  1. Try to answer the questions “why do I want to leave” and “why do I want to stay”clearly and as concretely as possible.

    Let your answers necessarily include not only logical and reasonable arguments, but also absurd, illogical, funny — everything that comes to mind when you think about it.

    This will help you take a slightly detached view of your own motivation and understand it.

    Maybe you'll realize that you have a really good reason to stay here. Or maybe, on the contrary, you will see the fears that hinder you, and include in the relocation plan new steps related to overcoming these dangers.

    Moving to another country is a complex and resource-intensive task. Therefore, it is better to try to resolve internal contradictions and conflicts before moving, because after that you may not have enough time and energy for this.

  2. Situational question

    1) Travel to this country for a certain period of time: a week, a month. Take a closer look. Very often they want to move after reading articles and seeing enough photos. Don't do that.

    2) Connect with people from there. Not all mentalities will suit everyone. Adaptation is a very difficult thing, and the feeling of loneliness will make you go back, and there will be no time to return. If you are not doing it solo, then you can already make sure that you are suitable for each other with this company and whether he/they will get along there.

    3) Make sure that your profession is relevant there, and you will be able to find a use for yourself.

    4) Trite, but make sure that you know the language well enough. Plus – whether it is comfortable for you to communicate on it all the time. It will also be useful to communicate with native speakers, search in your city for circles of interests where they chat for practice.

    5) Find out the experience of those who have already moved. Listen to reviews, find out problems, and the amount of money needed for a comfortable start.

    6) Save up this amount of money/find an employer who will make the move. Apply for the necessary documents. Again, banal stuff. But this point brings a lot of problems that you can be unprepared for, considering that knowledge of the language and desire with money will be enough.

    7) Move.

    If you find it difficult to complete all these points, are you sure that moving is necessary? Are you sure it's there? Doubts? Keep going back to step 1 until you get a specific answer.

  3. I'll write about my experience.

    To decide to move to another country, you just need to make up your mind. If you read the forums, try to list all the problems and avoid them, you will never make up your mind. In my case, everything was simple: I wanted to move for a long time, but when I started thinking about moving seriously, I realized that it was very nervous and almost impossible. But a year ago I was sent a job in the Czech Republic, I went, maybe not quite seriously. And then everything happened by itself.

    Yes, I left for a smaller salary, not knowing the language. Of course, it helped that my friends were already living in Brno, but it wasn't a huge relief. And it turned out that everything is much simpler than it seems. There is a procedure for processing documents, but it is simple and regulated. Most of the problems were with property in Russia, but this is also not a nightmare. And already there were almost no problems here.

    But you need to understand that I am an introvert, so I don't communicate with almost anyone except my family. For sociable people, there are companies here, but I can't tell you anything about them.

    Here I found what I was looking for: a quiet life in a small town, accessible nature (there are hills all around, mountains nearby, a mild climate, marked tourist trails). Now the move does not look like a terrible nightmare for me, as it does for the whole family. It's very interesting and not scary at all :).

  4. I have two sisters who moved abroad with their husbands and children (Poland and Portugal).

    Actually, it's not so difficult to decide, the main thing is to know exactly where you are going, and not to draw a mirage for yourself. If you already have demand / job offers there (in both cases, the IT sector), conditions for the availability of housing (rented), then it is not difficult to move. Especially if you were offered a job by Western employers.

    The question is really different: how to get along abroad? Poland okay, there are a lot of Ukrainians in Wroclaw, and if you are not at all ignorant of the whole “scoop”, then communication with fellow countrymen is somehow necessary. In Portugal, this is much more difficult, although there are large Russian-speaking diasporas there. Best of all, moving abroad is seen by children, but adults, it happens, do not care what the child's opinion is (and the fact that he will grow up alone in a golden cage), the main thing is that a personal manya world is realized.

  5. The longer you think about it, the more likely it is that you won't leave.

    You need to make a clear plan of action, save up a little money and move forward to your dream.

    People tend to change their habitat, it is even useful. Antelopes go hundreds of kilometers in search of places with an abundance of food, so why can't people replace their favorite places with those where you want to live, build a family, and make a career? Rahul-get out of doubt and go!

  6. You probably need to ask yourself first: “What country can I move to?” If you're an IT guy ,it's easier. There is professional emigration, a Jewish quota, family reunification, and a green card. Of course, you can work in greenhouses in Poland or as a house painter in Lithuania, but you can't bring your family with this money.
