I agree with Eric Katan-ko,
Time to cut your losses and find a better place. I bet you would be able to find somewhere much better and cut out all that other stuff that is happening. I hope you find something soon and much better!
To respond to the original post...living abroad has changed me.
It first happened really, when I was travelling abroad for three months alone. I personally feel that EVERYONE should travel abroad alone for at least a month. Why? Because you learn so much about yourself. You rely on yourself, you learn how to open up to people and I learnt a lot about my gut instick. (Always trust that feeling by the way!)
What has living abroad done for me?
-I now see the world from another perspective (culture). People basically want the same things but there are different "truths" and opinions on how to get there.
-Misunderstandings mostly happen due to lack of communication.
-I found the love of my life (hee hee...sorry guys...I'm getting married in Aug and pretty happy about it!)
- I am more able to put myself in others shoes.
Living abroad has made my life so much richer. I can't imagine living in Canada...no Spain.
That would be sad.
