it’s only been 4 months since we started our berlin life, and in a lot of ways we still haven’t landed here properly.
we don’t have a flat, we barely know anyone here, we still work crazy hours.
still. berlin has already changed us.
those who tell you that it doesn’t matter where in the world you live, that if you’re unhappy in one place you’ll be unhappy everywhere, clearly haven’t tried living in many places.
moving to a new city where you don’t know anyone is one of the most profoundly life-changing experiences you can have imo. you get a fresh start, a clean slate, no one expects anything of you, because no one knows you. yet.
so you can reinvent yourself. keep what you liked about the old you and discard the rest.
so far, berlin has given me a lot to think about. it inspires me immensely. i can feel a big change happening in me, and i welcome it. i love change.
i can totally relate to sharks. sink or swim. if i stand still, i’ll drown.
the berlin-jenny is more care-free and giggly than the stockholm-jenny. she is ok with messing up a bit, and wants to have fun. like all the time.
she is also in love. with her city, her job, her lifestyle, her freedom. and with her berlin-david. mostly with him.
if you’re unhappy with the person you’re city has turned you into, here’s my suggestion – come to berlin.
or rather, find a place that could be your berlin.
find your berlin-self.
