WHY DO YOU LIKE HUGS?
I love hugs because they calm me down. For me hugs sign intimacy, trust, commitment. They are irresistible need to share with others the joy, happiness, excitement, sadness or helplessness. After hug with the right person, I’m always ready to begin again or bravely and with a smile continue where I left off.
WITH WHO DO YOU HUG THE MOST?
With my dear boyfriend and with my gorgeous best friend. The most comfortable hugs are with them.
IS THERE A ONE PARTICULAR HUG THAT YOU WOULD POINT OUT AS YOUR FAVOURITE?
It's a hug with my mom that is totally invaluable and indescribable with words, because gives me strength, purity and essence which reminds me on forgotten values, which support me ... It’s not often, but she is always there with her rising power in hands, at 5 am, when I come to her in tears, thinking that I can not more and I can not go further. She gives me a new life.
IS THERE SOMEONE YOU OWE A HUG?
Dad. Example of real quiet, silent but strong and unconditional love. Dad and I share the same soul. We don’t need a lot of words and touch, because we read between the lines and feel each other. Both of us are not someone who throws emotions and talking loudly about them.
IF YOU COULD PICK ANYONE, WHO WOULD YOU HUG?
AND LASTLY, GIVE US ONE DAMN GOOD REASON WHY WE SHOULD ALL HUG MORE?
You can really, really help someone. And you can make someone’s day more beautiful with hug, and maybe – whole life!
