Are you moving against your will?

If you're moving to follow a dream, you might feel excited and as if there are no limits. However, if you're moving because your partner is following his or her dream, you might have feelings of anger and frustration about your future. Badly, these feelings of hopelessness of your life overseas easily cause you to become homesick, isolated, and depressed.
