To: Stranger

From: A fellow stranger

It’s funny how I’m more comfortable telling you about my misery and sharing my personal stories when you’re entitled not to care yet you still give me all these unsolicited advice. You were there when I thought I was the only one who was feeling what I was feeling— I wasn’t alone. I don’t know you but it feels like I do. It’s also quite funny that I don’t feel any awkwardness to tell you about my true self and to show you my vulnerability. You helped me in so many ways that you don’t even know, when my own family and friends wouldn’t understand me— you did. You don’t judge and you’re honest which is why I often come to you but even though you help me become me, I still get this feeling that it’s not enough. I’m grateful to have you but behind it I still wish that whatever I have shared with you I could do the same with someone who is close to me. I still wish that the person who I want to share my stories with would be someone I regularly see in the flesh because I have to admit I don’t care what everybody else thinks except what the people around me thinks. I am grateful to you I just wish I have the confidence to tell them this.

This is for all the strangers we have encountered, we all have that person that we have shared our thoughts and feelings to who we don’t really know but we were very comfortable to pour our hearts out.

I wrote this because I often find myself being more open to “strangers” in the form of this blog. I felt like I have built connections here that I don’t have with my own friends and family because with this blog I am more me than what I am in person. At some point I think about how nice all of these are but I also wish my friends and family know this side of me but I don’t let them because of judgments and I also wanted to have my own space as well.

This post is also an appreciation post to all my blogging friends out there. I am grateful for all the comments and followers this blog has, I mean we’re at 880 followers. I still can’t believe it, I remember writing my first blog post and saying that I don’t even care if someone will read it or not but here we are now. Okay, before I get emotional I am seriously thankful for every comments, messages and views that I have gotten here, you guys helped me go through my darkest times even just by being a reader of your blogs you inspire and motivate me.

I am not that active anymore here on WordPress like I am back then where I regularly post everyday and I’ve been meaning to write the reason why (maybe on my next post) So, I’ve been in and out of here trying to be updated with what you guys write and I am also a silent reader that is why I am taking this chance to share some of my fave blogs that I follow here on WordPress, some are old blogs that I have been following for a while and I’m pretty much familiar with and some are new blogs that I have followed just recently. These are some blogs that inspire and motivate me and you should follow them as well if you haven’t already.

  • Sticky Situation – formerly Questions From A Teenager and probably one of my favorites, I relate so much with what she writes about life, the struggles, the frustrations. She just did a relaunch for her blog Sticky Situation go over there now because the aesthetic of the blog is just very pleasing.
  • SaaniaSparkle – I just recently follow this blog, something that I love about a blog is one that makes me think and contemplate on different versions of how people see life. Like with this one it’s very fascinating to read a very well written life philosophy.

I am sucker for poetry and word stories. I really like poetry where words are well constructed and great flow of story. These three blogs write exquisitely.

These are just some of the blogs that I can name on the top of my head, I’ll probably do another and share some blogs or articles that I really like.

Any blog recommendations that I could read? Share it in the comment section below, thanks!

  1. Perhaps the reason we find it easier to open up to strangers is that we make, and take, no commitment. We also sometimes assume they pay more attention than they do !

  2. I enjoyed reading your blogs and then I stopped my Word Press interactions for a long while and lost track of everyone as well. So, welcome back to us both. I’ve always enjoyed your authentic self! Joy! Janice
