To choose paradise in return for loneliness.
I faced this problem. I think others like myself might have or will have as well. This feeling of loneliness after you immigrate to a new land. This is of course defeated by befriending coworkers or dating-app afficionados but what if you worked in one continent and also immigrated to another? Loneliness.
The immigrant doesnt have a choice. Its either, stay in a 3rd world country where the people are becoming more and more violent towards secularism and rejecting the very notion of tolerance for a religious one or just plain greed and ignorance combined with a lack of self-reflection. The decreasing quality in life make it hard for the individuals to achieve their future goals. Even a simple thing as starting a family is increasingly hard unless youve a moderately wealthy family in an everdecreasing economy and un-appreciated skilled worker economy.
Stay and change the system? What if its unchangable by one man (or a nation*)? Do you stay and try to improve the land where the people reject you and your ideals everyday or do you leave? I felt neither a sense of nationalistic pride nor the love of my friends and SO were enough to make me stay for a lifetime of misery.
So I decided to move into the US in the worst immigrant political climate of the decade and still, got a greencard regardless of this.
