Life can be like swimming. Sometimes you need to swim against the tide, sometimes you will face bigger waves.
But always choosing your own stroke.
Being together. Just because. No words necessary.
Letting our silence do the talking. Together.
I hope that you can trust
That things will work out
that you will work it out
that everything will be worked out
Listen to yourself.
To what is silenced but wants to be heard.
That’s the first step to conversation.
Look at the sun and how it shines.
Just for you. Especially for you.
a shiny face,
your head on cloud nine,
the wind in your hair.
It has taken me some time.
But now I’m starting to get.
That I am who I am and the world is the world.
That some friction is fine.
My silence clashing with the roaring world.
Listen. Can you hear? My heart. It’s beating.
Together what was heavy, becomes light.
You are not alone. Get inspired by other students' stories about vulnerability and doubt. But above all about the power of connectedness.
