changes - developments.

A question we have to deal with time and again in our lives is the one whether human beings are able to change. To - kind of - become somebody else, differ their character. It is a question millions of humans have already wondered about and will for ever. Books have been written by philosophers and psychologists. I, for myself, have found an answer I can live with.

We do not really change - we stay the same. Yet, each and every little event we go through in our life has an impact on who we are and how we act or appear to others. Some might be minor, others major. Still these impacts have an enormous power. They can transform us, change us in a certain way. They have the power to make a difference on how we behave - and they help us to develop ourselves. Through them our characters are formed, through them our souls break and are healed again. They make us who we are - and they help us develop, not only when we are young, but through all of our lifetimes.

Therefore nobody can actually change - not from one second to the other. But each and every one of us develops, every day, with every single experience. And due to those developments we are able to change.

Lessons of Life

When you are younger you might believe that life will be easier when you are older, when you are finally allowed to do all the things you have always dreamed about. But at a certain point you learn that life is becoming everything you can imagine - but not something which is easy. Life never will be easy. For nobody. But as we are getting older and wiser we learn to cope with its difficulties, learn how to live with our life.

Life also consists of relationships to others, logically. And opinions about other human beings can change rapidly. Where before has been no faith or reason for hope, because you might have given up on someone in a certain way, you can see light again after a minor incident. There can be hope again because you learn things about people you would never have thought. There can be hope after a hug or a few warm word.
But this hope does not necessarily mean, that the involved person shares your point of view. And this is one of the things that make life really difficult and disturbing and heart-breaking and simply make you dreaming about leaving and crying and shouting out loud. One of the hardest lessons we have to learn in life is that every one has his or her own mind and soul - and opinion. Some might be suprisingly warm-hearted while others are cold as ice. But we will not find out until we risk our heart and get to know those people - or at least try to.

London Calling - Once Again.

It feels so good, almost like returning home because you feel this longing and can smell the tube air already, see all the different people with unique stories, taste the chicken curry and the apple mango juice, already know all the great places you love.

and still. it's all so - new. because this time you'll be independent. you'll fly. you'll have to organize and talk more. you are hoping to talk more, get in touch with the locals. you'll be living in a different quarter, new end of the city. you'll be seeing new faces of the old city you love. and it will still be london. once again.
 but no matter what will happen, you know that there are people in this world who will always love you and help you and support you whatever you have done or are planning to do. it's those people who make our life a brighter one, our story a more glamourous one and our time on this planet an outstanding period of time. because ever single second with their love is worth more than thousand chambers filled with all the gold and diamonds of the world. they should know how important they are and how happy they make us without noticing. because with them, we don't need anything more. they make our day and transform us to be the happiest persons in the world. thank you from the depth of my heart.
