What happens when you fall in love abroad?
I thought that would be a question I would never need to figure out the answer to, a problem I would never face. But sometimes life doesn’t happen the way you think it will. But the reality is I’ve met someone and it’s really changed everything.
The most difficult piece of all this is not knowing what the future holds, my future is so blurry, I have no set plans, no clear path. And while that makes all the possibilities completely endless it also is quite scary… what will I choose next, will it be something with him or will it be something by myself. If I choose to make my next step with him, is that the right thing to be doing? But if I make my next move without him, have I let go of something I should’ve held on to?
This is the blessing and the curse about meeting someone abroad, they come from a completely different place than you. I’m from the United States and he’s from Colombia, and here we both are in Spain.
While I have no clue what the future holds for us, I’m trying to just enjoy the moments that I have with him here in Barcelona.
I don’t know what the right thing is to do, I’m not even sure if there is a right thing to do. But I’m trying to enjoy the time now, and think carefully about the future, but not to over think it.
Life is full of uncertainty.
In the end we only regret the chances we didn’t take, relationships we were afraid to have, and the decisions we waited to long to make.
