Off the top of my head, I could probably say that what I really want right now is a sense of belonging.
At this stage of my life, I can’t say that I truly belong anywhere. I’m 21 and I feel that almost everything and everyone that I can think of is transitory: people, feelings, perceptions and the city I (again, currently) live in. It seems like I always try to make connections with all these but they keep either changing or going away.
The worst thing about it is that I am that kind of person who becomes attached to people or places too soon. It is both spiritually and physically difficult for me to lose those who I grew to love, or to leave that one place I call home. However, it seems like at this age losing, changing and forgetting are inalienable parts of being – you just have to learn how to cope with it.
That’s why what I really want right now is the feeling that I am a true and a natural part of something real. I want to know, or, at least, believe that there’s a certain place, time and person that would make me want to say “This is where I belong”.
