It is funny and sad to read the outraged reviews of people who moved to another place in the hope of a better life and received no fewer problems than at home. Did they have Google disabled or had no way to find out more pros and cons about the country they were moving to?

We are all masters of vying to tell how bad everything is in the country (substitute the country where a person lives) and enthusiastically tell how everything is good somewhere. But precisely because there is a saying “it is Good there where we are not present”. Beautiful photos, movies, information about the number of salaries abroad, reviews of people who went there (most often as brides) and got a good job, even a month-long vacation trip-this is only part of the mosaic, which is most often cited as arguments by future emigrants. But the fact that you’ve only seen in passing can be enough to idealize.
This is where the trap is hidden
This is similar to the candy-bouquet period of relationships when people are so fond of idealizing each other and not noticing their shortcomings. But, as with relationships, this stage passes very quickly once you start living together. Here and teeth someone did not clean, and the dishes are not cleaned, and snores at night. Moving is almost the same. After a short WOW-period, gray days come and one by one new side of his “pink dream” begins to open up to the hapless emigrant. High taxes, problems with a foreign language, the first run-ins with the bureaucratic machine, the lack of familiar favorite things, a completely different mentality. Everyone has their own list.
The truth is that all this can greatly reduce the ardor of our dreamer, or even completely bring him to depression and the desire to return home to his usual world, where, as it turned out, everything was not so bad. Many return, and then right and left angrily tell how bad it is to live there and how difficult everything is for foreigners. And no one said that it would be easy, the person before the trip made it up for him/herself. And now the person blames everyone and everything for not turning ON his mind before emigrating but flying like a moth on the wings of his/her fantasies.
Moving Happily Believers
Unfortunately, every year the number of people who believe that the grass is greener is increasing. People are looking for their place, they want to live better. But, unfortunately, very many of these dreamers are broken by reality. Well, if after that a person can somehow recover and arrange their life. What if it doesn’t? If it leaves such a deep scar in his/her soul that he/she will forever stop dreaming, stop trying to change something for the better? But everything can be different.
Dreams are great! You need to dream. But no one forbids you to find out more information about the country in which you are going to live, in order to get as close to reality as possible about the local features, advantages, and difficulties.
There is a simple formula for happiness that always works:
Reality – expectations = satisfaction
