The Familiar


I thought I would dislike this place because I can't stand its silence, dullness, coldness and emptiness. But as I move further away from it, its silence becomes tranquility, its dullness turns into harmony, its coldness depicts stability, and its emptiness inspires the feeling of freedom.

I thought I would feel relieved facing a change, but sacrifices become more visible and more weighty as I am preparing to set out for change. Will the gains compensate for all that I am leaving behind?

  2. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. I look back on my experiences and appreciate a lot of the things I didn't notice during that time.

  6. Leaving things, places and people behind is inevitable. Change is always both exciting and daunting but things in life will always be like that and contradict each other. I hope you are well.

  15. Mir fällt erst jetzt richtig auf, dass du ja in Deutschland wohnst! Are you a native speaker in German? Or just a university student from another country? I'm quite curious right now ~

  16. Love the photo.
    And those are quite thought provoking questions you asked...
    in time you'll know
    whether the things you gave up are worth for the change you are hoping.
