Expats direction become less focusing on Saudi looking to what's happening in work market in Saudi.

fattia7400 :

not happy at all .. specially recent year with bad circumstances in the job market in Saudi .
my husband has been a year now with no income and we are planing to leave Saudi Arabia ..

Agree, its going to worst in all perspectives special jobs market for expats, also we start feeling the reduction happening in live quality around us, for example mobile market today become v. bad

Nope. I'm not happy at all. I've only spent 5 days here and I'm very disappointed by the arrogance and rudeness of most Saudis at my school.

I wish I could go home,  but I need the money.

This is the life here, after some time you will feel better and these things will be like normal...

That makes it even worse.
I thought it was a universal rule to treat others with respect...but really some people missed the bus there.

I'm completely depressed


I get that people have bad personality traits in our society. But I never expected a whole community to have such...oh my.

I am still sure that after sometime  you will beleive that a lot of locals looks only aggressive but tge fact its nature not behavior

I consider myself to be an optimistic person, I believe in looking on the bright side of life But do I'm happy with my life in Saudi Arabia ? As a girl absolutely NO.

you're in tabuk, i'm in taif, these smaller cities are a bit of a drag for women, i'd agree. however, still happy walhamdulillaah

i find riyadh and jeddah way easier especially after emergence of careem and uber everything is accessible

Happiness is an attitude. You can never be happy anywhere if you can't find it within yourself.
Specifically talking about Saudi Arabia, yes if one is treated with equality of rights and justice.

:top:

No...

So much happiness attitude one can have, the environment impacts on ones happiness also not just attitude

Happiness is a state of mind, it's definitely what you make about Saudi that will effect your mood. You can go to the best place on earth and you will find that you not happy.
I must however admit that Saudi isn't an easy country to live in but then again go out on weekends go and make a barbecue read a book whilst alone in the desert.
We have started doing silly things for argument a barbeque in the middle of nowhere and yea it make a difference.

So many philosophers here. Keep it up

Don't worried, we are use to it. Try to adjust your self and divert your attention into your hobbies, sports, outing, friends gathering, mall, shopping, watch movies, cooking, etc., Inshallah you will find some positive track to stay longer.
