Sometimes you need to look back and see how far you’ve come for. A tiny bit of pride can make you much stronger.

” How do you know what a dream is, if you never accomplished one?

How do you know what an adventure is, if you never took part in one? 

How do you know what anguish is, if you never said goodbye to your family and friends?

How do you know what diversity is, if you never lived under the same roof with people  
from all over the world? 

How do you know what tolerance is, if you never had to get used to something different 
 even though you didn’t like it? 

How do you know what autonomy is, if you never had to decide anything by yourself?

How do you know what it means to grow up, if you never stopped being a child to start a 
 new course? 

How do you know what it means to be helpless, if you never wanted to hug someone and 
 had a computer screen preventing you from doing it?

How do you know what distance is, if you never said “I am so far away”?

How do you know what a language is, if you never had to learn one in order to make 
 friends?

How do you know what an opportunity is, if you never caught one?

How do you know what pride is, if you never experienced it while realizing how much you 
 have accomplished?

How do you know what it means to seize the day, if you never saw the 
 time running so fast?

How do you know what a friend is, if the circumstances never showed you the true ones? 

How do you know what a family is, if you never had one that supported you 
 unconditionally? 

How do you know what borders are, if you never crossed yours to see what there is on the 
 other side?

How do you know the world, if you have never been an exchange student? “


It’s from one of my friends’ facebook page, but it’s been a while since these words appeared on AFS group. And it is nice, to see how far you’ve come, especially when you stumble upon the same questions all over again: what the hell am i dong here? what am i going to do with my life later? and hopefully, you’ll come to a conclusion: this is worth the effort.

Good day to you!
