Because sometimes we fail to realize how important certain people are in our lives, how they encourage us to grow and help us be our best version.
In order to not feel lost is essential to be close with these people once in a while if not all the time.
I see how challenging is to be surrounded by uninteresting and uninterested, colorless people who don’t light up your life because in those situations it’s only up to you to keep thriving in your life and it’s only your responsibility to find the strength to support your views but sometimes, not being surrounded by the right people can trap you inside a gloomy cage of apathy, lack of interest and indifference that might lead you to resign and surrender of your dreams.
I leave you here with a Rumi’s poem which said exactly what I want to express today but better, because nobody is strong enough to keep their soul enlightened in a room full of dark, sombre and dim shadows.
Be with those who help your being
Don’t sit with indifferent people, whose breath
comes cold out of their mouths.
Not these visible forms, your work is deeper.
A chunk of dirt thrown in the air breaks to pieces.
If you don’t try to fly,
and so break yourself apart,
you will be broken open by death,
when it’s too late for all you could become.
Leaves get yellow. The tree puts out fresh roots
and makes them green.
Why are you so content with a love that turns you yellow?
