Homesickness after 17 years!

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Yep! after 17 years living in the USA, I realize that I miss my hometown, my family and my friends that I grew up with! I was so happy to move here in 1994, it changed my life for the better and I will never regret it. But, it seems that people change through life and your needs as well. After divorcing from my wife, I end up alone and underemployed...there's no reason for me to stay. Thinking about moving back to Canada.

Any people having to same situation? :blush:

Never experienced that but what you write about is actually very common. Many people want to return to the place they spent their formative years when they retire or find themselves alone and without compelling reasons to remain in a new place. Why not take a vacation there for a while and see if maybe you might really be happier there. Good luck! :)

Oh! I'm constantly there! spending about 2-3 months a year in my hometown. So this should be a good indication where my head is at. :whistle:

This is a tough one. I am 'older' grown kids etc and I chose to be here but I do wonder if ''down the road'' I might change my mind too.

I guess it will depend on what is ''next'' in your life, whether you are still 'corporately climbing' or are ready to have a family.
