It has been a while I wanted to write this post but didn’t really know how to explain this…feeling, yes, let’s call it feeling. Well, I decided the moment arrived and I’ll do my best to try to explain it because it’s a topic I live everyday which I’m so thankful about. Plus, it might be that someone out there is in this situation too but doesn’t realise it and maybe this post can be eye-opening. And if not, well I’ve shared with you another part of my life which I’m really grateful for.
After this preface, here we go with the topic: all the people who are part of my life.
Now, wait a second, I know this seems such a vast and general matter, but let me explain you.
I believe that the first people who you really realise are important in your life are your family members. Your family will always be there for you, no matter what, where and when. I kind of always knew this but I have to admit that I totally got this since when I’m living far from home. Having a supportive and encouraging family brings you to grow in an environment where your character and minding-set is generally positive and this already means a lot. Especially when you meet people who didn’t have this kind of situation, you really realise how lucky you are and how tough it should have been for them to go against the mentality with which they were raised. [Of course, this is a general thought and I do believe there are many different cases and exceptions 😉 ]
Another great part of ones life are all the people who we had a sort of relation with, maybe for working reasons, while travelling, at an event…anything! I already wrote a little about this in this post, where I explained how I “divide” all this bunch of people you meet through your life (okay this sounds like a massive sentence, what I mean is: people who you meet daily). The first type, in particular, those who, when you met, sparked a triggered, as if you were old friends, together with your actual good old friends are what makes the difference. I consider some of my really close friends as “mentors”, not all for the same topic, but listening to their point of view or to the experiences they had, helps me so much. Of course it can always happen that a good advice comes from a random-whoyouneverknewabout person but you can’t really count on them regularly. I strongly believe that it’s also thanks to this people that I managed to achieve many goals of mine and that I still believe and work for the ones I want to accomplish in the future. In the end, being understood and supported, is the best feeling ever. So, if I had to say which is the most precious thing I have in my life, the answer would be: all the people who are part of my daily life.
On the other hand, I’m also aware of the fact that, counting too much on people could be a double edged weapon: what if someone disappoints you? It happens, it happened and it’s not sure it won’t happen again. It’s part of the circle I guess… but still, if that person left something in you, both while you were in a good relation or when he/she sadden you, well then that was meant to be. I’m a strong believer of the statement “everything happens for a reason” so, maybe you can’t realise it the moment the bad event happens, but there is always something you can draw from a relation. [I would have so much more to add about this specific topic but well…maybe in another post! 😉 ] Anyway, hopefully this kind of situation do not happen that often and hopefully the positive experience with other people are more than the negative ones 🙂
Okay, probably many of you faithful followers will be surprised by this post, it’s not really my usual kind of post, I feel weird too but I really felt like writing about this. Now. While I’m living my biggest teenage dream and I actually realise that this won’t be as important as it is if I wouldn’t have had people who to share this journey with.
Do not hesitate to leave a comment with YOUR thought about the topic, I would be so glad to read it or to hear about which is the role of the most important people in your life! 🙂
I included this post in the “expat thoughts” category because I actually realised all this since when I moved abroad but I totally think this is one of those feelings than ANYONE can have!! 😉
