Hi Maria, thanks for sharing. I have also moved to abroad, but in a later part of my life. And the challenges were the same. Initially, I always compared the comfort with my home country, the struggle here, the difficulty of starting a career here.
After a while, I started to look the difficulties as challenges and listed tasks to improve myself and overcome. I wasn’t 100% successful on that, but it changed my life and my perspectives. And, yes- just twiking your mindset, you can achieve wonders, anywhere.
