What Is Homesick?
You might know what is homesick but let me explain it in 2 words.
Homesick is when you feel distressed because you are away from home.
I have been away from my home, my family and my country for almost 10 years now.
Do you have this feeling, when you miss something about your home every day?
I miss having meals with my family. I miss chatting with my parents and hear their stories when they were young. I miss my nephews and nieces laughter.
I felt that I will be stuck outside my country forever but in this post, you will discover how I am going to overcome my problem and how I want to help you as well.
I know how difficult it is to be in a country that is not yours, to live away from your family and friends.
I feel your pain and I really want to help you.
If you feel one of the following symptoms when you are away from home, it might be an indicator of homesick.
- Difficulty in focusing on subjects unrelated to home
I am having these symptoms almost daily and I feel that I am in an endless nightmare!
I wake up at night and I feel so lonely, trapped and not living with passion anymore.
Why should we live away from our families and parents for years and decades?
Why are we obliged to travel for work?
Don’t we have an alternative to the traditional jobs?
I Was Hopeless
I really was hopeless. I was waking up every day and saying to myself, am I going to live this life for the next 20, 30, 40 years or maybe for the rest of my life?
Then I ask myself, why am I away from my family for a decade now?
The obvious answers are: to work, to make a living, to have a decent life.
But if the traditional job is preventing me from living with my family, not allowing me to visit them more than 1 time per year, maximum 2 times if I am lucky.
Now you might be in the same situation and you feel that you are trapped forever.
No worries, just keep reading, I am sharing with you my personal story and I hope it will give you some insights.
You might be asking yourself if there are any homesick cures. Because as we know it’s not an illness but it’s something more dangerous.
Please be aware that I am not a doctor or psychologist, I am just trying to help you from my personal experience.
What are the cures that you think about normally?
You might be asking yourself “How to deal with homesickness” or “how to overcome the homesickness issue”.
There are a few things that can help you stay the course:
- Speak with your family more often
- Speak with your old friends and stay in touch with them
- You can share photos and videos with family and friends
- You can send them postal letters if you want to be original and if you like writing
- You can try to be with them more often
These are a few things that can reduce the pain.
For me, the real cure is to be physically with them and to be able to hug them and share with them unforgettable moments.
In fact, I try to be with them more often but my traditional job is not helping.
Either because I don’t have enough money or because it’s so complicated to arrange vacations with colleagues or for any other reason that the boss can create…
The Traditional Job Isn’t Helping
For me, the traditional job is for sure not helping. Why? Because I should be in the office every day from 9 to 5 at least…
So I am limited geographically in order to be closer to the job.
The job I am in right now doesn’t allow me to be with my family when I want.
This summer I decided not to take my vacation because I want to spend Christmas and New Year vacations with my parents.
And the question is, are we obliged to live like this? Why can’t we work, when we want, how we want and from whatever place we choose?
I can’t tell you how many marriages and new births I have missed. How many important moments passed by me. These moments might come only once per lifetime.
My lovely aunty passed away and I wasn’t there to kiss her goodbye…
These events got me to think outside the box. I started asking myself:
- How can I work and be closer to my family and friends?
- How can I work and travel on my own terms?
- What are the alternatives to the traditional job in today’s digital world?
Here’s what I found…
The Best Solution That Might Work For You As Well
After a long time of research and patience. Things started to get clearer for me.
One day I was in my kitchen washing the dishes after my dinner, listening to music on youtube when I heard a couple from Australia speaking about an opportunity Online.
I was a bit skeptical at first but deep down I felt that they are honest and they spoke from the heart.
They offered me a FREE 7 days video series about Digital Marketing and Online Business. They said it’s the same that freed them the jobs they hated.
At that time I said, what am I going to lose. I tried what they offered and boy I am so happy and grateful for that.
After watching the 7 days video series and knowing the real potential of Online Business and Digital Marketing especially the concept of affiliate marketing.
I have joined a community of like-minded digital entrepreneurs who are like me and you. They want alternatives to traditional jobs.
See, I am not lonely anymore, I have a world-wide community supporting me and giving me my hope back. I have also an alternative to my job. I will be a digital entrepreneur. Yooohooo, I am really excited…
A Caring Community
Honestly, the Community I am in right now is something I have never experienced before. I now have the chance to help others.
Last time I heard a fellow in our community struggling with her Online Business, I jumped out to her and helped her.
The other time, another fellow sent me a facebook message asking if he can provide me with some help.
He didn’t want anything in return, he just wanted to help me.
I am really surrounded now with amazing people who are high achievers and who are improving their lives for the BEST.
I felt that I am trapped in a job that will keep me away from my family forever. I was searching for a real, permanent cure for my homesickness.
After being away for 10 years, homesick, depressed and anxious.
I finally found my hope back. I found a community and an Online Business that changed my life and can very well help you too.
My current mission is to help people finding the real permanent cure for their homesickness.
