Can you believe it, its been 3 years since I moved to this amazing, exciting country that I now call home. Some tips I acquired during that time, that I would love to share with you.
Living in Israel means living on a fast paste. People and situations come and go, only very special moments and people will last longer in your life. Its hard to enjoy living here, if you do not adjust to this fast paste and learn to let go of situations that you can not change.
Being an Olah (new immigrant), I always tried to fit in a certain way. However, during my three years in Israel I learned to embrace my difference. Believe me, people here will appreciate the fresh and different energy you bring to the table.
„Am Yisrael Chai“, in every aspect. You will go through a lot of ups and downs, and you know what; That is amazing. You will grow in a way, you are never able to, in any other country in the world. The most important thing, is to always stay positive and happy. Learn to grow from every situation.
I guess its natural to compare. We compare our Ex’s with each other, our favorite pairs of shoes even the restaurants we are eating in. One aspect I still need to learn, is to STOP COMPARING Germany to Israel. It doesn’t make since, but I still catch myself doing it. Israel is a new country, carrying a new language and people from all over the world. It is located in the Middle East and clearly has nothing to do with Deutschland. Major point you need to check on; Stop comparing Israel to any other country in the world.
Everybody in Israel has an opinion and that itself is amazing. However, make sure to ALWAYS double check when getting advice or asking a question. Always make up your own mind. Whether you are just asking for the direction or for a life advice. Learn to have your own knowledge and opinion.
Thank me later 🙂
Pretty much applicable to every situation. If you want something in life, be persistent. If you will work on something very hard and want it very badly it will come to you. Try to always keep going, even if it seems difficult.
Trust me, its just not worth it.
Sometimes you will feel down. Sometimes you will feel like giving up and just going back to your safe place (basically back to Mom & Dad). Just try to always give yourself love. Being confident and loving yourself is the best medicine for feeling lonely and down. Its something you will need to work on, it will take up lots of your time. At the end of the day, you are truly your one and only friend. So give yourself that love you deserve.
Because why should’t you.
