Relocation can lead to Disorientation
Moving to a new home is a major transition, and you may be dealing with some of these issues:
How do you cope with the seeming endless details and logistics?
How do you navigate all the changes in your routine, work, and family life?
How do you cope with the loss of (or change in relationship with) old friends?
How do you make connections and establish a new identity in a community?
How long before you make friends? How long before home feels like HOME?
How do you help your children settle in when you don't feel anchored yet yourself?
It's been 6 months in the new place - why does it feel worse now?
How do you deal with the shock of "ex-pat" re-entry? A new "ex-pat" experience?
How do you feel a continued sense of identity as you are launched from a familiar world into a "foreign" world?
Despite all the challenges it is possible to begin to see the move as an opportunity for positive change, adventure, and exploration. For support on your journey, contact Martha here.
