Visualizing how a conversation will go down.

As some of you might know by reading my blog posts: “Your gut feeling is always right. Follow it!” & “Being taken for granted.”

I’m announcing my host family that I’m leaving them for another family. — Gosh this sounds an awful lot like a bad break-up. But how would I know? I’ve never dated anyone… (read: “The Story Of A Virgin”)

And all week I’ve been preparing my speech in my head and it goes like this:

“It’s not you…”  Didn’t I tell you that it sounded an awful lot like a break-up speech?!

Anyway, I’m not going to go into further details about my speech because it’s somewhat private although I’m still blogging about it… — Damn those online content creators! Always sharing every bits of their lives as if anyone cared about them…

All that to say that the moment has come. Today, on Friday the 13th, — Oh my gosh… Is it really Friday the 13th?! Well talk about a coïncidence!

As I was saying, today I’m announcing to my host family that I’m leaving at the end of the month. And although I’m extremely scared because I don’t want to hurt their feelings, I’m actually excited and relieved. I need to stand up for myself and I need to fight for my own happiness and not always think about everybody else’s happiness. If you had told me months ago that I’d be making this decision right now and I’d actually follow through with it I’d think that you’re being ridiculous because I know myself and I’m too scared to make such big decisions. But I guess that’s what happens when you’re an adult!

Wish me luck! — Actually don’t! I don’t believe in luck and I don’t like luck. I only trust that everything will go somewhat nicely and that this will be one of the best decisions I’ve ever taken.
