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.
