What is the most important thing to you?
T R I S T A N
Well honestly this took me a while to think about, my first thought was of the future, whether it be about climate change and the planet, some relating to political and governmental issues, career choices and other stresses like that of growing up and look ahead. My second thought was with friends and family, generally people that matter to me and that have helped me in my life and supported me, even the small things. Though it’s hard to think of 1 and I think some people can relate because admittedly this is a not so easy question but I thank Mana for asking.
Right now, I’m just trying to get through a 3 year educational commitment that will hopefully help me get a good paying job in the future and try my best to stay connected with the people I know and care about, while also hoping I’ll get to see someone on the other side of the world but who knows what will happen in a few years time.
Personally, I’d have to say the most important thing in my life (as cheesy and simple as it sounds) it is people: social interaction, experiences, emotions and just connecting has helped me a lot in my life. For me personally if I do nothing with no one for a day or two I can feel pretty low and being/ feeling alone isn’t great and I feel if I didn’t know the people I do today and had met others in the past I don’t think I would still be here today because the world isn’t perfect and I’m sure everyone goes through some tough times but I am thankful and like helping people too. It is important to talk and there are a few things I have learnt in my life whether they’re good or bad, from conversation to judgment or positive criticism: “connection is the key”, “don’t be a dick”, “karma’s a bitch” and take care of your mental health.
