Emigrate from Germany sounds simple, is that it?
No, definitely no! Probably the easiest part of the whole procedure was to separate myself from my material things like my furniture, my car and my apartment. Within less than a month, I sold everything. Luckily, I found a way to do my job online, so I’m not tied to either Germany or any other place, so it was possible for me to start a financial foundation for my project.
The emotional part, however, the separation of family and friends, that was and is the bitter part of the story. For to leave Germany and follow my dreams and wishes all alone over 8000 km was probably the most selfish thing I have ever done in my life. And as you can already hear, this separation from loved ones will always be the hardest thing to do.
That’s why I’m really happy that we live so modern and that daily contact with Germany has not changed so much for me. Of course you can not see them in live every week, but thanks to Skype and WhatsApp I have the opportunity to communicate at any time.
Yet how does one teach his family to wish to live
abroad? For me it was so difficult to teach them the whole thing gently that I just fell into the house with the door and also left no room for discussion. Really not nice, but I am rather “short and painless” knitted.
The last few weeks in Germany and the first few months in Mexico were emotionally very difficult for me and without a very special person at my side, I would certainly not have kept up the whole thing. Sure, what am I complaining about if, as I say, I live according to my motto “Live your Dreams”, one or the other may ask, but I was completely “beside the track”, even though I absolutely wanted it. Feeling guilty towards my beloved and longing for them still gnawed and gnaws at me daily.
However, I had and have the special luck to have
an unique person by my side who has always been there for me and is still there for me at any time. He has always supported me in my endeavors and especially in this case his well-being under mine, as he helped me to follow my dreams to 8.437 km away Cancún. How grateful I am to him and the fact that I have had him in my life for at least 11 years now, probably every one of you can imagine. It is damned important to have someone at your side who supports every project, crazy as it is, unconditionally and always has an open ear.
Meanwhile, I fly every 6 months to Germany and the “longing for the loved ones” is therefore more or less “limited”.
Why I’m telling you all this has the reason that I not only see the difficulty in the financial situation, which of course has to be clarified before, but just the emotional part is not to be ignored. I would certainly have quit my mission “Live your Dreams” after not quite 3 months, if i did not have this strong support.
