Homesickness in Times of Pandemic

"You will never be completely at home again because part of your heart will always be elsewhere. That's is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place."

Mirim Adaney defines very well in this couple of sentences the difficulties of being an expatriate or living far away from our family and friends. All of us who have gone through this experience know how enriching and challenging it can be at the same time.

But what happens if we add to the difficulties of living away from home (often in a new culture and with a different language), the social distancing measures, and the restrictions due to COVID? Sounds complicated, doesn't it?.

 

It is, and it is primarily for two reasons:

  1. These measures are making the process of adapting to the new culture and the new place of residence very complicated, since they make it impossible or difficult to establish new social relationships and maintain regular routines such as going to the gym or attending language classes in person (places that foster the creation of new friendships and relationships as well as the establishment of routines that help us feel "at home").
  2. It is much more difficult, and in some cases impossible, to visit or return home to take a break, rest, and connect with our roots.

     

Tips to Survive a Stay Abroad

In my opinion, having done it twice, living some time in a foreign country is one of the most enriching experiences one can have, even when this experience is not as simple as we thought and is not free of difficulties.

When we pack our bags we tend to fill them with illusion and we concentrate on all the positive things that this new adventure will bring us. Learning a new language, new friends, all the places we are going to visit, the trips we are going to take… but rarely do we think of all the obstacles that we may find on the way to achieving our goals.
