“You get a strange feeling when you’re about to leave a place. Like you’ll not only miss the people you love but you’ll miss the person you are now at this time and this place, because you’ll never be this way ever again.”
– Azar Nafisi
This struck a chord with my ex-pat self. Usually, we are the leavers and not the er, leavees, but it’s still a melancholic feeling each time it happens.
