Moving to a new country is one of the most challenging experiences you will ever face. Not only are you assimilating to a new culture, a new way of thinking, of acting, but also of living your daily life.. because now you don’t know what the best brand of cereal is, or why you need a ticket to line up at the post office, or how much you relied on the freedom of having a car. But most difficult of all, is making lasting and meaningful connections.
But I believe true love knows neither time nor distance. This beautiful girl walked into work one day, and within hours I knew she would become one of my nearest and dearest. Not only did I have the joy of working with her, admiring her professional demeanour and sharp intellect, but more importantly I became aware of how kind and empathetic she was.
It is challenging making friends even when people go through the best of times, but this girl has been unwaveringly supportive over the last year, while I cried about being homesick, or cried about what career path was right for me, felt defeated after personal trials, called me after every bad day, let me sleep at her house because I felt lonely, and now continues to put a smile on my face and entertains my ridiculous obsession with anything floral and girly.
If you have someone in your life who you couldn’t live without, make sure they know. Tamsin I love you with all my heart, thank you for being a friend, a sister and a soul mate 💜
