Why you should be a dad abroad
Traveling is the greatest thing a person could do to expand their horizons. It enriches you and increases your ability to feel for others in a way that being stationary cannot. But what happens when you are on the verge of moving overseas to start a family? Do the positives outweigh the negatives? What can be gained from such a mammoth upheaval? And why should you even consider it? Here are 10 tips to help with your decisions.
Having a child abroad exposes you to things that you never knew were possible. A sense of dependence on your new family and deeper love for those who seem to be the only constant. Imagine uprooting your entire life and growing as a new family in a new land. Together. You begin to explore your surroundings every day with them, and assuming that you are an open person, explore new and exciting activities.
With those new experiences come the greater experience of meeting new people. And in your particular case, like minded souls who are at or around the same or similar stage in life as you and your young family. You will find that these people are always there to help a new inductee to their country and the good ones tend to stick around. Great business is spawned from enlightened friendships, so be open to this and you may surprise yourself with what unfolds. Just remember to return favours.
With all these new sites, sounds and people that you are exposing yourself to on a daily basis, you are increasing your influence baseline, which flows into inspiration. These new influences will expose your child to a wide array of new people and increase their awareness to the world around them through dialogue and understadning. Your new found inspiration can only in help to develop your child in the right direction.
New cultural understanding
Teaching your child the importance of cultural understanding and pride in a sense of empathy is a beautiful thing. And one that in the current state of the world is proving to be more and more vital to a well-balanced human. Culture is an incredible tool. It allows you enter into others point of view and understand the world in around you. So give your child a greater sense of world worth.
Broader sense of being
How can you truly know who you are as an individual if you do not broaden your optics? The same can be said for being a father. Taking that first step is scary, yes. But the up side is this: You afford yourself the chance to analyse yourself in situations that are uncomfortable. Better yet, you are doing this with a new born. What better way to bond and experience a special growth with your child than both being innocents in a new world.
Take all these points and roll them into one giant life lesson. Think of the stories you will have to tell in your later life. Imagine the priceless wisdoms you can impart on your child as they grow. And think of the knowledge you gained that you can now pass on. All because you took the plunge and moved abroad. Your role as a father is to be a teacher and constant source of inspiration. This can only help you.
Break the chains of normality and set yourself free from the world that held you back. This is with the understanding that your current life stress you out. You are entering a new stage in life, and one that should be enjoyed. Every minute should be relished and every moment captured. Do not let your work take away special memories. There are jobs abroad that can service your life while releasing pressures all over. Just do some research.
This goes without saying. You can eat your way through a new country for three lifetimes over! Exposing your child to new flavours and food combinations gives them a strong sccafold to which they can grow in the culinary world and grow to be less-fussy eater, which will only help in later on.
Be a role model to your child. They look up to you and they see your actions as sacred rule. Is there a better method to illustrating a point to your child that through your own actions? Showing your children that life is filled with opportunities and that the world is a wonderess place is something to be cherished. Of course there are risks, and of course the heights to heaven are high, but isn’t it worth the chance to find happiness.
Seriously, why not? What do you have to lose compared to what you have to gain? The beauty of this modern world is the enhanced world of globalisation. If things do not pan out, exactly how you wished, you can always head home. Think about it.
Good? or Good?
