Ever since I first found out about Netflix I have watched countless amout of series.
Some had several seasons. Others were shorter.
But nevertheless the length, I would always find a way to get attached to the characters.
I want to know about their background story, their personal preferences.
I want to be their friend. (except for the murders 😉 )
And then, that moment comes.
The last episode.
No matter if it is a peaceful, open or sad ending, I am always disappointed.
It shouldn’t have ended in the first place!
“And now what?”, Jasper asked me when we just finished the last episode of an awesome series, “Find a next one?”.
The “worst” question.
Now I have to invest time in getting to know and liking the new characters again.
And I know already now, it won’t last forever.
About 2 weeks ago I was assigned to train new colleagues from abroad.
We spend significant time together going through the material, driving to another location, having dinner in the evenings.
And not to forget the Gin & Tonics ending in a lot of laughter or more person talk.
I knew from the beginning they would be here “only” for a month.
The half of that has passed already.
Although they are very nice people, a part of me wished that I just kept it very formal.
Goodbye would have been easier.
I am the type of person who easily gets attached to people.
Yet, as contradictory as it might sound, I can also easily let go of things and people.
But this only if I am the one leaving.
If I am the one stepping on that plane, I feel either too tired or too excited for my next adventure.
If I am the one left on the airport, I will be the one crying.
Long time back, I spend a year doing a more spiritual type of yoga.
We were assigned to draw something.
I spend a lot of time on my drawing and it looked really nice.
“Now”, the yoga instructor said, “it’s time to tear the paper”.
This is the first time I learned about “letting go”.
Do you easily get attached to things or people?
Or can you let go easily?
