I am working far apart from my family. My family is now staying at my hometown which I need 2 hours flight time to reach there. Sometimes,I miss my parents and siblings a lot and always question myself about the purpose of staying far from them yet miss them a lot. I don't know whether what I am doing is worth for the money I have earned or not. What I usually do when I miss my parents is call them up and have a nice chat with them. If there is any cheap ticket to back my hometown,I will plan for a few days leaves and fly back to my hometown and spend quality time with them. I suppose these are I can do for them. What else more? Any ideas? Please feel free to comment,thanks in advance.

its really hard being away from your family.I live in a small town and the majority here have to go away for work.Men here have to leave their families for months at a time just to provide for them.Its really hard especially around the holidays-thats when i find its the lonliest-The phone is great because you can always call to say hi-keep the letters going at a steady pace-contact is the main thing-just keep the contact going and it will get easier

Hey,yenwie84!As a matter of fact,I have the same situation.It will take me two hours' lift to go back home.And sometimes I miss my parents a lot.At this time I always send them a message by mobile phone or phone them.I often tell them some things happened here in my school.Also,I ask them about the things at my hometown.Every time I go back home,I often talk with them for a long time.hahaha

I experienced being away from my parents when im studying in college because i wanted to practice being independent. Whenever i missed them i text them or call them using my celphone or sometimes i drop by our house everyday just to show them that they are never took for granted. Its a hard feeling to stay away from your home and family because you grew up as a whole. There is no place like home.=)

I just look over our family pictures and stare at them for a couple of minutes. I feel a bit contented with looking at their faces.
