Most of us under estimate the effort needed to excel in a country other than ours.
We under estimate the time requirement needed to learn a new language, to understand the culture and fit in, let go of some unknown biases, build new connections, adjust to different styles of working and so on. The list is endless.
We underestimate all these and think it’s a stroll in the pack. It is not.
But you know what? It’s fine because you are not alone. There are many people just like you who are also struggling. And there are some who have been there and experienced what you are currently experiencing, which is why finding a support system is of paramount importance.
No matter how strong you think you are, you cannot do it alone.
