Tell Me Your Story

22 Dec Tell Me Your Story

Ever since as a young girl I’ve always dreamed of going to places and knowing it’s folks and understanding its culture and history. Being raised as an only girl in a strict family I was told and educated to do as what I’m told. Following orders that I can never go against. My grandfather who set the idea made me realize something. I want to know people, I want to understand them. In my childhood, all I could remember is myself in a room with books and always studying, well with frequent play time with my cousins. I felt that I have to study because it’s the only thing I’m good at, It’s the only thing I can give my family and make myself happy. All those I thought until I became open about how the world works. Questions and questions raided my mind but somehow I can’t figure out the answers. I was a cheerful and talkative girl in my early years but somehow I became lost in my words. I taught myself to stay silent and understand people. Observe what they say and what they do, it’s my way to understand people. Then one night, I dreamed of myself traveling, getting to know people, sight- seeing and I’m happy. I always longed to understand the world and it’s people. I want to know their stories. Stories of wars, love, betrayal ,happiness, family, friends,life, death, partings and uniting people. I want to understand their life, I want to feel a little about themselves. I want to experience the same feeling they had on their stories. I want to get to know them as me, as a human, as a child. As for me, people is the spirit of a country and its scenery is the body  I will travel the world and get to know people and know their stories like a walking documentary, in my mind, like a curious child ready to understand the world.
I just want to see the world in its simplest form, in my child eyes.

    Dear Maria,
    you are very courageous and I think you’re right: sometimes we have so many things to do and we have no time to see the world, to know the people deeply, to understand them… If you have the possibility to travel, do it! Lots of kisses

    Even if people say I’m courageous I really think I’m not, I wasn’t able to help others, and even I needed help . But I will never give up . I’m looking forward to soaring the skies

    Dear Maria,
    everybody has some weaknesses, nobody is perfect. And everybody needs to be helped sometimes! 🙂 I think it’s the normal course of life. You are courageous, really. Most of people are afraid to leave their habits and to live the life deeply. Thanks for your message 🙂 <3 Kisses
