Relief

For years I believed to have found my dream job, the fulfilling job that everyone searches and it’s so difficult to find.
And many people never discover. I am talking about the kind of job that you work so hard to pinpoint and that is the perfect career for you.
It turned out that I wasn’t the right fit for that industry. And I gave it up because that is how things go.
In the end, it wasn’t worth the trouble anymore.

What happened after that it’s the most surprising thing of all: the strongest sense of relief that I have ever felt in my entire life.

“…the habit of falling hardens the body, reaching the ground, to in itself, is a relief.”
— José Saramago (Blindness)

“I felt lighter when I had finished, and for once emptiness was a sweet relief and a condition to be treasured.”
— Rachel Hartman

Freedom

When living abroad, I realized at some point that freedom is only there for you if you fight for it and it isn’t a given …
It might look like we live in a time where freedom is a conquered and granted right, well that’s not true.
In reality, people are used to give away their freedom, and the responsibility that comes with it, because they don’t know what to do with them.

“Those who do not move, do not notice their chains.”
― Rosa Luxemburg
