homesick without a home
I’ve been feeling homesick with a painful yearning for nostalgia, but I’m not even sure where “home” really is. Actually, I don’t even know what or whom I’m missing. All I know is, I have a really fervent feeling of being incomplete.
It feels as if everyone and everything that keeps me grounded is quickly drifting away. Every time I try to hang on to something familiar, my arm gets slapped and I am forced to let go. One by one, I am losing what defines me, listlessly floating until I embrace change and become someone else.
Surreal, uncertain, overwhelming…but somehow still invigorating.
There’s a lot to process and a lot to overcome but for now, I survive by the infamous Winnie the Pooh quote: “Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” A. A. Milne
