I am an Expat Spouse
Who you are
You left your job, your friends, your relatives and your whole life behind when you decided to follow your spouse into a new country for a new job opportunity.
You have been trying to cope with your new reality and challenges, but even after everything material is settled down, you feel a sense of emptiness. You cannot find your place in the world. You don’t have a job for yourself and this makes you feel a sense of loss of identity. Or even if you have a job, the cultural differences make it hard for you to adapt.
On the top of it all, you are supposed to be the one who supports the well-being of your working spouse and children but you wonder how to accomplish this if you feel disempowered and lost.
What your issues tend to be
Some of the most common challenges that you are experiencing are:
- You feel that you are no longer who you used to be and you don’t fit anywhere anymore
- Loss of personal and family support network
- Loss of personal income
- Loss of your job and your identity
- Not knowing how to express your own identity in society and local community.
- Linguistic barriers
- The culture shock was bigger than you expected
- Feelings of loneliness and isolation, your spouse works too much and your children seem to have their own life
- You wonder what the meaning of YOUR life and what is next for you
What you need most right now
You need to find yourself again and take back your life despite the challenges that you are faced with.
You need to get in touch with your highest aspirations (your transpersonal self) to reconnect with who you really are and your life’s purpose.
If you are guided to realize that you are not your emotions neither your psychological functions you will be capable to overcome the negative patterns that you are experiencing.
By being in touch with your transpersonal self you will become an observer of the situation and you will expand your identity beyond your personal biography, nationality, status and personality to finally realize that peace, wisdom, purpose and oneness are in your nature and have been there always for you.
The meditative awareness will bring you back to your center and will ground you in the certainty that you will feel happy, no matter what is going on around you.
The result of this process will bring resilience, self-confidence, self-compassion, self-control and your life back no matter where you are!
