Going Does Not Mean Being Away

There are many different kinds of going. Sometimes people leave for new jobs, for love, out of fear and sometimes people have to go forever and leave life. We all know that this is just how it is. And we all have dealt with people going away or we have ourselves gone somewhere.
But what we also do know is, that leaving or being left is never easy. It hurts every time, no matter who left and no matter what the reason is. 
I am not trying to compare all those reasons for leaving and the feelings you’re left with. What I am trying to say is, that wherever you go, you will only be physically away. You always leave some part of you behind. Things, memories, stories. When someone goes away, we keep carrying everything that connects us to the person in ourselves. You can chose whether it is your mind or your heart, or maybe both. That is up to you and what you believe is true for yourself. In any way, the people and the memories about them always stay with you.
I just wanted to remind myself and maybe some of you that sometimes we think we lost everything but if we come to the point where we have hurt enough and thought about it enough, there are still possibilities to be connected. No matter how and no matter for what reason someone left.

Except if you count work and your work place as something you love… Okay I am not talking about if or how much I love my work places either. Might get me in trouble (I’m kidding).
Some years ago I started working a few hours a week at a big company because I was looking for a job I could do while studying full time. Back then I was still working on my bachelor degree but well… working doesn’t hurt your resumé and definitely not your wallet.
Anyways, so I ended up to be a working student there with limited hours.

17

When I was 17 I used to wonder what life would be like 10 years later. I used to have it all figured out and well planned.
Little did I know that life has its own way of falling together and creating pieces you can’t even imagine sometimes.
If I could visit my 17 year old self in the past, I probably wouldn’t tell her what is going to happen. Because whatever happens, makes you grow; it makes you smarter and maybe even harder at some point.
