Don't keep score

Don't keep score

"I moved here for you..."

This is an age-old argument that makes relationships fall into black holes. Although there may be truth to it, keeping scores with your partner with who has done what for who will only end badly.

Moving abroad for love: Keep an open mind

It's important to keep an open mind about the whole move because the future and your feelings towards each other aren't guaranteed in stone.

Change is difficult for some people but allow yourself to settle in and let positive energy flow so that you'll be more open to adapt.

Remember that you did this for you both, not just for them

Remember that you did this for you both, not just for them

You moved into that country in order to be with the person you love.

Having the occasional resentment or annoyance about uprooting your life doesn't make you a bad person, however, harboring it and keeping it all in without trying to communicate it to your partner kindly, will only lead to disaster.

Be honest and make mutual decisions

Every big decision you make needs to be mutual and where you both don't have any hidden feelings about it.

Disagreement on trivial things is normal but decisions about housing, cars, visa applications are things where you both need to be completely honest and willing to compromise over.

Never harbor resentment

Never harbor resentment

Having to learn a new language, leave your job, your friends, and family behind is totally valid to feel frustrated over. However, you can't use this same excuse over and over again whenever a problem pops up between you and your partner.

It's completely unfair to your relationship, so it's best to communicate this with compassion.

Think about their feelings too

As strange, you also have to consider how this whole moving thing will be for your partner.

You'll be too busy trying to settle and adjust for yourself that you might forget how this is affecting them.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!


Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.


Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.


Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
