Sometimes you just wanna run away. Far far away. Leave everthing behind, sorting life, breaking up and also break out. Away from daily business, out of the rat race, away from the eternal dilemma.
The world lies in front of us. The bis adventure, the great unkown.
This was the way I felt when I was a teenager. I just wanted to be left alone. I did not want to hear the endless lectures of my parents anymore. I was dreaming of leaving my hometown and just begin a new life anywhere else. I simply wanted to be a grown-up.
Now, 15 years later I stand on my own feet of course. Placed in life. I bear responsibility for myself, my actions and my loved ones, my little own family. Every day. And I am grown-up. Well, this is what I always wanted? To be a grown-up? Now I could hardly undertand my younger self.
It is probably like everything in life: as soon as you get it it is not really interesting and at least annoying depending on some circumstances.
I am not living in my hometown for a long time now. I have really made it and left my town when I was 20. The world called and I just followed her.
Now I have arrived and realized how important the family is. I am aware that far away is not always as good as before. These days I am really happy if I can see my family and friends 4 times a year. If time and work permits.
Today I really appreciate meeting friends and my family. The precious time of being togehter. Moments of happiness and moments of perfection. Sometimes I wish that there were not so many kms tearing us apart. But if there is something I have also learned: only distance can create proximity! If you really care!
And I know: there is always somebofy. It doesn’t matter how far away. I can always count on them. Thank you!
