It’s funny how life happens sometimes, one day someone or something’s introduced into your life and just like that, they become part of it, and just like that, they can also vanish. It’s like the waves in the ocean, taking ou the old and bringing in the new. Maybe it’s all a cycle, or life telling you they’ve got to go, it could even be life testing you to see how long you can hold on.
I don’t think I’ll ever know how this all works, but I’m fine with it.
And some things just stay there unchanged.
Find meaning. Distinguish melancholy from sadness. Go out for a walk. It doesn’t have to be a romantic walk in the park, spring at its most spectacular moment, flowers and smells and outstanding poetical imagery smoothly transferring you into another world. It doesn’t have to be a walk during which you’ll have multiple life epiphanies and discover meanings no other brain ever managed to encounter. Do not be afraid of spending quality time by yourself. Find meaning or don’t find meaning but “steal” some time and give it freely and exclusively to your own self. Opt for privacy and solitude. That doesn’t make you antisocial or cause you to reject the rest of the world. But you need to breathe. And you need to be.
