🏖 Nakon nekog vremena uvidiš tanku crtu između držanja za ruke i vezanja za dušu. I naučiš da voljeti ne znači oslanjati se, a društvo ne znači sigurnost. I naučiš da poljupci nisu ugovori, a pokloni obećanja. I počneš prihvaćati svoje poraze uzdignute glave i otvorenih očiju, s ljupkošću odrasloga čovjeka, umjesto s tugom djeteta. I naučiš da sve putove moraš sagraditi danas jer je sutrašnje tlo suviše nesigurno za planiranje. Nakon nekog vremena naučiš da i sunce opeče ako mu se previše približiš. Stoga sadi svoj osobni vrt i uređuj svoju dušu, umjesto da čekaš da ti netko pokloni cvijeće. I naučiš da možeš mnogo toga pretrpjeti. Da si uistinu snažan. I da uistinu vrijediš.

Ava Karabatic made the announcement on social media. She also shared a number of snaps from a beach in Italy where she is currently on holiday.
In the caption for the photos, she wrote – “I have decided I will run for president. I have been given so many support messages on Instagram and I thank you for that”.
“Politics is my second love. I can not longer watch bad things happen to my country. It is like everyone is blind with healthy eyes, our young people leave the country, birth rates fall”, she added.
Ava Karabatic’s Election Manifesto
Ava’s manifesto, outlined in a blog post, includes the legalization of marijuana and prostitution. Solving the problem of free movement of people, and banning abortion after six weeks of pregnancy.
Earlier this year, Karabatic campaigned for legalizing sex work in the country. Karabatic claimed that it would benefit both the individuals involved and the country as prostitutes would then be required to pay taxes.
She further explained that “there are also psychological reasons, such as ‘healing’ the sexual frustrations that exist in our country”.
Ava also claimed that “I have also studied medicine and am very aware of the dangers of STDs”. She said the dangers can be avoided if prostitution becomes a legal profession”.
