5 Signs You Should Consider Relocating.
Sooner or later in your life, you are going to start thinking about who you are, what you’re doing, what your goals are and where do you see yourself in a few years. It is that moment when you are just analyzing what you’ve done and trying to take stock of the situation. Relocation is among the things that get to your mind. I found myself in this position more than once and feel comfortable enough to give advice on the topic. First, you need to consider whether you’re moving for a personal or professional need. Moving to another city doesn’t always mean that you don’t like the place you’re living in. Could be that you just need a change in your life, in order to develop your career or for a personal growth.
Here you have, in my opinion, some of the signs telling you should consider relocating to a new city.
Your dream is somewhere else.
You have been leaving your passions behind for so many reasons like family, financial security, your beloved one or a steady job. Now it’s time for you to think about yourself, make your dreams come true – or at least trying. Maybe in your city, there is no possibility for that because the industry’s HQ is somewhere else. This would be a really convincing reason to move. You just need to find the Mecca of your field. Of course, you will run into some costs and some difficulties, but can you really give a price to your happiness?
You have always lived in the same city.
It is not necessarily a bad thing, but sometimes it’s good to leave your nest and explore a little bit what’s around. A new place means new people, new experiences, new opportunities. Have you found your place in the world? You may not know what you really want and I think there is no better way to find out than putting yourself out there and see what’s coming. Not to mention the benefits you will have in terms of self-growth and self-consciousness. After all, if you never try you’ll never know.
Nothing is keeping you where you are.
You have no reason to stay. No meaningful relationships, no significant work commitments or career prospects. Making a list of pros and cons it’s a good way to understand whether you’re just stuck in your routine or you’re building something meaningful where you are. If you have the feeling of being stuck, sure thing you need a change. Moreover, after spending a long time in the same place you will most likely feel nostalgia for both the good and bad moments you experienced there. Your whole life is there, everything around reminds you of something you’ve lived. It’s definitely time to move away, and forward.
You are always complaining about your city.
You’re always dissatisfied with one thing or another. You never lose the chance to complain about the traffic, the weather, your neighbours, the cost of living or the lack of activities you like. As you’re tired of something, it is typical to poke holes in it and find reasons to change your opinion. However, complaining is not going to fix it. So set aside your fears and take a risk. Don’t be afraid of taking the wrong decision.
You have a place where you have always wanted to live.
Do you have a place you feel strongly compelled to? An inner calling from someplace. Even a place you’ve never visited but had always been curious about. Don’t be discouraged from people telling you it’s a crazy idea, no-one better than you knows what’s best for your life. Just listen to your guts. Follow your instinct will show you unexpected silvers.
