My life

I was born and raised in a very loving family.
My father and my mother were very affectionate.
My father loved my mother, me and my sister so much.

They say that only mothers are affectionate,
but they say that because they never met my father.
He was such a loving human being.
The love and affection he had for his family
was unbelievable and had absolutely no end.
It was bigger than the universe.

I have such lovely memories from my childhood,
which come in direct contrast from the experiences
I gained in the playground, school,
army (every Greek male has to go to the army),
work, living in society in general.

The only thing that was a positive experience
in my life besides my family
was the education I got in Cranfield,
when I did my MSc there
and working for companies that understand
what a systems engineer’s job is all about.

Since both my parents worked in two jobs each,
in order to make ends meet,
I was practically raised by my grandmother, Eirini,
who was literally a saint person.
There never existed a better person in the world,
nor will a better person ever exist.
And she would always praise me
for having a strong feeling of compassion for others.
So, this is what I actually am:
A person with a strong feeling of compassion.
