No expectations! I am free.
I was inspired to join when I read the stories people have shared on Worldpulse. The feedback given was encouraging, positive and caring. I wanted to be in the group. I am torn apart and pulled in different direction. My brain wonders million thoughts at once and my emotions are the same. I see potential to develop our thoughts and expose emotions in a healthy forum. I am more curious to find out what Web 2.0 will evolve into. Web 2.0 has shown that I have real hope to dream and this excites me beyond words.
I am different, that I know but what is expected of me must not be different. I fought to be different, to defy the expectation that I saw as unfair and unjust. Why should I be expected to do the boring things while the boys can have the fun? I want to evolve to a new person, find a new career and find a place I belong. I want to be there for children who are “dead” because of the unjust expectation.
I am excited as a child learning something magical taking part in Web 2.0. The excitement to have the freedom to express my thought and ideas without censorship makes me alive. I was careful of what I wrote in my first introduction. I had more strength in my second journal to express what I felt. I feel empowered to share my feelings. I believe I am listened to and I need someone who really cares to listen. I want to listen only when I care for. I want to read only because I enjoy reading. I want talk only when I want express. This is what Web 2.0 provides for me.
Solutions will come in unlike and unimaginable ways to different people and Web 2.0 has already provided a solution for women around the world to feel connected. To be connected makes me empowered, to belong makes me safer. It is the possibilities that empower me to take action and Web 2.0 is a place to reach out for the peace that I long for my own thoughts and emotions. Web 2.0 is a forum to express without fear, share with compassion, seek guidance without worry and offer a very unique opportunity to help women across the globe.
There is an urge in me to clearly express my stories in words and in pictures and convey my stories and of my friends and women in my islands. I want learn the power of language and share the stories of people who do not have an opportunity to have access to internet. It is challenging to share a burden, long suppressed thoughts and emotions with another person who do not have much empathy or understanding. I know the impact and how far a small gesture of caring could take someone.
