Останнім часом зчаста замислююсь над тим, для чого люди зустрічають одне одного на своєму шляху, проживають разом найкращі моменти спільного життя і через якесь непорозуміння розходяться. Не бажають поступитися своїми принципами, гордістю заради кохання і щастя. Невже любити і бути самому зі своїм «Я» краще?
Усі думають, а що ж про них подумають інші... Це ж ваше життя, а не "тих інших". Нехай краще заздрять вам і вашій сміливості. Якщо любите, то для чого приховувати?! Радійте цьому! Адже кохання — це найкраще почуття з усіх, воно підносить нас до небес, дає нам крила, штовхає на нові звершення.
Можливо, впустивши можливість одного разу, ви втратите когось найголовнішого в світі і шкодуватимете про це все життя!

Lately I’ve been thinking about the point of people meeting each other, living all the best moments together and then, after some minor disagreements, splitting up in a fraction of a second. Why wouldn’t they just give up their hubris and tenets for love? Is inability of leaving your guidelines behind worth being alone for your lifetime?
Everyone is so concerned with others’ opinion instead of living their own life to the fullest. If you love then why would you hide it. In case people want to be jealous, let them feel jealous of your own courage to express and show real feelings, because the feeling of being in love gives you wings and empowers you so you’re literally ready to conquer the world and it’s wonderful!
Maybe, if you loose the possibility to be happy you will not be given it again so there will be a place for demanding regrets .

В диалоге с жизнью важен не ее вопрос, а наш ответ.
Жизнь как пьеса в театре: важно не то, сколько она длится, а насколько хорошо сыграна.
Translation - English
In dialogue with life our answer is more important than her question.
Life is the same thing as the play in theatre: quality of action is more valuable than the duration.

  I was born in bilingual family so Russian and Ukrainian are my mother tongues. Also I’ve been studying English from the very little age so it’s absolutely vernacular to me. I practice Russian and Ukrainian on a day-to-day basis and also I regularly use English whilst  traveling. In addition I have an experience of being a personal interpreter.
