Chaos Theory says that a small change that occurs at the beginning of any event can have unknown consequences in the future. But don’t be fooled by the word “chaos”, contrary to what it seems, it doesn’t necessarily mean something negative.
For me, this small fact of downloading an app with such a different idea completely changed my life and in a spectacular way. I first downloaded the app in 2019, and to be honest I didn’t have much pretensions about it (sorry Team Slowly). But thanks to you I had the opportunity to meet different people and cultures, make friends, discover new stories and also to get to know myself better.
I’ve always considered myself an introvert and I’ve never used any social network with the aim of chatting with other people and when I came across Slowly its proposal caught my attention. I wouldn’t have to deal with instant messages or appearances and although this idea seems controversial nowadays, it works amazingly and unlike many apps, here you will always have people willing to listen to you, whether to know how it went your day or for whatever subject you have on your mind. Nowadays I can say that I learned a lot with the app, mainly about how to accept myself more and how to see the world in a different way.
Through the app I met my best friend and I love her more than the distance that separates us. We have already exchanged physical letters a few times and I really hope that we continue with this tradition, because each letter exchanged and each message is special. I will carry you in my heart for the rest of my life, Vitória Gabriela.
I can only thank the Slowly Team and everyone I corresponded with. Thank you all!
