In one of the FB ex-pat groups, I saw a question posted that made me reflect on how far I've come in my journey and what it took for me to get there:

"Why do I feel guilty about leaving? Like not staying in the struggle to change America. Can anyone relate?"

Although not everyone experiences it, Survivor's Guilt is a real thing. I felt it when I started doing better than my siblings and my peers. It was one of the reasons that I didn't leave and stay gone in 2002.

In fact, I returned, settled down, and didn't leave again until 2016.

But it took a lot for me to leave then. And I've been gone ever since.
