I think I can understand your feeling. I don’t really feel like ever going back and settle in my own hometown ever. Only my family and friends keep me going back every now and then. Don’t get me wrong, I love this place where I grew up but I just don’t see myself living there. I just have different way of thinking now.
Some older family members told me I’m so silly in giving up all the comfort I have back in my hometown — cars with drivers, comfortable medium size house, housemaid — to live in a foreign land where I have to do nearly everything myself. What they don’t understand is I love it! I love doing things by myself. I love walking, I love public transport and I love just living life.
I guess people just need to understand that everyone has different definition of happiness.
Thank you for sharing your story, Jason!
