the biggest lesson i’ve learned

Category: The Best You, Personal


life has been a whirlwind of events and i feel like i’ve had no time to process life. currently i’m back home and it feels so nice to see familiar faces, to do my old routine,to be with friends and family… and amidst all of this, i’m feeling a little remorseful that i left such a perfect place.

for the first time since moving, i’m toying with the idea of moving back home and what’s different this time is that it’s not accompanied with FOMO.

seeing all of ann’s wedding stuff and realizing i wasn’t there to help her through this, or seeing her new place and knowing we won’t be able to hang out there, and hearing about birthday plans and not being invited because i live so far away just really breaks my heart.

and it brings me back to the biggest lesson i’ve learned since moving away and that is it’s the company that makes the experience, not the activity.

it has been a whirlwind of a few weeks since my last post and my complete apologies.

we flew to seattle for two weddings the weekend of 4th of July and had another wedding last weekend. something i’ve noticed about myself is that my social skills are not up to par. i’m having difficulty making conversation with people, telling stories, and really just being comfortable in social settings.

i know the root of the cause though and it’s because i hardly ever hang out with people anymore. it’s funny to think that i used to try and run away to gain some peace and quiet and valued these moments of solace. now on the opposite end of the spectrum, here i am yearning for some quality time with my family and friends, sigh… i miss you guys
