What I learned in 2015 is not being afraid to dissociate myself from something I was not agreeing with. It could seem simple written like that, but in reality it’s not.
It has a lot to do with the image you have of what you are doing and of what you are part of. In some way it has also to do with your own dreams and goals. If you can not identify yourself with your current situation in a certain area of your life and you can not imagine to continue living like that in the near future, you have to change something. But taking the decision to change radically an aspect of your life requires courage and determination.
This year I had the courage to take such a decision. I said “Not with me” and it was so simple. I felt better after that: I was smiling again. I’m still facing the consequences of it and I had days where I wasn’t sure that I took the right decision, but in the end I know it was the right thing to do: there was not another way out.
I’m doing much better now, I’m happy with what I have and I feel grateful that I found the courage to stand up and leave when the rules of the game I was playing didn’t match with my own principles.
Don’t be afraid to say that you don’t agree with something and overall don’t be afraid to quit it. Be open to what comes next and trust your instinct: everything will be good. Stay focused and work on yourself, the sun rises every morning.
Listening to the audio book ‘The miracle morning‘ was for me an interesting experience that changed my attitude with time and practice. That’s why I would like to introduce you to its author, Hal Elrod, and suggest you to watch this speech of him. Maybe you could do it during one of the next few days off. It’s really worth!

“The tallest oak in the forest is the tallest not just because it grew from the hardiest acorn; it is the tallest also because no other trees blocked its sunlight, the soil around was deep and rich, no rabbit chewes through its bark as a sapling, and no lumberjack cut it down before it matured”. Malcom Gladwell, Outliers
Would somebody care?
I mean, would somebody take care of me or care about me if I would be suffering from Ebola? Or if I, Angela, would have a disability that affects my life so much that I could not be independent? And if I Fradegradi A. could not follow my passions? If I could not show love to the people I love more than myself? Would somebody care if I would hate myself? And if I should leave my family, friends and land to live in a safer place like the Palestinians are doing? And if I would be aggressive without reasons?
Would somebody come to me and ask me why?
The answer is YES. And the answer will be the same if I ask you would somebody talk about it?!
Now just one more question comes to my mind: would somebody defend me? YES, too.
Why? Well that’s a good question, here my answer.
Because I would and I’m just a person like you. We are people. We all have a brain, we are made of water and muscle, we have blood and, last but not least, we have a heart.
One person and the people make difference.
