'Something breaks them': how our people change after moving to the USA
I have many friends who have moved from Russia to America, writes the author of the channel "Young Columbus" on "Yandex Zen". Recently, it has been getting less and less possible to call up with them, and I no longer hope to see them ...
But even on the phone it is clear that something is wrong with them, that something has changed in them. I thought a lot and talked with those who stayed in Russia. And we have found several things that “break” Russians in America.
At first glance, it is not clear what I am talking about when I voice that the Americans are a closed people. It seems like the opposite is true. We are from the North, we are drinking vodka with the bears, and they sunbathe on the beaches of sunny California and enjoy life.
But it is not so. Yes, Russians are cautious and inhospitable with strangers, and Americans, on the contrary, strive to communicate with everyone. But when it comes to close friendships, everything gets upside down.
We treat friends as a family, we tell and worry about each other. And the Americans are cold and closed to relatives.
Even if a person has problems and you ask “How are you?”, You will not hear anything except “Okay”. We have exactly the opposite.

Life on credit and instant enjoyment. Yes, it's all about America. From time immemorial, we have been more restrained and reasonable.
The simplicity of life attracts loans, but there is no turning back ...
In this paragraph, you can immediately talk about two things. First, Americans are obsessed with health and sports. Everyone who does not even play sports considers it his duty to take a photo in the gym or on a treadmill. Such a small fake ...
And on the other hand, due to the glut of information and the constant changes in society, the psychological health of Americans suffers more than the Russians.
You can often meet crazy and homeless people in the big cities of America. And all of them are from normal families, some even had a job. But the “attic” didn't go there ...
Here are several reasons why Russians in America are “breaking down”. What reasons do you know?
