I have been pondering upon that idea for a while now and I have finally uncovered the reasons!
You see? We are psychologically connected to those tangible units through the memories we have of them!
Good, funny, strange, bad, sad, happy, crazy and many more memories are the key to our “attachment” to those specific places, streets, buildings etc.
If you leave your country, you will miss your friends, the times you had with them, the memories you shared in every street, every corner, every restaurant… You do not actually miss the corners, the restaurants and so on!
The same applies when you leave an old job… You do miss your desk, but why? Only because you’ve spent numerous hours there working, having lunch with your colleagues, joking with your boss, looking for an ashtray!
Again, you do not only miss the good memories; you get to a point where you miss the bad memories as well… You miss the small arguments, the let downs, the crazy customers!
Does any of this make sense?
Sweet dreams my old office… Sweet dreams Lebanon…
