Living abroad is a really weird experience.

You spend time in a country and culture that isn't yours, and you're expected to adapt to it.

You make friends with people who are only temporarily living there as well, or locals who think the same thing about their friendship with you.

It’s all very temporary, yet there is still a need to make that place your home.

When living abroad, you don't want to feel like a foreigner. You want to belong and feel comfortable.

But eventually, well, for most of us at least, there comes a time when you need to leave.

When it's time to move on.

But how do you really know when it's time?

How do you know when you need to close one door, so others can open?

When and how do you decide to leave a place that you truly love?

My mind is spinning and I don't know how to slow it down.
