I never wrote a post in an online forum before, I always preferred to sort things out myself. But now it is different.
I am 36 yo gay male, originally from Eastern Europe. I am living 10 years in the UK now. All is legal with me from the very start in 2011.I was working and in the meantime I completed my studies here, got my MSc course here (Biology Sciences) in 2015. I did this because I wanted to integrate in the UK, I love this country. I think I was naive!
Now, six years later I am still in the UK and in the middle of nowhere in my life. I am working a restaurant job. It pays the bills they say, this is enough. There is something wrong, I cant figure out why. I am not successful in life. Is it because I am a foreigner? Is it because of my accent? I am putting a lot of effort to get a job in my field and contribute to the British society but in vain. All seems to be alright on the surface, people superficially are nice to me but in fact I feel I face a wall I can't break through.
Maybe I am too pessimist, but the Brexit vote in 2016 does not make things better. Feels like the UK doesn't want me to be part of it.
If someone is on the same boat, please answer. I feel that I have wasted 10 years of my life for nothing.
