Find Your Happiness Stay Connected with Friends and Family Abroad

April 1, 2014 by Soha Naveed

We live a busy life. Busy to take time out for the little pleasures of life that make us happy. In this tedious routine we often adrift from life’s precious happiness’. This constant urge of earning, mostly for our families and their better future, we have lost the real meaning of happiness.

As the United Nations brings us the International Day of Happiness on March 20th, as an assurance to keep the happiness alive inside of us, let us acknowledge this day to keep the joy intact. Though this day is rejoiced on a global level, I’m sure a lot of us do not celebrate it for either we’re too occupied or unaware of this day.

Why the need to go abroad?

Each one of us has various challenges we face in our daily routine. They say, ‘you need to walk in someone’s shoes to know about the path they’re treading ’. It holds true for all of us. Some face work place discrimination issues where they are not given proper rights and freedom of speech while others face the economic downslide in their area. With a life filled with such situations, where do we find peace and happiness?

On the account, Google tells that 80% of the current population is flooded in financial turmoil. This fear cages any normal human who is trying to get through the day. They flee from place to place in search of a better life, higher standard of living and better education only to be taken far away from their loved ones. Homesickness engulfs them.

I’ve noticed a large number of people going abroad for better opportunities. Despite the obvious pros, there are certain challenges one faces while living abroad. The feeling of missing your mother, wife/husband and even your siblings on any special occasion grows with distance. You might find yourself financially restricted, thus saving as much money as possible and to earn as much as you can while you’re at it. Nonetheless, you can still give yourself the happiness you truly deserve.

The key to happiness lies within you, you just need to discover it for yourself. Here’s how I believe you can have an upward curve on your lips while staying abroad:

Get in touch back home:

Staying abroad doesn’t mean you don’t contact your family back home. One of the ways to stay connected is internet calling apps that enables you to make cheap international calls back home and stay connected with your family and friends all the time. This not only connects you, but also proves to be economically viable by saving money on long distance calls.

Don’t compare yourself with others:

Every person possesses different set of traits. They lead a different life and their circumstances are different in their own perspective. There is no point of comparing yourself to someone who studies with you or works with you. There is a fine line between being in awe and being jealous. Try not to cross it by making a mistake of making comparisons of you with others. Be strong-willed in your most vulnerable emotional state.

Respect yourself:

I always heard my mother telling me that if I do not learn to respect myself the world will never respect me. Appreciate your courage, your conviction and admire your self-worth.

Always cherish your memories:

Living in the past is never worthwhile; yet rejoicing the precious moments spent with the loved ones is something worth holding onto. Always cherish the happy and joyous moments of your life and never for once stop believing that you won’t experience them again.

Take care of yourself:

I know, the way our mother looks after us is unbeatable and no one can replicate that love and adoration. But once you have your feet set miles away from her, you are your own responsibility. Always look after yourself. After all, a beautiful body leads to a beautiful mind.

Staying connected with friends and family is the ultimate key to happiness when abroad. They always lift our moods when we are down. Their voice is enough to get us through many of our lonesome days. Keep yourself happy and do not let go of the little happiness’ of staying connected with your loved ones. Cheers!
