Last station

It’s comforting to be in a place where someone has thought ahead and made decisions for you, but sometimes you find yourself in a situation where no one has gone before. In these moments, you realize that you are alone and there is no one to turn to for help. It’s like being at the bottom of a mountain and still wanting to climb higher.

However, these moments of uncertainty can also be opportunities for growth and self-discovery. By stepping outside of what is familiar and comfortable, you challenge yourself to think critically and creatively. You learn to rely on your own instincts and experiences, and you come to understand your own strengths and weaknesses.

So, the next time you find yourself in a situation where no one has gone before, embrace it. Embrace the challenge and the uncertainty, and use it as a chance to grow and develop as a person. You never know where it might take you, but taking the first step is always the hardest part.

Finding Happiness Closer to Home

Recently, I found myself in a difficult situation. After enrolling in a university far from my hometown, I realized that it wasn’t the right fit for me. I felt unfulfilled and unhappy with my situation, and I wasn’t sure what to do next.

Then, one of my friends who was studying at a better branch of the same university in my hometown suggested that we can switch our branches. He had decided that he didn’t want to continue at his current university, and I finally had the chance to continue my education closer to home.

The process of transferring was not easy. There was a lot of paperwork involved, and I had to travel back and forth between the two universities multiple times. Despite these challenges, I persevered and am so glad I did.

Now, I am happily studying at my new university, which is only a short 10-minute drive from my home. I am so grateful for this opportunity to be in a place where I feel comfortable and happy.

Walking Through the Blues

Sometimes, a person’s heart becomes heavy. Neither a good book can change their mood, nor a scientific conversation, nor sleeping, nor drinking tea or coffee, nor even walking with an old friend. Nothing works. The pain persists. So they start walking, from one city to another. The weather is still the same, they light a cigarette, thinking maybe this will help, but it doesn’t. They are still sad. Nothing can change their state of mind. They are tired, their heart remains heavy and it will stay that way. Nothing can change their mood anymore.

As humans, we all have moments where we feel down and nothing seems to lift our spirits. It can be difficult to pinpoint what’s causing the heavy heart, but sometimes it just seems to come out of nowhere. The feeling of being stuck and helpless can be overwhelming, and it’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking that there’s nothing that can change our current state.

But what if I told you that there’s always a way out of this feeling? That there’s always something that can change our mood and give us a new perspective on life. It may not come in the form of a book, a conversation, or a friend, but it can come in many other shapes and sizes. For example, try practicing gratitude by listing three things you’re thankful for each day. Or, engage in a physical activity like exercise, which has been proven to boost endorphins and improve mood.

Another way to change our state of mind is by traveling, meeting new people, trying new experiences, and stepping out of our comfort zone. Sometimes, a change of scenery is all we need to shake off the heavy heart. But if that’s not possible, try to find new and creative ways to bring joy into your life. Whether it’s through art, music, cooking, or any other hobby that brings you happiness, find what works for you and stick with it.

Remember, it’s important to give yourself time and space to process your feelings, but it’s equally important to not get stuck in them. There’s always a way out, and there’s always something that can change our mood and give us a fresh start. So take a deep breath, be kind to yourself, and try to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
