1. Bigger Opportunity
Sometimes, staying in your old town will not get you anywhere in your chosen field. You may want to leave town to search for better opportunities and more growth. Some leave town because they want to widen their horizon and check other places out to see if they are for them. If you feel that you need to leave town in order to make yourself better, go ahead and do so. You don’t have to leave permanently. Make sure that people will take care of your home. That way, should you want to come back, you have a place to return to.
Remember that living in a foreign place, may it be another country, another continent or just another state, will still be hard and pretty lonely. Psych yourself for the challenge as you will definitely feel home sick the first few days of your stay there. Some people who cannot take the loneliness eventually come back to their home towns while others take vacation often just to survive. But what you should also remember is that, these bouts of homesickness are just temporary. After a while, you will be able to build your own life in your new town, have new set of friends and loved ones who will fill your intimacy needs. So hang on. That’s just part of the whole process.
Another area that you need to take care of is your property. Depending on the time that you will be gone, you can either sell your properties or have someone manage it while you are gone. This way, should you need to come back either for a visit or for good, you will have a place where you can stay in. Selling your property however is advisable if you feel that you have no more reason to come back. For instance, if all your family are already abroad and your are the only one here, then by all means sell the property. They will be there to take care of you anyhow.
Depending on your reason for relocation, it is important that once you live in another area, you will have something that will help occupy your time with. This is essential in keeping you amuse. Otherwise, you will only feel home sick. Before leaving, make sure that you will be doing something there, either in a form of work or career or a plain hobby. Having something to do will take your mind off your worries and make your stay in the town more pleasant than what you have expected. Keep yourself busy and you will forget that you even relocated.
