Tonight’s wisdom words: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, And wisdom to know the difference”
It’s been a month since I have been back and getting used to the busy London life again has been challenging, specially the first weeks. So after a month of evaluation, there are still couple of things I can’t really understand about London and myself:
- How and when and why did I decide to move into such a cold city? It was snowing today and yes it’s almost May.
- How long can a human being live in London without looking at people in the eyes when on the tube? Funny enough, the other day a guy smiled at me on the Bakerloo line. I am not joking when I am saying this is probably the first time in almost 4 years. And are we sure he is not gone to hell for being that shameless?
- This is more a philosophic question: what’s really important in life? Having a nice job, paying your rent on time, saving some money to then go travel or something a bit deeper like, having someone to share your time with? And for how long Londoners can pretend their life is filled with beautiful things when in reality they are lonely?
- And also, for how long do you want to use this damn online dating thing? Why don’t people talk to each other at the supermarket? In the tube? At the bus stop? Tell me why do I have to pretend to be interested in what a stranger tells me through a screen. I already have to deal with all my far away friends through a screen!
After hours (!) spent thinking about all these questions I realised one thing: what London misses, except the sun, is a humanitarian side, the one that shows you that there are real human beings in town, with feelings and smiles and tears.
Cause at the end of the day we all just want to dance with somebody.
