To give

We ask. We want. We demand. To be of importance. To be
heard. To be recognized. To matter, to someone. So many things
that we want, while we should ask instead: what is it, that we
can give?


The way she sat there. The look in her eyes, the gentle smile on her lips. There was something about her. Just by sitting there, by looking me directly in the eyes, I felt that time and logic stopped, that my complete rational being just blended with my surrounding, with our surrounding. Our souls merged – compassion made my heart go wild. No distractions. No denial. Just two human beings feeling each others pain, and healing it just by being there. It was magical. I saw myself in her and it changed everything.
