OUT OF PLACE

Post available in English and Romanian

A “apartine” este un sentiment? Sau este doar nevoia de a fi aprobat si acceptat? Uneori nu imi dau seama.

Sentimentul ca nu mai apartin intr-un loc a inceput sa apara acum ceva vreme. Si nu vorbesc despre un loc anume, cum ar fi la munca, sau intr-un grup de prieteni. Este un context mult mai larg, intreaga societate de exemplu.

Is “belonging” a feeling? Or is it just the need to feel validated and accepted? Because lately, I can’t tell anymore. 

The feeling of not belonging started to creep up on me some time ago. And I am not talking here about a specific place like work, or a friends group. I am talking about a wider context, take our society for example.

2019 – THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE ADVENTURES

Post available in English and Romanian

2019 a fost un an plin pentru mine. Sunt recunoscătoare pentru toate momentele fericite și pentru ca anul acesta am avut multe împliniri. Am schimbat locul de munca, am cumpărat un apartament mic în care sa locuiască mama mea și cu toate cele bune și rele am reușit sa îmi mențin echilibrul.

2019 was quite a ride for me. I am grateful for the happy moments and for the fact that this year left me feeling fulfilled.
I changed a job, I bought a small apartment for my mother to live in, and throughout the emotions and the good and the bad, I maintained my equilibrium.

THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

Post available in English and Romanian

Acest text este continuarea articolului Longing

Traiesc cu impresia ca pentru majoritatea oamenilor fericirea este ceva asemanator cu fata morgana. Este o iluzie care le arata cea mai frumoasa fantezie a lor, insa atunci cand incearca sa ajunga la ea, dispare ca din senin. Daca ma uit in jur, vad ca fericirea are o definitie diferita pentru fiecare dintre noi, iar acest lucru este perfect normal. Insa pentru multi dintre noi, fericirea este un concept nerealist. Munti de bani, mult timp liber, calatorii cat cuprinde si relaxare maxima. Stiti voi, fix cum vedeti in conturile acelea de pe Insta. Fericirea a ajuns ca o opera de arta care sta intr-un muzeu si este admirata, dar este prea scumpa ca sa fie cumparata. Asa ca platim bilete ca sa ne uitam la ea pentru cateva minute si apoi continuam sa ne vedem de viata noastra trista.

This post is a continuation of Longing

I feel that for most people, happiness is something similar to a fata morgana illusion. It’s right there in front of them, displaying the most beautiful fantasy, but when they reach out to grab it, poof! It just disappears! If I stop and look around, happiness has a different definition for each one of us, and that’s perfectly normal. But for many of us, happiness is also unrealistic. It involves a great amount of money, lots of free time, visiting cool places, and chilling all the time. You know, just like that perfect Instagram account you follow. Happiness is like an expensive art piece that belongs in a gallery only to be admired, too expensive to take home. So you pay a ticket to stare at it for a few minutes and then mind your own sad business.
