About Life ... Sobre a vida ...

We all breath, cry, feel lonely, love regardless of our race, gender or orientation. We all crave the human touch at some stage in our lives, someone to hold, someone to simply be there for us during our moments of need. After all, everyone in this life deserves "happiness". In the form that corresponds our personal point of view...

Repainting Life, Friendships, Relationships...


Changes... Changes in life... Changes in people's behaviour... Changes in something that you thought it would remain in its form forever... A friendship, a relationship, a house, a neighborhood, a job...

Why is it so difficult for one to accept those modifications? Why are people so attached to things, places, situations? Are we unable to confront with the alteration of our own personal universe? Why even when we meet a person in our course of life we think that it will always be there, just as we met him?

Is it our denial of the new? The unknown? The unheard-of? Are we sitting comfortable in our couch leading quietly our lives? What happened to risk, adventure, and in case of relationships, overcoming obstacles in order to maintain a functional relationship regardless of the emerging difficulties? On the other hand, it may concern even our fear of ourselves. We dread the fact that we may not arise to the occasion of shifting from a situation that kept going for a long, or short - it doesn't matter as long as it was functional - time. We are not confident that the other one will keep his promises, his word of 'staying in touch, like nothing ever changed'.

However, change, is what it's all about. Fresh stimuli, new commitments in every day life, combined frequently with a new working or living environment, will slowly, but inevitably draw away that person and eventually convert it to a long and distant memory...

Unless...

Well, unless honesty, pride and true bonds exist... And that is a rarity nowadays. Relationships, either friendly or erotic, are becoming uninterruptedly superficial... Haven't you found yourself wondering about who's your real friend? Is this person I sleep with, my real love? My other half that would do anything for me?

No, it's not vanity, nor egoism. It's our need to be loved and love back in return. It's our congenital urge of company. Man is not a solitary being. And it might sound utopic or unrealistic saying that, everyone deep inside, after finding the right person, never looses contact, no matter how many changes occur, there will always be a way to feel together, to be together. Companionship. As long as everyone involved has the same passion and determination...And believe me when I'm telling you this, only time can reveal the actual results of that.. So don't be anxious, don't force things to happen. Patience pays extremely well in these situations.

Seed and then simply wait, to crop...

Blessed art thou who hast found true friendship, let alone, true love.
