What has happend with humanity? What has happend with love? What has happend with justice or equality?
It was a day like this – most of us were doing what they usually do during day or night. But one of us didn’t – his name was GEORGE FLOYD. He was lying on the ground, beneath the knee of a white supremacist. A white supremacist who calls himself a police man – a man you usually trust. Floyd was crying for help – „I CAN’T BREATHE. PLEASE“. Derek Chauvin, you didn’t listen – you didn’t want to listen. You wanted to him suffer, you wanted to show him your superior position. YOU WANTED TO SEE HIS DEATH IN FRONT OF YOUR EYES. YOU KNELT ON HIS NECK FOR ABOUT 8 MINUTES – 8 MINUTES OF BLOCKING THE AIRWAY AND ALSO BLOCKING THE BLOOD FLOW TO FLOYD’S BRAIN!
Derek Chauvin – why? Why did you become so heartless? What was the reason behind your hate?Why did you kill Flody despite his cry for help? Why didn’t you look after him???
But Chauvin was not alone. Tou Thao, one of the four police men at the scene. Thao was a bystander – looking how his Chauvin was blocking Floyd’s airways! BUT HE DID NOTHING! He was just standing there, witnessing how Floyd was grasping for air, how blood was coming out of his nose. BUT HE DID NOTHING – he didn’t even flinch.
Tou Thao – what was your reason for not helping? What was your reason for looking and supporting your criminal friend? Where does your satisfaction of loving to look someone being killed come from?
George Floyd died – but his name will always be remembered, his face will always be remembered.
There were many people like George Floyd, many who were killed brutally by a racial act. All of them will be remembered and honoured. Our voices will raise more because your voices can’t anymore. Our call for justice will multiple! Our call for equality will multiple! We will stand with our brothers and sisters – next to each other, for a better place, for a better world.
We want justice and equality EVERYWHERE.
If you see someone verbally or physically abusing someone because of their race – do something. If you see someone verbally or physically abusing someone because of their religion and beliefs – do something. ‚CAUSE IF YOU DON’T, THAN YOU ARE SUPPORTING IT.
No human race is superior; no religious faith is inferior. All collective judgments are wrong. Only racists make them
Since I met you, I am asking myself if this is what a soulmate feels like. I remember every detail of us – my mind is constantly replaying those memories. But why are we still that far? Don’t soulmates belong together? Shouldn’t we love each other like no one else does?
Do you remember how our story started? It was at the train where our eyes locked suddenly. Although I didn’t know you, I felt something. Just by the way your eyes spoke to me. It felt like I know you for many years. But did you feel that as well?
We arrived – I got off the train knowing that I might never see those eyes again. Reaching the door of the building I had to enter, a feeling overcame me – something was pursuing me to look behind me. And there you were – again. You wanted to enter the same building. I saw the cast around your leg, you had your walking support. I realized that the feeling overcaming me was your way of communication. I felt the need you had because you couldn’t open the door on your own. Maybe fate wanted us to talk together, to be there for each other, to get to know each other – but we didn’t. I held you the door open, you entered and thanked me with a wide smile. I smiled back – at that was it.
Our ways parted. I didn’t know your name. I only knew that genuine smile of you, the way our eyes locked and the way you limped into the building. The next day, everything faded. As if nothing happend on that train, as if there wasn’t me and you on that train. You were just a vague memory I couldn’t recall.
Fast forward to a year after that incident. Due to the circumstances our classes had changed. The morning began with a lecture. The lecture hall was full of students. After that I had a chat with my friends in front of the hall – and there you were, out of nowhere. You left the lecture hall with your friend. I couldn’t believe my eyes. We were at the same place for a year but we had never met after that incident. Hello stranger, nice to meet you again. I looked at you, I was happy. You entered my life again, I couldn’t take my eyes of you. However, you didn’t see me. You never did.
Since that day, I saw you often – at the library, at the lecture hall. You switched your place to the one directly in front of me. I knew you were looking. I knew that you did that for a reason. I felt safe – maybe because it looked like you felt safe, too. Our meetings were magical, although I didn’t know your name – but fate brought us together somehow. Maybe you were my soulmate, maybe we were meant to be together. I couldn’t forget you. I had this special connection with you. That’s why I talked to a friend about you and, as magical as everything was until that moment, it became more magical. My friend knew about you. He was one of your old friends at school. Suddenly your face had a name – a very beautiful name. But it came with a bitterness – maybe this was also meant to be. You were in a very healthy and beautiful relationship. I was sad about that piece of information but happy for you at the same time. I was happy you were loved by someone very deeply. I was determined to forget you – for our sake.
And it worked – mostly because we had no lectures or classes together. I thought that I forget you. Little did I know that fate would bring us together again.
Exam Time! Seat numbers are generated for every participant with a computer. We were about 300 participants, so there was a little chance to sit next to your friends. I got my paper with my seat number and entered the exam hall. I saw my seat from far away and was a bit disappointed that I didn’t see my friends next to my seat. As I reached for my chair, I realized the person next to me staring at me. I looked up and saw YOU, to my left side. We were colour coordinated, sitting next to each other. I couldn’t believe my eyes – why? Out of everyone in that room why you? I remember the mixed feelings I had at that time. I truly started to believe in fate and in us. But as much as I wanted to speak to you, I couldn’t. I respected your beautiful relationship, you being happy and feeling loved.
And that’s why I am still that stranger without a name for you. And it’s okay. I am happy!
Maybe fate wants us to be soulmate strangers. Not all soulmates will find together and enjoy a relationship as friends or lovers. That’s why I like to call you my soulmate stranger. We will be distanced but happy!
So dear soulmate stranger, enjoy your life. And thank you for the fateful moments. I believe that GOD wanted us to meet – to enjoy this energy from each other without talking and getting to know each other. Everything happens for a reason – and so does that part of my life. Thank you GOD, thank you soulmate stranger.
It was a rainy Monday morning. I packed up my stuff and left the house.
I felt the coldness of every single raindrop on my bare face, a face without make-up. Since my last break-up I truly understand what it means to not just go for the look but also for the personality. I was tired of all that drama and the hard work to look good for someone who just loved my face but not my soul.
Since my break-up I visited the university library. Sitting in a corner in the basement of the library and trying to avoid every kind of thought of him. It has been already a year but the days where I felt worthless because of him just kept appearing in front of my eyes. „NEVER AGAIN! I WILL NEVER FALL IN LOVE AGAIN!“ I put on my headphones, turned on my music and closed my eyes.
I didn’t know how much time has gone since that moment but suddenly I felt a slight touch on my shoulder. I opened my eyes and there was this guy with messy hair and a cute glass. He asked me if he could have a seat next to me because every other seat is taken. I nodded. And from there our story began.
„The hardest thing about ‚everything happens for a reason‘ is waiting for that reason to show up.”
It was my third and last day in Paris. Since I went there alone without my family in order to experience more love for art and aesthetics, I decided to start my last day off in a little, cute coffee shop next to my hotel.
Whilst drinking my latte macchiato, I looked outside of the window thinking about why Paris is called the city of love. Maybe I couldn’t understand because I has never really fallen in love with anybody. Although I am 21, I was never in love.
I took my little notebook and started writing about all the things I wanted to do in the next couple of years. More time and memories with my family, a good degree from university, a happy and fulfilled life. I was thinking really about other things while looking out of the window. And there was it – something that I never experienced before. I directly stared in the eyes of an stranger outside of the coffee shop. Our gazes where looked and it felt like time has stopped and only we could move. There was a strange but warm feeling in my chest while locking eyes with him. We just stared at each other without checking out how the other one looks like. It was like we were reading each others soul – as if we were made for each other.
And this is when I understand why Paris is called city of love because I met YOU. See you next time, again in Paris, at OUR little coffee shop next to that hotel.
first of all, MERRY CHRISTMAS. I really hope you have a wonderful christmas next to your loved ones.
I will keep this really short. I just wanted to inform you that there will be a turn over in this page. I will keep the positive stuff and the positive mindset however, I will also start writing little stories I think of. It is really important to let your fantasy make big things happen.
We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.” ― Anais Nin
And here we go again. There is this feeling again. The feeling of being incomplete without the other one. The feeling of missing an important part in your life when you’re without your significant other.
But do you think about what it would be if you don’t love yourself? How would your life look like without yourself being happy about YOU?
Before loving someone else you should be able to love yourself. You should love your perfect imperfections, your mistakes and the way of life which led to being you. ‚Cause through self love you give yourself worth. And this worth will be maintained in your relationship with your significant other.
So, never forget who you are, where you came from and where you wanna be. Love and cherish yourself in order to be loved and seen by others.
“Dare to love yourself
as if you were a rainbow
with gold at both ends.”
– Aberjhani, Journey through the Power of the Rainbow: Quotations from a Life Made Out of Poetry
Why should we cherish life? What makes life so precious?
Why should we live?
Life is there to create oneself. If you really want to know who you are and how far you can come, you should cherish your life. You should wake up every morning and be happy about the fact that you are alive, your family is alive and you have a roof above your head.
Be strong, believe in yourself and do what makes you happy! 🙂
Be someone you will be proud of in 10 years.
Everything you do is your own choice. You choose your own happiness, your love and the way your life should go on. Therefore, choose wisely and never let someone discourage you that you can’t go further than where you are now.
How can I be happy? How can I be cheerful? What it the thing that can help me to reach my dreams?
For sure, everyone has asked himself or herself this questions.
People try to look in their sourroundings in order to find the answer. People try to look up on the internet in order to find the answer.
But there is one thing they will not do!
They don’t try to look within theirselves. They don’t try to think about themselves. They don’t maybe even think about it that they can make themselves happy.
Be with someone that makes you happy!
If you love yourself, than you will be happy.
If you understand that you can change the world with your love, than you will be happy.
If you understand that you are born for a reason, than you will be happy.
Change the world for the good. Try to give something good back to this world. Try to help other people – after you have reached your dreams and goals. Try to help them to love themselves and believe in themselves.
And trust me, you will be happy by doing this.
But the most important fact is what I have said before – LOVE YOURSELF FIRST.
Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
Once you are not afraid of this big dream, you can easily achieve it
Dreaming can be scary. One can not be sure whether reaching this dream will become reality or not. But not only the fear hinders people from reaching their dream, also the way to their dream.
Will this be a hard way? A way full of problems, tears and hurtful experiences? This questions lead to a simple solution – and many people take this path: Giving up!
Giving up is a simple solution, however should we go for the simple or for the better solution?
Giving up means that one is defeated – defeated by one’s own dreams. Giving up means that one has defeated oneself.
It is like hurting yourself, hurting your imagination, hurting your ability.
Is it alright to hurt oneself like this? – NO! IT WILL NEVER BE ALRIGHT!
Maybe one just have to remember one’s own childhood. There was nothing bigger than our dreams, nothing bigger than our imagination. There was never the idea of taking the simple solution and giving up the dream.
So why should we now let got of our dreams and our passion?
If your dream is what you really want, what you really love, just FiGHT for it. FIGHT for it until you reach it. FIGHT for it until you can say: „Yes, I did it.“ FIGHT for it until the impossible becomes possible.
And after one reaches this dream than there will be always the acknowledgment that no dream is too big. One must just have the courage to take the difficult path with its up and downs.
Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world
