A year ago I was a different person.
A year ago I was happy, content and successfull.
You might think that today I have lost all of that, but on the contrary. A year ago I had a false understanding of what happiness is, a year ago I was sad but I faked being happy. You know sometimes you lie, and with the progress of that lie you yourself start believing it.
A year ago, I met someone.
At first, I believed that that someone was a normal human being just someone random who I came across, but time passed by and I understood things clearly.
Some people have a certain effect, they are so full of light that they open your eyes, show you a world that you didn’t know it existed. They clear the darkness and take away all of the fake lies. This person was and still is so different. She taught me things, she showed me what matters in life, I watched her as she defended her beliefs as she stood tall against the opressive and as she went for what she believed in.
A year ago, I was blind, I didn’t notice the opressed and I believed as long as I am far away from the incident then I am in the clear and that I am happy.
Life is more than this, life is more than me and you. Life is about the humans, the people and the environment. I look at her and how she shows love to every single cat or dog on the street, and I wonder how can a person be so pure on the inside. That unconditional love for people and animals that are unaware of her existance, how does she do it and how can she go on.
As time progressed by her side, I can see now that it doesn’t matter who you are or what you want to be, what matters is that you stand up for what you believe in. No one likes to admit that they weren’t a good person, I was a good guy but now I am better, now I am with someone who knows how to love.
