Three weeks ago I left my family and friends behind to start a brand new adventure! I was heading to Italy to spend a year with a spectacular host family just a 30 minute metro ride away from the booming city of Milan! I packed all my bags and was so excited! Now, three weeks in, I can truly admit, they have been some of the best and worst weeks of my entire life.
I say best for very few reasons. The first being the incredible friends I have made. Throughout just three weeks I have met so many unique and genuine people and I will forever be thankful for that! The second, being the amount that I have grown. From the moment I went through security in my home town I was forced to grow up and learn constantly. I will never forget the lessons I have learned while away from home.
However, these lessons have been learned through many moments and experiences that have made these past three weeks the worst of my life. I could without hesitation describe them as the three weeks from hell. I ended up with a host family that not only didn’t make me feel welcome, but drove me absolutely insane. I won’t describe all the in between problems with you. What I will tell you, is that it ended with my host mom yelling at me for half an hour straight and saying horrible things to me. After that I decided I needed to get as far away from that house as possible. The next morning my bags were packed and I headed to milan on the metro! I’m currently in a hotel awaiting my flight to prague. I decided I wanted to use these couple days alone in a hotel room to relax and gather myself. Instead, my mind is being bombarded with the words that were so angrily screamed in my tear stained face. Instead, the stress of the last three weeks is catching up to my body causing headaches, nausea, fatigue, and cramping in my muscles. Instead I am forced to spend hundreds of dollars on flights and accommodations to get myself into a safe place where people care for me and about me.
When you treat somebody like scum it follows them. No matter how safe they are, no matter how many friends they are surrounded by, your words follow them. Treat people with the respect that they deserve. Everyone is valuable.
