Life teaches us lessons continuously. Do we pay attention and acknowledge what we learn? Do we strive to improve ourselves, hence our life, relationships and by this positively influence everyone around us?
Life's an ongoing process. We should decidedly stop for a moment and reflect upon any major situation that happened. Could we do it differently? What did we learn from it? Should we change something in order to have a different outcome next time?
Do you want to change your life, but don't know where to begin? Are you in a relationship but you aren't happy? Do you feel lonely? Can you imagine what your life would be like if you discovered what made you feel fully alive? Are you stuck in a job you don't love? What's stopping you from having the life that you thrive for?
Life's a roller-coaster. Let's make it a genuine fun by finding and offering only the good within us. As odd as it sounds, it takes an effort to be a good person. It demands self-awareness. It requires perseverance. It takes keeping an open-minded over things and an acceptance of everything that it's different even if you don't manage to fully understand. Though at times it requires something as simple as only a honest smile.
Be good! Do good! Smile! Find the better version of yourself!
“I can’t take it anymore. I feel awful. I think I am going crazy. There is no help for me. My life has no meaning.” Painful, right? Especially when a dear friend is telling you this. And, not only once but with an increased regularity. The least I can do is to take time to listen, figure out what is behind her feelings and cheer her up. Yet, no matter how much I am trying to help a friend of mine, I am less and less convinced that I am not making any difference. I have no words to express how sad it makes me. I know her for many years now. As the years have passed, life served her often lots of negative moments and experiences. She has the purest heart a person could have and a that’s more of a reason for me to think that it is not fair that she had to suffer so much, over and over. People often tried to make her feel helpless. But she didn’t totally break down and I really wish to believe that she would not this time or any time in the future. Why was she chosen to be hurt so often?

When I was little, like about 10 years old, I went to the city center with my mum. It was a warm summer day and for a child to crave for an ice cream was something inevitable. And, so I yearned for one. For my mother it would be of course, a difficult thing not to let me have the ice cream no matter what the financial situation was. So, I got my ice cream and enjoyed it like it was the first and the last.
"In hope of a world, that does not celebrate the fake & the cold
In hope of a world where true emotions can be uphold
In hope of a world where truth is told
In hope of the world where sugar coated abuses are not sold
In hope of a world that does not force you to fit in & fold
In hope of a world where tears are allowed to unfold
You are not told to fake happy when your heart can no longer hold
In the hope of a world that doesn’t go numb & cold,
While faking positivity & not being bold
In hope of that world where you & I can be true to our core
We are not judged for being human
And not expected to be a bot, running on a computer code
Let the beauty of true emotions and the warmth of real unfold
Sweet, sour, bitter, happy, sad, high, low, cold
Sincere bonds and true connects
Let us not turn the world into a fake emotion(less) zone"
