I’ve never really felt the connection to Sweden. I love my home country and there’s not a different place I would’ve rather grown up in. We get free education, healthcare and so many benefits in life. My childhood was amazing and I never felt unsafe. However, there’s just something in me that knows I won’t live in Sweden for a long time. It feels a bit depressing maybe, but also normal. Many Swedes decide to move abroad because they can’t handle the darkness and the cold. I’ve always been more of a summer person as well and the cold makes me so tired.
I wonder how it’ll be in the future, when the world becomes more globalized and it’ll be easier to move around. Will we all be living in different countries at one point of our lives? Or will we appreciate what we have even more, when we’ve seen the world. Usually you appreciate your home more. What I really appreciate is salt licorice. Thank God Sweden has it - what would my life be without it.
But winter in my hometown is the prettiest and no one can say anything else.
