My Dilemma

Being a near-graduate (graduating this June!) , I don’t yet have a full-time job. That doesn’t stop me from dreaming though.

I have always been open to the idea of being relocated overseas for my job.

I am fully aware of the lifestyle that I will be choosing. However there is one difference: my family won’t be there with me. This is something that troubles me deeply. I have never lived in a foreign country without them, so what makes me think that my experience will be the same? I’ve only ever gone to school in foreign countries – never worked ‘there’ on a full-time basis. Things will be different.

The fact that it will almost definitely be different than ‘growing up’ there is what makes me hesitate. I won’t be thrown into a school where all of the kids have the same kinds of experiences. I won’t be living with my family. Won’t I be lonely?
