Chronicles of an Expat Life: People at Home Don’t Get
Have you ever felt a sense of disconnection when reuniting with friends and family back home? Personally, I know this struggle all too well, and that’s why I want to help.
This disconnection is a common experience, so just know you’re not the only one experiencing it. Many of us have felt that disconnection and longing to belong when we return to our home country.
In this week’s episode, we’ll explore how to bridge the gap and reconnect with loved ones when living abroad.
We’ll start by looking at what we usually do when we feel people don’t get us and could care less about our lives. For instance:
- Finding validations in other spheres
- Censoring or downplaying our experiences
- Making a fuss or complaining with others back at home
We tend to focus on the things that divide us and not on what unites us. This can be a painful experience and can lead to loneliness. So, instead of doing that, tune into this episode to learn the 3 steps you can take if you find yourself in this situation.
