THE REFUGEES … A STORY ABOUT CHANGE
If there is something i love the most in this life …. I believe it is … socializing with the people i meet on the timeline of my life.
And i smile …. seeing what might even look as a total nonsense ….cause i met such a large spectrum of totally different souls.
Quite soon after the war from Ukraine started …. me and my family hosted people coming from there to my country.
I had the chance to meet in this way … lots of lost souls …. going to an unclear direction … having no idea about what will happen tomorrow.
They were on the path of a forced change …. and it was no chance as things to become better quite soon.… or at least not in the near future.
Being retired …. not having what to do anyway … spent all my time in their company.
I just loved their presence.
Some … connected with me from the first second …. but i also met some that found too weird that i was helping them and did not wanted to be so friendly from the beginning.
In the end …. I became the friend of all of them.
It was probably the first time in my life when i was investing all my time and energy trying to help the others …. and forget about my own interests.
And that was something … new for me.
It looked like … i was following a new path for my life … and i liked it.
One of the ladies …. told me one day …. “Becoming a refugee is about change … and mainly changing our values in life.
Not so long time ago … i cared a lot about what new jacket or shoes i will buy … but now after losing all the 3 houses we owned in Mariupol … and almost all my clothes and shoes … i simple smile.
Today i wear clothes from the centers created for helping the refugees … but i am happy that me and my family … are alive … and together.
I don’t know if i really became a better soul … but I totally changed my values of life.”
For that lady …. being a refugees was a totally new experience … same as for myself helping the others was a totally new way of spending my life.
Without realizing …. I started little by little to change my values …. and my life.
2 years ago if someone would tell me that i will spend my time like that … i would laugh saying that is a horrible joke … but today … i just love my new friends … the ukrainian refugees.
And i love them mostly… cause in their companion i succeeded to show to the world the beautiful side of myself.
And it was … so damn easy … and i wonder why i haven’t done that long time ago.
Today i could have been a totally different person …. one with beautiful values … as human being.
But you see … it’s never too late.
So … the russian-ukrainian war was a great opportunity … for myself.
Sounds weird … but it really was the right time for me and maybe many others to see life from a totally different perspective.
And once the process of change started i just hoped that everything will continue for the inner self in the same style.
