Today I had to say farewell to my co-workers as I leave for Hong Kong tomorrow
Because I switched departments half-way through my internship, I essentially had to say goodbye to two departments of people
Although short-lived, 3-weeks, I still got to know these people
And I’d be lying if I said I didn’t get a little sentimental
It’s the realization that people, humanity, all around the world, is beautiful
All of us, each living these lives, each pursuing individual goals, but together forming a community with other people doing their own sh*t
Hong Kong culture is not something I can say I am fully familiar with. And because I wasn’t sure of the etiquette, I didn’t get the feeling that a hug was appropriate.
But I wish I hugged them
I don’t know if I’ll ever see these people again.
But it’s the same as when I had to leave Singapore last year (where I did get to hug my co-workers before leaving)
3-weeks and I formed genuine connections. Doing this around the world makes me truly and fully love humanity.
This life is so beautiful.
Just make sure you hug the people you care about.
Add Oil, Hong Kong.
