A Guide for Introverts: How to Deal with the Stress of Moving to Another Country

a guide for introverts how to deal with the stress of moving to another country

Even if you are moving as close as next door, this constitutes a huge logistics undertaking that takes weeks, if not months of meticulous planning. Do you have enough boxes and are they large enough, will you have to sell some of your possession how much will the movers charge you are just some of the questions that could be troubling you. Add to that an introvert personality and moving hundreds or thousands of kilometers into another country and you get a nightmare scenario for the person moving. It would be more than useful to have some sort of guide to know what to expect and to navigate you through each segment of the move.

A specific kind of help

Regardless if you are an introvert or an extrovert, you are bound to have close friends and family members. They know how much this move means to you so expect them to offer help and accept is with all your heart. However, the last thing you need is a house full of people as not only will this scene freak you out but nothing will get done properly. Some will lounge around while others will be breaking their backs, creating bad blood from the very start.

No, what you need to do is organize the help in such a way that certain people help you with certain phases of the moving process. You know best your friends’ fortes so delegate them with different task. Some can help pack your china because they are tidy and fastidious; while others can help you disassemble a bulksome wardrobe. A hand-picked third group of people will be there on the moving day itself to get everything inside the lorry. This way, you will avoid the detrimental party atmosphere, although you should offer everyone who helped refreshment and snacks.

A transitional survival kit

A transitional survival kit

There is a certain kind of magic around moving abroad but the move itself is not a magic trick, as it takes time. It’s not like you in your old home one day and then the next you miraculously start living in the new home. There is a period of transition that you have to account for while planning. In fact, you should prepare a survival kit of sorts in order to live through those few days. This kit should contain the essentials like shoes, clothes, a toothbrush, a book, your laptop, etc. Basically, these are the things that you use every day and you could not function without. Once the survival kit is packed, you will realize how little you need on a daily basis and that introversion implies a certain kind of frugality.

The legal shenanigans

There are so many different aspects and task related to a move abroad that you want to outsource as many of them as possible. Especially annoying are the legal issues that introverts find extremely difficult to deal with. That’s why hiring migration agents is always a good move to make, pun intended. They will take care of all the legal shenanigans that only multiply because you are moving to a foreign country. Different legislative mean that the paperwork is doubled so best leave this issue to lawyers who have had experience in international law.

The good time you’ve had

Another feeling often associated with introvert people is one of emotional sensitivity. Moving to a new place, a new neighborhood, and a new country means leaving behind an entire life. As memories start pouring in, many people become hesitant and start having second thoughts about the move. In order to avoid such an embarrassing scenario, you should give yourself time for the emotions to settle in.

It is perfectly OK to feel sad and down because you are leaving your old place. This is perhaps the home you grew in so it is perfectly normal to grieve. However, you should start this grievance process months in advance, no matter how cruel that might sound at first. You don’t want to let your emotions get in the way once you start filling the boxes. Actually, some people find it easier not to think about departing the old home at all because they are too busy organizing the move.

Before the new place becomes a home

Before the new place becomes a home

Not many people will tell you this but the scariest moment during the entire move is having to spend the first night at the new place. You have had a hectic day and you are tired but going to sleep will prove hard because of all the excitement. All the boxes and bags have arrived but they are unpacked, making the whole house or the apartment look spooky. In order to generate that homely feeling, unpack the thing that you cherish the most, like a family photo or your favorite piece of jewelry. This way, you will have something to relate to.

We hope that our little guide has demonstrated that there is nothing to be afraid about moving abroad. The people and the culture there are not so hard to fit into if you have brought the stuff from your old home. In fact, your best friend could sleep over if you are still uncertain about your new place.
