No longer alone
I have a great family and a circle of friends, but there are times that I still feel alone. There is a place in my heart that is untouched but wants to be set free. Many times I have asked myself why and what it is but this remained unanswered.
When I signed up for the World Pulse, I slowly learned to understand. For a long time I have chosen to hide things in my heart and keep them there. That is why I felt alone even in the midst of the people around me. As I read through the journals of women from all over the world it dawned on me that they too have a story to tell. But unselfishly and unafraid they share these sad, lonely, traumatic, happy and fulfilling experiences with everyone.
When I posted my first journals I felt a sense of freedom and release. In a sense it empowered me to come out of my shell, to be myself and to allow others to see me the way I am in the context of my culture and beliefs. I felt satisfied being able to open my soul to people, to women, who I know, will understand the spoken and unspoken words I want to tell. There is so much to say and to know.
The journey of a woman is not easy and I am thankful for the World Pulse and for the emergence of new technologies like Web 2.0 which makes it possible for us to connect and interact … heart to heart and soul to soul. Through this we can touch lives and allow others to move us and encourage us.
It excites me to know what else Web 2.0 can do to bring us all closer together and help us work for a common cause. Despite how far apart we are and how different we are in color, race, beliefs and experiences, we can still be one in heart and mission. We can help each other heal, build each other’s potentials and maybe even just simply be there to listen when there is a need.
Through World Pulse and Web 2.0 no woman will ever feel alone again. I know that the cocoon of pain and struggles that has wrapped us up for a long time will one day release us to become beautiful butterflies that will soar the skies of our dreams. Nothing is impossible now.
