The choice to move away from every face and place I have ever known.
Out into the unknown I stepped, leaving peace and comfort behind.
At first it was like a holiday, my heart in denial, I couldn’t fathom I would have to stay.
Then slowly it appeared .
The realisation I had to stay.
Alone for the time-being.
But growing less so by the day.
No one can warn you how it feels
because it is so unique to each person.
To my friend it was silent tears at night and withdrawing from social interaction.
I had moments of avalanche, uncontrollable misery crashing down on me.
To another it was a simple negative attitude towards everything.
I am learning to plant myself and grow here.
When all my instincts want to fly home and continue growing in soil that isn’t meant for me.
