  • I moved to the UK with 300 GBP in my pocket. For a couple of months I ate bread with jam and drank water from the tap. I worked in MCDonald’s. I was rubbish at that job, so thought I’d be rubbish at any other. Wrong! After that I went step by step higher and finally I managed to get a job in the biggest medical organisation in the #UK as a PA. This wasn’t meant to last. .

I fell in love with #Thailand. I came back frm my two week holidays, quit my job, sold my things, got a divorce. I stayed there for 2 years. Then started teaching online and here I am-a business owner, an enterprenour, a (probably) forever expat. .

When reading this you might think:that sounds easy to do! Trust me, it wasn’t. You didn’t read stories about my sleepless nights, my fears of failure, of change. I didn’t write about my post-divorce depression. There were no words that described how I felt when I had to clean s*** stained toilets in a London hotel. I didn’t tell you how often I cried because I felt I will never feel at home anywhere, or because I missed my parents so much it hurt. You haven’t heard about the struggle to adjust, about the loneliness that strucks every single immigrant and expat. I haven’t even told you about feeling inadequate among all those other successful and beautiful people here. .

These are those stories that you will not hear when you follow someone on social media. You will hardly hear them from influencers and bloggers. But these stories are real. They are realer than all the beautiful photos of Bali, Thailand or Portugal. These are the stories we should all tell each other to feel that we are not alone and that we all struggle. 
Do you agree? .
