Do you think working abroad can really help you for all your needs and wants? I don't think so...maybe there some points that it's right because the value of money there is bigger than peso. But the thing is it's the most hardest thing to do in your life anyway that's my my own's really hard being far from your cannot pay any value..i guess contentment in life helps a lot for the satisfaction of what you have now.

I'm fortunate enough to have the experience of working abroad for an extended amount of time. It was a difficult yet rewarding experience for me. I lived in Japan for almost a year and a half, and it was difficult being alone in a foreign land, but I learned a lot about a different culture, gained knowledge in my chosen career field, and compensated well enough for it. What's more, the experience helped me gain a level of maturity in life that I never had before, being responsible for your own life and learning to take care of yourself in a foreign land. Yes it can help you not just financially but in your growth as a person. I would recommend you go for it if it's not too long a time period. You will gain much more than financial stability from the experiences it will impart on you. Good luck!

It is definately Money. But one more thing is that impression on people. If a person is working abroad with less knowledge then he is more preferable than others. I don't know why people think that those who work abroad has a vast knowledge.

i agree with you, the only thing you can achieve there is money, but you will loose your loved things, my hubby wants to settle abroad, the mere thinking make's me shiver, my brother is already in tashkent, my and my sister are in india, even if i choose to settle to a different country, we all three will be in three different countries, i think of my parents who are lonely, well i think i will loose their love, hardly after 1-2 years i shall be able to meet them, oh its too difficult and scary. i just pray to god that i good earn better here so that i dont have to settle abroad, still i have satisfied my self by asking him that i shall not stay there for more than 5-6 years, but i still think the time i will loose will not be recovered.
