Because when you study abroad or travel everything you used to do & that your friends do back home becomes pointless af.
Travelling and living abroad forces you to see life in a new aspect. You find a new need to become cultured and to learn more about other people. Going to the same bar with the same people on the daily becomes repetitive. You acquire a new interest to do things with substance. When you try to have a intelligent conversation or even compare America to another country they won’t understand and probably won’t care.
You feel alone and it sucks.
What’s worse are thr people who study or travel abroad and return BACK THE SAME WAY THEY LEFT. AS IF THE PEOPLE, PLACES, AND HISTORY didn’t change them.
