I was away for almost 4 years to study in the UK leaving my parents and siblings behind. I left when I was 18. At first I was alright thinking of the advantages I have leaving in a foreign country..All the opportunities I have in my hands :-) did my best in school. Of course there's time that I gave up emotionally missing my parents and siblings and thinking my life was not that hard after arriving in a foreign country. All the things that you used to do and having your parents beside you giving all your needs and everything. It really makes you miss them big time but hey theyre just a phone call away so cheer up! You will be home soon when you finish what you were there for :-). so stay strong my friend and take care always..

It is part of the growing process. Soon you will get used to it as yo uhave to spend most of your love working and staying away from yoru parents.

i live away from my parents for a long time now. We decided to pursue my studies in a reputable school and university in a city which is far away to our home. I have been away from them for almost 8 years now. But i do visit them during long holidays and special occasions like birthdays, christmas, holy week and reunion. My siblings are with me now. They stayed with me because they wanted also to pursue their higher education here. happy mylotting!

Hi huangshamanman1314, My parents live about 30 minutes travel with car away from my place. We have the same local gouvernment, but live in a different locality with different names. We see each other once a month, when ever we can. But that is not easy to make. My mother work as assistnce nurse so am I and we have different working scheduels. So if I am free of a weekend she will work. This goes for my sisters to, we are four sisters with the same professions and it is not easy to find a god time for us to meet up. There is always one or two of us who have to take a day of. Like christmas, I am working this year, but the rest are free. There is not easy to be free from work on christmas, so I have decided not to even try...becouse I have no longer any smal kids, and the family with smal kids goes first when it comes to christmas and take a day of. But we do talk on phone. And I try to go to se them wen it is possble.

Last April of this year I left Philippines to move here in the US to be with my husband. It has been 8 months since I left. I miss them but not that much because I see them everyday on cam and updating each others activities. This is the first time being away from my parents. My mom always tell me that she missed me badly. I can not blame here, I am the only princess in our house! hehe. Hoping to fly back to my country after 2 years.

I am also living far from my parents. I have moved to a foreign country with my husband. I do miss them but I e-mail and phone them regualarly so it is easier for us. Sometimes I feel sad as I am unable to look after them now as I am away but I guess that is life, anyway I always think if them.
