    Lonely immigrant

    Before I moved to the other part of the world, I always use to wonder why people say it's hard to adjust or settle down in a whole new place. and Ofcourse I've never thought about it a lot.
    Back home I was a very social person. By social I mean I had a whole bunch of friends with whom I use to hangout and make memories. As soon as I learned about moving I was both sad and happy. Sad because it's hard to leave a place where you grow up and people whom you grew up with. Happy because you'll experience new place, people and make more memories. Specially for a social person like me. But ...

    It'll take some time but if You go out, talk to people and get involved in the community, things will get better and You will find friends. I feel You though, I moved to a country where I didn't even speak the language (English is my third language) so, for the first couple of years I was sort of just starring LOL Good Luck! : )

      It's very hard to make friends here. I've tried but it didn't worked out so well. No matter what we say but some countries are still didn't get over the racissism.

      I agree with You, racism is still prevalent in many countries and communities but there are many people who do not put-up with racism. And especially a lot of the younger people, they tend not to see colours and nationalities as the older generations

      Not just that, just moving in a small town and you're an outsider for the next ten years. I  lived in many different states; NY, CO, NV, WA, OR,HI & AZ

    Immigrant are usually easier for people, who move to another country, starting off as university oversea students, because as student you have the support network required. By the time you graduate you would have been here for four years and is pretty use to the place and probably have a life here. A lot of countries now think oversea students are the best immigrants and prefer them over other sort. Other immigrants, frequently even find them self living in the country for years and still can't speak the language or can't fit into the society and the most common is, people who are maybe an engineer back home and in the new country is at most a cleaner, which make you wonder why they leave to begin with. Many people that migrate from one first world country to another, eventually return to their original country, due to that reason. Usually it is those from 2nd or 3rd world country or come as refugee that would choose to stay in the country they migrate to in definite. My uncle moved to the US for a while, mostly because he got an idea US is a very nice place. But Taiwan isn't a bad country either, so, after he went to US, for a year or two and found this sort of bullshit, he just returned to Taiwan.

    At Taiwan for example, we don't want this for migrants, our migration policy has always been, those who want to come, come on a working or student visa, you can apply for citizenship after 5 years if u are rich or has university degree, 10 years for others. Also allow people married to a Taiwan citizen or somebody here on working visa or children of such person can come on Family visa and stay as long as their spouse or parent live in the country  As a result of this policy, Taiwan never heard of immigrants, who struggle to fit in, even after years in the country or immigrant that is successful in their country and a taxi driver in Taiwan.
