A friend and accomplice of many moments used the following phrase from the book They do not know what they are saying by Maud Mannoni, to define his impression from the day he met me:
This is one of the most beautiful things told to me. Far from being able to confirm whether it is true or not, now I will try to define myself:
I would say that I am a very sensitive and empathetic person. Distracted, but at the same time observant. I like to get carried away by the moments that are offered to me every day in a chaotic way (because I am also chaotic). Committed. Vital. Optimistic and cheerful. An early bird and daytime person. Close and above all natural. I am a lover of the moments offered by life, even if they are small (or precisely because of that). Of broad and changing interests. I am fascinated by human relationships and the behavior of emotions. I am therefore very social, emotional, and rational in a balanced way. I am very patient and tolerant although sometimes I can be very passionate. I love talking and I am full of contradictions and imperfections.
When I was an adolescent, a first-person testimony about the world of the companions fell into my hands for the first time.
Years later, after reading Virginie Despentes and her King Kong Theory, I typed the word “companion” on the computer. I still didn’t know anything about that world but it was something that called my attention. With this I began a long and deep investigation that led me to where I am now. First I was a reader and spectator of testimonies, and then I started to have my own stories. These years have been my richest ones in experiences.
I have met very interesting people who have given me wisdom and moments that I will never forget. Complex people, full of their special features and emotions, that have made me feel lucky by sharing very authentic parts of who they are with me.
For me, this is being a companion. And I am Laura, an independent companion who loves her profession. If you want to know more, you will have to ask me. 😉
