Confessions of a life freak
Just a 15 year old trying to figure out life!
2020 has been one wild ride. It has been a rough year for many if not all. Things beyond our wildest dreams happened. Kind of like Charlie Brooker wanted us to experience the 6th season of black mirror rather than watching it.
As bad as it was for me, and everyone else, it taught me one very important life lesson that I will never forget.
2020 taught me that the word ‘family’ means more than just a group of people related by blood.
These are the people that accept you for who you are, with whom you can sing your heart out. The people you call when you get a flat tire, or when you see something on the tv that reminds you of them. They give you that peaceful silence, and that stomach ache you get when you laugh a lot.
The people who have the power to change your mood in seconds without realizing it. The people you stay awake with all night even though you have work the next day.
It is the people who give you that feeling of euphoria when you see them at the airport. It is the sadness that consumes you when you miss that person in the middle of the day. It is the wishing that they were here. These are your middle of the night, your no matter what people.
I now believe that family doesn’t necessarily have to be blood, It can be that childhood best friend you haven’t talked to in years, it can be that new friend you made online, it can be your favourite singer or your sister’s best friend. Family is the peace you long for in all the chaos, it is the late night gossips, it is those everyday chai wala sessions. It is love.
