This is something that came to me very briefly whilst thinking back to a recent social event with friends.
It started with a game in which someone asks a question and you all have to point to the person who most likely relates to the question.
The one I got pointed to for was “Most likely to leave England and never come back”. I didn’t take any offence to it because I always joke how I don’t want to live in England when i’m older and even the other day Katie asked what we were all doing next summer and she said “I won’t ask Ella because we don’t know where you are half the time” which is very true. I’m spontaneous and terrible at staying in one place which you’ve probably gathered. But it also made me think if I got the opportunity now, would I take it?…
I’ve got 3 main things holding me back which are the most common for a lot of people:
My family, I love them to bits. We may be small but the most supportive in any way. E.g. my G’ma told me the other week if I wanted to go live in Australia then bloody do it because she’s not stopping (i’m the only granddaughter she has but does she even want me around?!)
Friends, I feel like I have been very lucky to have such a strong friendship group, even if sometimes we do bicker we always bounce back from it and I think that’s something not so common. They’re amazing and I know I could make other friends but its never going to be the same as that original bond you have.
My boyfriend. Sappy and as some may want to gag at i’d find it hard to go live and start a I think the fact is if I could have my family, friends and boyfriend emigrated with me then YES. But isn’t that the easy answer?
I think in previous past experiences and when i’ve been feeling very down and someone offered me the opportunity then I don’t think i’d of hesitated. Sometimes I relate the bad experiences to being in England and I think that’s where I need to stop.
But my answer (even though I try to be a travel blogger and probably isn’t the right one to convey that image) is no.
If this was given to be maybe 2 years down the line when I might be feeling more settled and ready for that bigger commitment but then yes I would.
Anyway this is just a very small blog post with a big debate to consider and let me know in the comments if you would or wouldn’t and why? What’s holding you back or whats making you want to bugger off? You can’t take anyone with you though as that would make it easier.
