Wherever one goes in life, it seems to me, that it can be wondrous or dreary. The same place can be good or bad, depending on numerous factors. Way back in the 1980s I saw a movie in which one of characters said, “Wherever you go; there you are.” I believe the film was Buckaroo Banzai. I think that makes an important point. That granted, having met a number of people during my life, a lot of people have reported that an individual tends to do better in a location which is well suited to that person. Some countryside folk move to cities. Now and then, a person changes nations. In many cases, a slightly different neighborhood in the same town can provide the solution.
Preferences can relate to matters of climate, or work opportunities, education or lifestyle – one may well feel most comfortable being ‘normal’ or ‘the odd one’ depending on how one is.
Everyone knows this, but somehow people can lose perspective. Perspective loss can happen to anyone, but what triggers it varies. Luckily, even though it can be lost, proper perspective regarding any situation can often be regained.
