to work in another country, explore different cultures, and go on adventures. However, by the time I turned 30, I had become quite content with my life at home. I had my hobbies, a solid social circle, close friends, and a stable routine.

And then love came into the picture. Honestly, I didn't hesitate for a moment. I simply packed my belongings, loaded up the car, and set off from Khimki to the Netherlands. My parents bid farewell, wishing me "Good luck!" as they say.

In the beginning, I frequently found myself dozing off, attributing it to the refreshing countryside air. Surprisingly, I unintentionally lost 4-5 kg without any specific effort. It truly astonished me. However, I eventually realized that stress was the underlying cause. So, here's the key: it's important to give yourself some time and avoid rushing to resolve all the challenges, hastily adapt, and forcefully make friends. Instead, take a moment to relax, breathe, and unwind..

Then I began comparing everything! I sought out any chance to fly back home and lived from one trip to another. The moment I set foot on the plane, I immediately felt a sense of belonging. Interestingly enough, this isn't solely my experience; it's a common feeling when you reside in one location, yet your soul yearns for another place.

So, here's the deal: every place has its ups and downs, and honestly, comparing them is just a waste of time. You know what really hit me? Moving doesn't mean ditching your roots; it means getting the best of both worlds. It was like a light bulb moment for me! And you know what? The negatives? They somehow become way more manageable and easier to deal with.

In the beginning, I constantly had this feeling that I was only here temporarily, like on a long business trip. Maybe we'd return home, or maybe we'd relocate somewhere else. But you know what? It's so much easier to adjust to a country when you approach it with the mindset that it's your permanent home. Learning the language becomes smoother, and you'll find yourself more motivated to make friends, find work, and establish a comfortable life in your new surroundings. Eventually, you'll start feeling more secure and settled.
