About Tom moving to Germany

Yes, it's maybe normal, that people are curious - and they all care for you, maybe, some even as much as they care for themselves. But sometimes you might need more support, or just less negativity.

When Tom decided to take the big plunge and come live with me in Germany, he got the run-around from most people he knew. Only one member of his family was truely supportive, wishing him luck and happiness - and a few friends admitted to honestly be missing him.

Here's what some people said:

  • you don't speak German
  • you won't even have a job, you'll depend on Karin totally
  • Germans are unfriendly, remember the Nazis
  • you are a bad husband, for leaving your wife
  • you are a bad father, for leaving your daughter with her mom

And this is, what nice people would say:

  • this is a great opportunity, to live in a foreign country for some time
  • if you really love somebody, you'll want to be with her anywhere
  • in case something goes wrong, we'll all be still here for you
  • Germany is a beautiful country, you'll love it
  • we'll be missing you, but we want you to be happy
