Away From Home but…
It can be difficult at times to be away from family or loved ones, when for major reasons you have to leave. Having to leave your place to train academically, for work, for health reasons and many other situations that may happen in life.
It is truly a great change in a person’s life. It is a new stage, new challenges, new opportunities, new relationships, new friendships, new neighbors, etc. Everything is new and we want to experiment and discover what is in the environment.
For a person accustomed to the comforts of a family or who did not care about chores, only about their personal things, being away from the family may seem like a sacrifice. Beyond the everyday things that need to be done in a house, getting used to being alone and dealing with not having the presence of the people we love can be difficult for some. As human beings, we often need the containment of others and feel accompanied.
Sometimes, when things are going well, we can overlook those who are far away. We can not call them, or hang on to send text messages. But when reality is raw, when it does not go as we expected, if things do not turn out well, we realize how much we miss our loved ones.
Sometimes we can feel like leaving everything and running to find what we leave. The desire to want to be with our people is so great that sometimes our eyesight becomes cloudy and we remain blind with our initial objectives. We want to give up.
But there are options to continue in course and deal with the difficulties we can find. Mainly, we must focus on not being so negative by seeing what we lack, but putting our focus on all the good that is at our disposal. There are so many interesting possibilities that perhaps we still do not know and that we can discover in a new place , things that perhaps do not exist at home. This includes knowing new people.
Of course you should always be extra cautious with those people you do not know. It is not prudent to blindly trust any stranger, and one should always walk carefully in every new relationship. But through the right channels we can get to know reliable people with similar hobbies to ours, and discover friendships that bring wealth to our life.
On the other hand, all the effort we make, to deprive ourselves of being with our own, we must see it as an investment, a springboard to achieve our dreams and our desires.
This change is sometimes abrupt and requires dedication and great care to adapt to your new environment. Especially the first days, until the roots take the necessary strength so that it remains firm. Over time, its fruits will speak for themselves. “ So it is with those who must leave their place, get away from their families. It is a necessary process for our growth.
