Why we do weird things sometimes?
Life is so strange. A lot of beautiful things are around us but we do not attach much importance to them. So am I, for example, grew up in a small town of Kamyanets-Podilsky in Ukraine, which is visited by a large number of tourists every year. Because it is famous for its canyon and fortress not only in my country but also abroad. I very often walk with my family around the city and constantly see these beauties but I do not pay much attention to them. And sometimes I even wonder why so many people are coming here, what is so unusual or beautiful they see?
But recently I was leaving to travel for three months to Europe and when I came back I saw my city from the new side. It is really very beautiful. A majestic ancient fortress of stone with beautiful towers stands unapproachably on a rock. A large canyon covered with trees, here and there are small waterfalls cascade down into a small river at the bottom. A lot of greenery, a lot, a feeling that the city is in the middle of the forest. It is unusual for its combination of nature and buildings. How did I not notice this before?
Why is it not peculiar for people to see all the beauty that surrounds them? And why do people come from somewhere to admire all this beauty but those who live here cease to see it every day?
Strange, but sometimes it is the same with people. To those who are near, we are getting used to, and everything they do for us we take as usual and not very much appreciate it. Although no one owes us anything. But in fact, we should be grateful to them for being close. Appreciate the people close to you.
