These last few weeks have been an emotional roller coaster for me. I think homesickness is slowly creeping in. I see all the fun my friends are having back home and hear all the updates on what is going on with them and just feel so sad. This last weekend was a close friends wedding. This friend is so close and special to me and missing out on her big day was really upsetting!
I think in my head, did we make the right decision? Is leaving our friends and family worth being here? Living here is stressful and I feel like such an outsider in Kuwait! I’m trying to stay positive and tell myself it just takes time to settle in. And really, we haven’t settled in yet. We still haven’t moved into a proper apartment, so technically we are living in suitcases still. I think that’s one of the most frustrating things. Who knew it would take this much time to settle in!
But I just can’t help but think if we have made the right decision? Will it be worth it in the end? There are many people who would want to have this opportunity like what we got. I know this entry is really depressing, but I just couldn’t write about anything else. I’m trying to get out of this funk and will write happy thoughts.
