We All Make Stories, but Are They True?

When we move to a new place we often explain people’s behavior based on our previous cultural experience. Stories that we create may be very far from reality!

In this video, we talk about how we can stop creating stories (and often torturing ourselves with misunderstandings) and instead enjoy discovering a new culture.

What about you? Have you had an experience like this? What happened after? We want to read about it! Share it with us in the comments below.

If you enjoyed this video, share it with your expat friends (or any friends and family!). That would be great and really appreciated!

More so, if you want to find more interesting content on how to feel at home no matter where you live, sing up for our email updates on the top of this page.

Live, love, and create across the globe!
