Was I confident a few years ago? Nope…
I always wanted to be, but deep inside I had lots of doubt. I pretended to be confident, but when the time came, I stepped back.
Am I confident?
It is still a tricky question, but I can say that I am now.
Well…. moving to a foreign country can change you a lot. Not in a bad way, not at all. To be honest, my best move was to get my suitcase and fly to London.
Don’t get me wrong, it was extremely difficult at the beginning. I had to start my life again. I had to give up on a lot of things. My life, my city, my family, my friends, my job. Everything.
Have I regretted it? Absolutely not! This was my best decision.
Ended up in a totally new environment (new currency, language gap just to name a few) force you to leave your comfort zone and do what you have to do.
I have never walked around and left my CV in places to get a job – before.
I have never gone to a gym and went home without a membership because I was not sure how to do the reg – before.
I had to realize if I want to leave a full life in a different country, I cannot be shy. I have to step up and put doubts in myself at the side. And here I am, 5 years later as an Office Manager and Marketing Student.
I was fed up not to get what I want only because I was not brave enough. It took me years though, but I can say now I am proud of myself where I am at the moment, what I have achieved so far from scratch.
