Here’s a short note to you. When I left home 4 years ago, I also left a big part of my heart there. When I first moved here, I was still a “child” (not literally), far from independent. The thought of moving to a new strange place was intimidating but after awhile everything here became second nature to me. So much so that I often find myself reminiscing upon my daily routine here when I was away for off days, the weather/the people, and of course going on my daily/weekly shopping adventures (too many to list down!).
A year ago, everything was so different .
And now that I look back I realise that a year can do a lot to a person.
Most important lessons I learned in the past year/years are, do not let anyone turn you cruel. No matter how badly you wanna give the world a taste of its own bitter medicine. It’s never worth losing yourself over.I am not perfect, most of the time. I am sometimes selfish, occasionally self destructive and prone to very brief, yet severe, spells of sadness. But I would fight until every bone in my body was broken to protect you (my job) . That’s a promise.
And once after every storm is over, I do not remember how I made it through, how I managed to survive. I won’t even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When I come out of the storm, I won’t be the same person who walked in. That is what this storm’s all about.
I once feared solitude, but I’ve learned that it gave me the freedom to do anything I wanted. In short, here’s a big thank you for making me grow up!
