Memoir: Three

I spent 9 years living in Ireland, most of my adult life so far. I learned a lot.

Here are some of the things I learned while there, for better or worse:

  • I learned to drink tea with milk – in my home country we mainly drink herbal teas. It took me a good few years to accept the idea of “milky tea”.
  • I learned to eat fried/scrambled eggs for breakfast, sometimes with beans, sausages, or bacon – where I come from we call this a packed-full lunch.
  • I learned to apologise when somebody bumps INTO me – this one is really funny and when I do it here, I cannot help but notice the big-eyed wonder in people’s face expressions.
  • I learned to say “thanks” when I give my money away – perhaps the most peculiar of all, still can’t wrap my head around it.

You decide whether these are positive or negative, I’m afraid I’m too bloody biased :).

I'm Vilina Christoph and I write about my journey of healing and empowerment. A family tragedy triggered my suffering from depression and anxiety+panic attacks. I was consumed by loss and grief, my sense of self was shattered. For the last three years I've been slowly piecing a new "me". I've been tracing my steps backwards, unlearning toxic behaviours and releasing outdated beliefs. It's been a journey of stripping down layers and coming back to my core, my heart, my soul. This is my life story of awakening, remembering my truth and becoming whole again. May it inspires you on your path!
