“…sometimes one feels freer speaking to a stranger than to people one knows. Why is that? Probably because a stranger sees us the way we are, not as he wishes to think we are.”
Strangers. We are taught not to talk to strangers, they can be the kidnappers or murderers. But I don’t believe in that. Every person in this world has stories, stories that make them who they are. We all are made up of stories, we are inspired from stories. Every stranger has a lot of things for us, countless lessons to be learned. The solutions to all of our problems and maybe the next best friend.
Recently I started talking to a person(stranger) Over mail, and slowly, slowly we kind of become close friends. There were so many things to learn from her, she taught me so many things. I was inspired by her battles and her battle’s start motivating me to do better in my life. I always believe that even the people you don’t know can transform your life. Everyone has a different perspective about life, and while you talk to strangers and listen to their perspective, the way you think about world starts changing, and you start becoming a better person.
We need to realize that every person is going through or has gone through some problems, and listening to their problems surely helps us to conquer our problems.
Some people are stronger than you can even imagine, and she is one of them. Most of the most valuable lessons I have learned, has come from strangers.
As it says that, we need to break rules, to live freely, so let’s for once break this golden rule of childhood, “Remember, don’t talk to strangers.”
Forget that such rules, even exist, go out and talk to a stranger, and see your life changing.
Each time you say hello to a stranger, your heart acknowledges over and over again that we are all family.
This post is dedicated to her, I would love to be your friend forever, hopefully we will be friend forever. Thanks for inspiring me.
Share your experience of talking to a stranger, and if you wish to talk to me, mail me. (Check “about the author” page)
