One day, I was tidying up some boxes after move number 12 (I think it was number 12 !!!).
I found in my hand one of those adaptors that you need when you move to a new country. You know those plugs with funny multiple pointy pins ? I am sure every expat has at least 20 of, and can NEVER remember which one is for which country.
I was holding this object in my hand, looking curiously at its multiple pins.
I realized how that object was a great metaphor for expats who have to adapt abroad.
Essentially, the plug works by connecting two ways, two worlds, and it is exactly what we have to do to make our social life function abroad. To feel that we belong to the new community.
When you use an adaptor, you enable your device (your world) to connect to the energy (outer world) and everything works!
I invite you to Join Our Free Webinar and learn how the “universal adaptor” can work for us.
