Adapting to life as a Georgia immigrant

You may be one of many people in Georgia who thrive on change. Then again, you might be the type of person who gets comfortable in his or her surroundings and wants things to remain as much the same as possible for as long as possible. Most people would describe themselves as falling somewhere in between.  

If you recently arrived in Georgia as an immigrant from another country, you are no doubt going to experience many changes whether or not you want to. For one thing, you are now living in an entirely new place, which is likely quite different in many ways from your original homeland. You may be learning a new language and must adapt to a new legal system.  

Tips that may be helpful 

No two journeys are exactly the same, but chances are that you can relate to the experiences of other immigrants, especially those who came to the U.S. from the same country as you. The following list includes practical ways to keep stress levels low as you transition into your new lifestyle

  • You may have brought a lot of luggage with you when you traveled to the United States and had many items shipped or flown here. However, if you accept the fact that there are also many things you will leave behind, it may help minimize your feelings of longing for things you once had. 
  • Not all the things you leave behind will be physical objects. You will also have to say goodbye to some family members, to the climate you were accustomed to and to a culture you may have known since childhood. 
  • Change isn't always bad. New surroundings, a new job, a new spouse and new friends may add joy and support to your new life in the United States. 
  • If you resist new ideas and new ways of doing things, you might often feel anxious and stressed. By trying to keep an open mind, trying new things and welcoming new people into your life, you may find yourself enjoying your new lifestyle more.  

You hopefully have connected to people who can help you become fluent in English and answer questions you might have about local, state or federal laws. If a problem arises, such as complications regarding a visa or some other legal issue, you can turn to an immigrant advocate for support.
