It’s hard to believe that a little over a year ago I was in the final stages of completing The Emotionally Resilient Expat. This meant writing the last bits and pieces, tidying up the table of contents, drafting the acknowledgements, finalizing the references and resources section, creating an index, and responding to the edits, questions […]
