A reason why converting is hard

It’s hard to be an outsider. It’s hard to put yourself in a situation where you are surrounded by people who know more than you. People who all have something in common, and you don’t. 

It is hard. 

It’s like being the new kid at school, it’s like learning a new language, it’s like learning to paint for the very first time.

But like all those things, companionship with others, pursuit and passion for knowledge, deep thought and practice, will make to process easier and result in something truly beautiful.

“Life is precious, never take it for granted. It can end in a blink of an eye so… enjoy the pleasantries that life has to offer because once it’s gone, you’ll never get it back.”
