Why don’t you emigrate?
Because no one needs you here. Actually, no one needs you anywhere, including your motherland. The only who needs you is yourself. So that’s why developing and creating yourself is the only thing worth doing, wherever you are.

Only by having merged with it can you really open your heart to the beauty of the world.

The picturesque, mountainous state of Kosovo is one such example.
