I was surprised to know that a friend has gone back to work in the Middle East again. He is a member of a cpa network so he works in a large accounting firm in Qatar. I’m sure gets a good pay, but family-wise, I can’t imagine the homesickness and other struggles he encounters every day for being so far from his family. It isn’t easy to be distanced from the people you love, but because if the need for a more stable income, for Filipinos, to work outside the country is a common thing to do. I wish the years would go fast for my friend, so that there will be a reunion for him and his family the soonest!
