    Do you ever get homesick?

    I used to live in Scotland and moved to England to be with my partner 3 years ago. I love my life, but I get down in the dumps sometimes as I miss my parents and brother so much. I try to see them 3 or 4 times a year. Do you ever get homesick?

    Yes, I get homesick a lot! It feels horrible because I feel like I'm not spending enough time with my family. Phone calls and a couple of visits just don't seem to be enough.

    I used to get homesick in the early days but over time that has faded. Your comment did make me smile though, you try to see your family 3 or 4 times a year...for me read once every four years if I'm lucky.

    The cost of flights out of New Zealand is way over the cost of flying from the UK here. Hence the long gap between visits.

    We are lucky we live in an age of instant, well nearly, communication...150 years ago I'd be waiting months for a letter!

    Yes, homesick for California.  My beaches, palm trees, in-n-out burgers.  Oh yeah.  I miss it all!  Even traffic...sorry OK!!

    I don't get home sick... I get memory sick. I miss being a little girl. I miss fearing nothing and believing in everything. I miss my good health and my closeness I once shared with nature. I miss being... or at least feeling "free".

    Yes, I do.......often, as a traveler.

    The truth is this.........I found myself in my hometown a couple of years ago.

    It was nothing like I remembered it.  My Grandparents were all passed away, my brothers all moved away.  My own children had not been reared there........

    The town was not what I longed for, it was an era, a childhood, a memory, a past.......that I wished to recapture.

    To see my hometown, without those of my childhood was far worse than the homesickness!

    It is can not go back to childhood or to yesterday, no matter how much we long to do so.

    Earlier this week, I had to recall that visit, just to stop a new wave of homesickness.  You can not go simply can not, no more than you can keep your children little.  Life is lived in a forward motion.

    Yes, sure.
    It is a normal feeling  when you leave your home.
    But it deffers from one to another, some people will forget home if they enjoy their life somewhere else.
    Mostly, people will miss their home whatever the price.
    At last, we should satisfy that it was our decision to leave home, and we should be responsible for.
