Logistically, moving back went smoothly. However, psychologically I think it will take a while to adjust. The first week, perhaps was a combination of my cold, 3 hours time difference, and the resistance to accept the fact that i moved back home and have to leave my friends in Toronto, it felt so surreal. the feeling is like I was either dreaming right now or it has been a dream.
I thought moving back would be simple and easy as I'm from here and familiar with here. Opposite to what I have expected, everything seems familiar but is so unfamiliar. I felt like a human who lived in another planet with Aliens and now come back to Earth.
There's a unique flow of each city. Now after a year and a half in Toronto, I adapted the flow of Toronto. Though I'm from Vancouver, I've disconnected from the flow here. It will take a while to pick it up. I guess you can't switch from one flow to another just like that.
It took me 1/2 year to pick up the flow in Toronto enduring the torture of feeling not belonged. Hopefully, it will take shorter time to get through coming back.
