A sudden move

3 years ago, my husband was given the opportunity to work for the prominent logistics company, DHL. I had mixed emotions. I felt relieved knowing that it’s going to be good pay job, but just the thought that he’d be relocated to a remote area and that he’d be miles away from us, I didn’t like the idea. What else can I do, he’s very much eager and signed the contract right away. Besides, I am not the type of person who would hold someone else’s wish.

Not only that, I also had to give up my job which I had for over 9 years. There was no other option but to go home with my daughter then, Deye. In two weeks time, my husband left Bahrain for his new job. I was left alone with my daughter plus the furniture and other stuff that we had possessed for many years. That also I had to think of. Most of the things which I think will be impractical to take home, I’ve sold them except for the small things that were given to us like the personalized anniversary wine glasses. Too bad they broke before they could even reached me. I really felt bad giving up majority of our belongings. Some of them were wedding gifts. If I had other choice, I would keep and take them all with me.

  1. It’s unfortunate on your part. However, try to embrace this change. Fighting it will only hurt you more. Change is good and once you embrace the change, you’ll be able to see the great things it will or has already brought you. Good luck on your new adventure! I’m sure it’ll pay off in the end! And at least you have your daughter to help you through this life change.
