Moving to a new can be either your long-awaited goal or a necessity. Maybe you are tired of your home environment and you desperately need a change. Or maybe you are forced to move because of undesirable circumstances. Let us look at the possible advantages and disadvantages of moving to a new country.
On the one hand, as the saying goes, you will get a breath of fresh air. A new country means new people to interact with, new opportunities, new places, new nature, new culture. Every person needs a change every once in a while, and there are few better ways to do that than moving to another country altogether. Another great plus can be the new language: constant interaction with people in shops, institutions, cafes and your new friends will easily let you add a whole language to your skills. Depending on your learning speed, this can happen in any period between a few months and a year. I should also mention that a great many people have found their significant other in a different country.
On the other hand, if you are too attached to your family and friends in your home country, believe me, moving will turn into a nightmare. You may or may not feel this immediately, but over-attachment to people in the “other place” will take its toll on your mental stability and you might face depression. When moving, make sure this is exactly what you want and that you will not constantly be thinking of your past life. Ignore this, and your new home will only torture you. To add to that, if you are not prepared mentally for the possible difficulties (not finding a job, job dissatisfaction, culture shock), you may quickly grow to hate the new place you are in.
The best advice I can give you is: think about it well. Weigh in how attached you are to your home country and how willingly you are ready to change that.
