This website is here to help, to inspire, to empower, and to show you that the time abroad is a great opportunity for personal development if used right.

ShartheLove is a home for all expats, expat partners, and global minds to learn from each other, inspire each other and realize that you are not alone with your problems. In the spririt of SharetheLove, the world is a better place when we are open for change and willing to walk the planet with an open heart and open eyes.

Who am I without my career?

The profession is an important pillar and fulfillment for me. What to do if I can't continue my career as planned?

I feel lost and alone

My new life is exciting but also lonely. How do I create a new home abroad?

The calm before the storm

The move abroad or back is imminent. I would like to prepare for it and consciously control my next steps.

Moving abroad is often associated with loneliness, especially in the beginning. It takes a while to build up a new network and not everyone can understand what is happening in your life. Hence the idea of a Global Coffee Date to meet like-minded people who can sympathize with your life around the world in an informal atmosphere.

The aimless & spoiled expat spouse – an opinion piece

A couple of days ago, I stumbled across yet another media coverage about expat spouses and the fact that those well-educated women are throwing away their career ambitions to follow their husband abroad. Interestingly enough, the comments below the post have been even more prejudiced than the article itself. I wonder why it is so hard to change the image of the expat spouse and what we can do to become recognized as what we are: amazing, brave, solution-oriented globe trotters with a lot of understanding for global issues?
