    I am happy n everything. Life is good. It just feels I'm missing a part of me, namely my mothers side of the family. Should i go back there, because its what I feel I should do?

    I as an indigenous Scot, would never leave my homeland. I could not imagine living in someone elses ancestral homeland, I would feel like a foreigner and outsider wether I was born there or not.

    I have pride in my fellow Scots, my ancestral country, homeland and society and I would never leave it.

    i think that understanding your roots is very important if you're trying to "find yourself" (sorry, can't think of a different way of putting it right now). i think that sometimes we all need to go places to appriciate where we have left behind. i think that the trip would be a good idea. i've got very strong roots and i know that they have helped to shape me as a person...maybe that's what u feel is missing. hope i helped in some way

    Well it depends where your ancestral home is.

    If it's Italy; go for it. Sounds fun.
    If it's Somalia, ermm.. :erm:

    I ve moved from another country at the age of 9 and found that when i go back there my senses and mind are sharper whereas here i feel as though their weak and i feel weaker here too. Not just that life seems to be a blur and days seem shorter whereas there days longer lasting and i can actually feel myself living. i dont want to moan and i feel that england is a good country to live in but i cant help feeling like this. I hope this made sense in some form.

    lol that is probably more to do with england having bad enviroment, weather and temperature, than you coming from another country.

    when everything is bright and sunny you do feel more lively and happy, and that prob makes you sharper too. but over here it is a bit dim and you just feel like sitting in your room and whatever
