You ask me time and time again when I am coming home. Haven’t I spent enough years gallivanting around the world and living in a foreign country? Don’t I miss home, the land of the free? Don’t I get homesick? Don’t the weird German cultural quirks drive me crazy? Isn’t learning the language hard?
Your questions seem harmless enough, but it assumes that when I left the United States, I didn’t do so in search of a better life for myself, and I did it as a temporary fix. When our ancestors immigrated to the United States in pursuit of the American dream, when they left their home country to find a better life, I often wonder if they were harassed by people asking when they would return home – to a fate condemning them to unequal rights and squalor? Or do you think their friends and family sent them off with the hope and prayer that wherever they would land, they would find a better life for themselves and their future family?
Maybe it is time to admit to ourselves that the American dream is dead, at least for Americans. ️️I immigrated to Germany to pursue the German dream. Did I find happiness? When am I coming home? Read more in my latest post (link in bio: @wanderingchocobo ) This is my first post answering your questions regarding when I am coming home, if I enjoy living in Munich, and if I’m homesick. Thanks for submitting your questions, I don’t think I ever would have created this post if not for your questions. It came straight from the heart and was surprisingly easy to write. ️Who else moved away from their home country? Are you homesick? Enough to move home? Or are happy where you are?
