Noora talking to Sana about Yousef reminded me when Noora was talking to Vilde about food. She notices something about her friend, wants to help but also doesn’t wanna invade them.

Everyone enters this life with a backpack filled with everything you need to be able to live. Things like happiness, the color of your eyes and the way your laughter sounds. But also what you need to survive the harder parts of living; how do you deal with sadness, loss and empty and worthless feelings. No one is the same, no one is perfect. and neither are our backpacks. We will have to deal with things for which we couldn’t prepare, our backpacks might have no supplies for every situation we’ll experience. And sometimes, someone comes down from heaven to live the amazing life that’s given with an almost empty backpack. A lot of things are forgotten and the bottom is already visable. And when you reach the bottom and the backpack is completely empty you have to return home, which is called heaven. Some of us stay for a really long time and others return home soon because they feel homesick or have reached the bottom of the backpack. And they might never come back to us.
