“She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn’t beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul. She is beautiful.” — F. Scott Fitzgerald

Anonymous asked: today i got to know that i move to berlin. that i have to change everything in my life. i was waiting for that day the last previous year and now im just sad and wanna stay in my homecountry. im afraid. what can u suggest?

hello there. wow. it sounds like this was something you were looking forward to until quite recently – perhaps a part of you is still a little thrilled about it. it’s natural to be afraid, and i know moving to another country is incredibly momentous, and sometimes it’s inevitable. if leaving saddens you, then don’t let yourself be completely taken away. keep ties with those who love you, keep in contact however you like, maybe even write letters or send them postcards once you move. find support through them to cope with the change. you could tell them your new stories, and ask them how things are back where they are. remember, you can always go back to visit. don’t hold back in your new place. if moving has to happen, at least embrace it as much as you can. accept that it could be different or it might not be all that different. in spite of that, tell yourself that soon it won’t be a new place anymore, it’ll be a familiar place. everything takes time. be patient and kind to yourself and others, good things will happen. meet new people and learn their stories, i’m sure you’ll find them to be as interesting as they will find you. and don’t forget to look out for the good things. that’s all i’ll say now because i have to go to class, but feel free to message me again if you’d like to idk, and if you’d rather talk off-anon then i’m down for that too. i hope this was a little bit helpful and i’m sure you will do wonderfully in berlin!
