Living in a new country with a new environment is not easy. You will deal with new people, new culture, or even new whether.
When you have to move to the country that you don’t understand their language at all, it means you are facing a big challenge in front of you.
You are walking through great adventure in your life. Take a deep breath, just go through it. Of course, being in new environment demands you to be adaptable.
Let me share you my experiences. I am 27 yo and I am an Indonesian. I just moved to Thailand for about one month ago (read also Panduan Mengurus Visa Kerja ke Thailand).
For sure, I encountered many difficulties in living there, especially when I have to deal with Thai language. I feel like an alien. I can’t understand what they speak to each other.
Simple words, I can’t enjoy my new living environment.
If it is possible, you can apply it in your new environment. For example, if you like to make some exercises or jogging, go out and find gym or park.
Or, if you like singing, find Karaoke box, then express yourself. But, how about if there’s no place like that in your new place?
You can try to go to rafting with your new friends, or you can simply go to traditional market and try to communicate new words you have learned.
Make a regular challenge-from an easy mission up to a difficult even more difficult one-for yourself. You will feel happier when you are successful enough to accomplish that mission.
What you need to do to survive is to set your new daily routines.
For example, you need to decide what time you will get up in the morning, and what will you do when you have finish your working hours.
Besides, you also need to decide what will you do in your weekend. Those new routines will help you to keep your activities on.
However, it is normal if you feel afraid of being alone and doing things by yourself. What you can do is to make yourself being a gentle one as soon as possible.
Change your perspective that your fear can be your strengths. By doing so, it means you are rewarding yourself with INDEPENDENCE.
Once you think you are independent enough, you will not let yourself feeling down and blue anymore.
They are the people who you can ask for help when you require it. Or simple words, they are happy to have you around them.
Don’t be bashful to say ‘thank you’ for every single little thing that they do to you. For example, when they invite you to have lunch together, you can thank them even though you will not join them.

I miss the food I usually eat for lunch. I miss the sound of everything surrounding me’. From now on, you have to accept the differences you are facing.
Love every single part of your new room, new apartment or new menu for lunch. Try to focus on what you have now rather than focusing on what you lack.
Happy home, happy mind.
