Do not forget about you

by Valentina De Simone

It’s been an year since now that I’ve started to be a part of “The eat culture blog”. This anniversary takes me back to The passed months so I’ve spent some time reading old extracts from me, trying to catch some differences in my personality or in The way I live.

It’s been a while since My first essay has been published online and a lot of things happened in 12 months.
More than I could have ever imagined.
many things, many people: people who came into or run outo my life…. Some of them than came back again saying sorry, others went away and never came back and me either I’ve done The same.

So As I look through The mirror staring at my young-adult face and body; Recently I’ve started to stare at my inner state of soul, mind and heart. Looking for changes due to the age, The dissapointment, The sadness and The happiness too.

My heart is elder than before and its quite sad or tired sometimes, but he has not enough to refuse to celebrate its self every single day, reconizing its value. That’s why I decided to entitle this article “do not forget about you”

When it’s clear that you’re making yourself little and little to stay in someone else’s life you should Ask yourself if you’re leaving an hole (a big one) in your life.
Have you ever thought, during one of your overthinking sessions, that basically you’re worth? You are worth to be loved and respected? Have you ever considered The possibility that reconizing it yourself first is The first step to male others do The same?

I’m not talking about your ego, which is a mere construction that do not even exisits, Did you know about it? Me either, I’ve had to ignore it in order to not ignore myself, The true one and what makes me really happy.

Don’t forget about ourselves means choosing to stay where you’re considered a resource, not an heavy due.
“Your role is not so important for this agency” quotes like this are not to Be accepted. Your salary shouldn’t ever been a sort of a moral redemption, but something you deserve.
Do not forget about yourself means quit being hurt a job.

Do not forget about yourself stands also for “listening yourself”. You don’t have to accept a friendship or a relationship Which takes you for granted and never allow you to cross an imaginary line. You have to Be appriciated for Who you reallly are.

Dare to Be amazed but The fullness of life and un The act of GOING THE EXTRAMILE.
I was scared to go The extramile. I’ve been fighiting against it for years but now it gives me tons of satisfaction.
Are you feeling bored? Go The extramile.
Just know that is cheaper that some alchool bing or drug, yes, but The thight is higher.
Dare to have a job you Can descrive in 5 o 7 simile italian words. Dare to see that it you’re feeling more and more satified with it than with any other job before.

Dare to Be irreplaceble. Choose to Be irreplaceble with kindness and honesty.

Remeber that Who come into you life don’t ho really away, never, even if he/her walks away. The truth is that, like passengers, we forget things in board, as communters, as subscribers, but ad my analist says: you are The one who drive The train.

Finally takes with you The awareness that if “accepting The terms of” someone.
Means “accepting Someone else’s terms of “ to you, YOU HAVE TO GO AWAY.

I know its’hard. People don’t like to see you getting move from The place they have put you in but you are not a tree, you Can move and get out: out of a prejudice, out of a restaurant, out of a life… and entering another one: yours.

Conquere your place,

Do not forget about you.

Community Manager with a passion for sociology, I've lived for six years between Padua and Milan. Once I wrote an odd theory on Mathematics, on a Mathematics task. I took zero and the professor told me that I had to find an outlet for my too much imagination, if I wanted to live in the real world. I bought a notepad and began to write to him everything that was going through my head, so love for writing was born, love for expression.
