“Living abroad gives me the chance to finally be incomplete. I was always pushed (by myself and others) to be complete, to be perfect, to live everybody else’s lives. I can now fulfill my desire for incompleteness, for imperfectness, and enjoy just being”
"Living abroad is such an amazing experience. Getting to know knew places, cultures and people, increases our sense of community. On the other hand, it is a constant of opposite feelings: feeling happy for the opportunity, against these sense of incompleteness, as we leave part of our history in another country. It's the fullfilment experience of building a new life and the desire to be at your hometown, around all you've known since birth. You'll never feel complete again."
