My decision to leave was a decision shared and discussed with my family. Some of my friends, instead, took the decision to leave by their own. After my arrival, I tried to get in touch with my family because I wanted to tell them about the situation here and share my plans and talk about future decisions with them. I also tried to share this with the trusted people around me in the new place, especially with those involved in decisions concerning my situation and plans, such as a very nice social worker of the residential care facility where I live. My friends who don’t share their experiences with the family, also found available persons to discuss things in order to take the best possible other decisions. Most likely, all of us will have to take many decisions in the future. Talking to others about the decisions can help to hear different views and to take good decisions.


Make your decisions after having exchanged and discussed them with trusted people at home but also in the new context of arrival.
