This topic and its title were drafted a year ago after my conversation with a colleague. We were in the same department, somehow sharing the same sentiments in work and in life. Having our own different reasons, she left work first and I followed. A year had passed and we reunite, today is December 2017 completing this post.
At work I encountered different moods from everyone: they wake up feeling happy and good, they feel home-sickness and missing their family, they are angry at someone or at something, they were the same as yesterday, they are loud and can speak a lot, and they are in complete silence. Working abroad is both easy and difficult, thus, these moods should be respected the whole time.
So when she was quiet for some days, I thought that was just normal as she had concealed her feelings very well. Then, one day she told me that she was leaving and will go back home. I was surprised with her news as I did not get any hint about what was happening with her. She explained some reasons and I understood. I then realized that she had something within herself: battling over decisions, and keeping herself being okay and to look fine.
We have different voices within us screaming in distinct level referring to our life’s role; a son, a daughter, or a sibling for our family responsibilities, an employee for our job duties and future savings, a lover and a friend for relationships, and a person for our own self. Time and situations change the level of these voices, will you listen to the loudest scream or will you try to hush it, or will you ignore it and focus on the other voices? Decisions should be made weighing the things that really matters. Please listen to your HEART and PRAY harder.
If you listen to your heart everything will follow, you will be at ease and you will have a peaceful mind.
Did I and my colleague made the right decision? Of course we had, we are now having a happy heart and a peaceful mind. We regained the part of ourselves that we had lost for years, and we were thankful for the experiences that made us today – a tougher and stronger soul.
There are still lots of experience that can happen in the future and it makes us excited to welcome and to experience them as it makes us GROW.
