PotatoxHime :  do you have any plans on moving back closer to your family? The feelings of loneliness can easily turn into depression so be careful. Is there any way you could make friends outside of work? Expand your social life?

I’m similar to you, but I chose to be in a different country with my husband because I can’t stand to be in my home country and with my original family. I can still somewhat relate to your feeling of “loneliness”. I think that’s why I joined this forum! People here can be judgemental but are mostly very, very enthusiastic about weddings. Let us be your family for the time being!

I know how you feel, as I am/was in the exact same situation. On another continent, living in his country. What made me sad, was that none of my friends from overseas attended the wedding.  

And another thing was the dress. I felt really depressed and sad. For all the other things I had my fiance, so I could talk to him about things. But the trying on dresses alone felt dreadful. Fortunately, in the end, my mum flew over to go dress shopping with me. The rest I organized alone, with the help of my now husband. 

I know that some of us have so many expectations concerning weddings and it can make really sad when we see friends on social media having what we’ve been envisioning. Maybe you could just take a lot of pictures when going to see venues or decidind on other things and share with the people back home, so they can help you decide and this way you can share those moments?

Look at it this way… it may look like your cousin has a lot of support, but I’m sure to others you look like you’re having this awesome career adventure. Few people get to experience a completely different culture and travel like you. 

You may think, “yes, okay, but it’s not that awesome! I get lonely and homesick and really hate it sometimes.” But… that’s how it always is when you look at it from somebody else’s lense. Especially from a social media filter. You never fully know somebody’s struggles. 

That said, I’m sorry this process hasn’t made you less lonely. 🙁 I hope it gets better.
