Once again I am leaving for exotic destinations and once again I did not have time to say goodbye to everyone. For some of you, the meeting is only postponed but for others, the reunion sounds more of a challenge.
1. YOU ARE IRREPLACEABLE
Even though I meet new people and create new ties, you can’t replace a particular bond by another. If you know me well, you must be aware of how picky I can when it comes to finding people I can relate to. Once I have found you, I won’t let you down. You all have your own expressions, your own interests and lots of qualities that make you a unique being. Besides, I have certainly shared experiences with you that I have never had with anyone else. It’s amazing to have the chance to meet so many people but nothing beats friends who stay with us for the entire ride.
2. I WILL ALWAYS BE HERE FOR YOU
Sometimes friendships begin again because of life-changing events may they be happy (marriage, graduation …) or less joyful (break up, death).
You know, I hate when you tell me that your life is dull and still the same. I am certain that you are going through a variety of things which you do not value. It’s always great to know where you stand, to chat about the little things paving your everyday life. I love to hear about your personal projects, your pets, your relationships and being updated.
Surely, I am not the one that you can call to go get a drink on a whim after leaving your job or in which you can take refuge in case of hard times but acknowledge that I will remain by your side no matter which country I am living in. The good news is that thanks to modern technologies, it is easy to talk, write and share feelings instantly. Without being able to make a hug, I will be an attentive ear.
In times of paranoia, I sometimes wonder that if I keep on moving, I still belong to the people you appreciate. I feel like I am missing so many important bits of your lives that one day you will not miss me anymore.
3. I FEAR TO LOSE YOU
The more I travel, the more I encounter new souls with whom the spiritual connection is sometimes brief but can be intense. I tell myself that I am only passing through and that many of you do not want to bother to get attached if it is not to never see me. Because anyway, I will soon have to pack and make tracks. For those I have not seen for a long time, I hope that you still have a small place for me in your hearts and on your sofas for the day I would come to cook for you and chill.
4. THANK YOU
For those who are still here after my years of wandering, those who continue to take news, the ones who have become a real family; I take this opportunity to express my immense gratitude. I may be a strong and independent woman (ah-ah), I am nothing without you. It is only because I know that I am not alone that I can cruise by myself. Your friendship is a considerable support in both good and bad times. It is always a pleasure to meet you and to see that nothing has changed between us.
After this long emotional post, I am going back to try to find a VISA and a cheap flight to my next destination.
Take care, I love you. ♥
