Good day darlings! So you’ve decided to go study abroad in another country and face the unknown all by yourself? That’s an extremely important decision for you to make, as studying abroad on your own is not for everybody. There will be lonely moments. They will try to discourage you. Or to put you down. But you will have to stay strong, because studying abroad is one of the most awesome experience that you will ever go through. So I think now is a good idea to discuss about some of its benefits ?
Problem solving level over 9000
Yes, your problem solving skills will skyrocket. Why? Obvious reasons. You find yourself in a place where you don’t know anyone and you are surrounded by stranger from all sides. No one to help you, so you clearly have to improvise a lot, so your creativity will also get a boost. From finding accommodation to actual befriending other human beings, the whirlwind of events could be a bit overwhelming – FULL SURVIVAL MODE! But worry not, it will take a little bit of time to adapt to the new conditions, but it will eventually happen.
Different people with different mentalities
You will meet a lot of people from various cultures and nations. But it’s not only about the quantity, but the quality of these. It takes a lot of courage to get out of one’s comfort zone and go study abroad. People who are able to do that are the brave ones, which means, the best their country has to offer to the world. They are people who have lived in more than one place, people who have seen the world, basically people with higher awareness. You will notice that during your conversations ?
Increased tolerance to change
Let’s be frank here. Studying abroad is not always sweet and flowers. Sometimes bad things will happen and you will feel down. You shouldn’t see it as the end of the world, although it may seem like that on the moment. They are the bricks building up your ‘wall of tolerance’ to change, which naturally will make you less likely to have shocks whenever you will be undergoing a major life change.
Realise that WE are ALL the SAME!
Religion, race, political views… all those criteria that ‘should’ separate us, right? You will realise they do not mean anything when you meet people from all over the place and start making friends. No matter where people are from, they all share the same features – to live a happily and secure life. The sooner you understand that, the easier it will be for you to become a global citizen.
An opportunity to discover a new YOU!
Studying abroad solo is definitely a path to self-discovery. Although being alone with your thoughts is double-edged sword, doing it is for the best and there will come a day when you will look back at those days and see that they were a major step in your own self-development as a person. You are stronger than ever before now.
