I am very blessed to be given this opportunity to work abroad. To be honest, I’ve never thought that I would leave PH. Moving away from everything and everyone you know is scary but not everyone will have the chance to work abroad, see things from a different perspective or simply just live a different life.
Moving here in Ireland to work is probably the most difficult but at the same time most fulfilling change I have made. I’m forever thankful to my employer for hiring me and helping me with EVERYTHING just to get here. Everything is great. REALLY. Until I realized I miss home I’ve been feeling quite homesick lately. There, I said it. I really do miss home and everyone back in the PH. I feel I just wanna run back home! There is a part of me that feels that I don’t feel settled here anymore. The feeling of emptiness is unbearable and you know? it’s frustrating and downright painful. I miss my Mama, my husband and my son so so bad. They’re always on my mind. I miss my friends. I miss everyone.
Living in a foreign land isn’t easy.1
