Berlin – Germany ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช

So an opportunity came up for me to travel to Germany (Berlin) on business ( I know, 5 years ago I had nothing now I’m travelling the world!๐Ÿคฃ)

I’m not interested in travel to be honest, it intimidates me, it’s makes me uncomfortable , I miss my family and my ‘safe zone’. Thats why I pushed myself to go, I’ve learned so much from putting myself in positions that I find uncomfortable. This is why I grow and this is why I’m obsessed with winning.

So what do I want to say about Berlin, well I have never been so humbled in all my life. The city is very old and the buildings in some way hold memories, make you feel a range of emotions based on your environment. Its very surreal.

The picture on this feature is of the inside of a building known as the room of reflection. It was built so that people could reflect on the war and the actions taken by the Nazi’s …. in a way to stop this happening again in the future.

Back to BPD, anxiety, sleepless nights dawned on me as they always do when I’m away from home, but I learn to hold these feelings close and try to nurture them into a way to support me. The medication, the zopliclone do help but sometimes I think these feelings remind me of how far I’ve come.

I just want to say this, anyone can get as far as I have, anyone can achieve more than me…dedication, preparation and motivation is what you need to succeed.
