As a wandering traveler, I have become a little too good at making changes. I mean drastic changes, and not only that, they happen quickly. From one day to another, sometimes one hour to another I can decide on quitting a job, quitting a course, ending one relationship or another, sometimes friendships, that I realized way back in the past just took more than they gave. Usually the quick, sometimes irrational decisions, grow out from long hours of contemplation, sometimes it’s just the thrill of something new that imposes them.
This is not meant to be about me, but it might end up being about my life and my perspective. What other story can I tell anyway, but my own? No matter how impartial I’ll ever attempt to be, I’ll always be biased by my own personal lenses. I can only understand the world around me through my own personality. No one can ever tell a story without partly reflecting their own experiences, they are embedded in who we are and how we interpret the world around us. Thus we can never tell another story than our own. It works like projection – the only way we can understand other people is through who we are ourselves.
Heads up – this is perhaps brutally honest, and qutie personal. But it is my story, the only story I know. In the end, we might as well reveal it all. One way or another, it’ll show anyway. In the end we are all only human. Let it be.
Instead of starting to write about each of my stops from the timeline I posted the other day, I am going to jump ahead and write about my experience of living in Edinburgh – in a hostel.
The time finally came, when the need for comfort came to outweigh the desire for adventure.
Some people end up in one destructive relationship after another, joking about that they find their partners outside the mental institution.
The idiomatic expression, ”everything has its time”, is quite accurate, significant and important to bear in mind.
While some life-changing things started happening back home in the past year, I had a life-changing eye-opener.
Jobs, the founder of Apple, was a college drop out, who got fired from the company which he founded and abandoned his first child for several years. He eventually “grew up”, got married, took responsibility for his first child as well as his other three. He also became the chief executive officer of Apple after his comeback.
