living abroad is cool when you have your family or the ones you love with you... and it sucks when they [the "other" people] despise you [[racial descrimination]]

We'll of course you will experience a lot of that in real life, your life of finding yourself is just the beginning. Going from country to country is nice because you will meet a lot of new people and gain a lot of friends and through them you will find out what type of person you are. You will have your good times and your difficult times but thats life and you should have fun while you're young. For me after highschool I was like.. meh I don't know what I will do for the rest of my life so I went to college and met a lot of people who were in the same situation as me and got to experience living on my own and taking everything to my own responsibility. Now I want to finish school and get a good job and start my whole new life again (family later on) and its just finding you true self. Right now you're at a setback but you'll find your way soon enough.

mmm not really because the rough times or bad things that happened actually made me a better person. I met a lot of people and this will happen to anyone but you will meet people who will become your friend one day and end up backstabbing you and a lot of conflicts arises while it will suck a lot at first, once you look back at what happened it helps you choose your friends more wisely in the future and in turn will make you a better person in that you already have the knowledge and experience to prevent these things from happening again.

Venturing out on your own is a worthwhile experience and you may feel uncomfortable at first but once you know your way around you'll be glad you did it. You'll have to do things on your own though and everything will be your responsibility so your mistakes you got to learn from and your achievements then you just go from there.

Once you're in an environment you're more comfortable in you'll soon find out that thats your solid ground and everything should go up from there.

I'd only live abroad if I was being tracked down by federal agents.
