R like Relate… A to Z Challenge

lettre-r-sur-les-des_21074894 (1)

Today’s Daily Prompt, relate, is speaking to me a lot. It is something that I’ve often felt since I started following bloggers. Very often.

Reading other people’s stories, learning about their lives, their struggles, their dreams and their deceptions has been and still is very eye opening.

I regularly discover posts that, though writen in a different style than mine, express exactly how I feel, or have felt. I read a lot of experiences that match where I’ve been and what I’ve done.

Sometimes, other bloggers’ thoughts are so familiar, that I almost feel like they are writing about me. I know it’s not the case. But relating to so many people’s lives gives my ego a slap in the face, in a good way. It is humbling.

I also follow so many people who have it so much harder than me. Wether challenged mentally, physically, socially or financially, I read these stories of warrior men and women that I so admire for their inner strength and resilience. People who suffer from abuse, and people who suffer from great loss of all kinds.

Who am I to complain?

Whining seems less and less like an option. I am not one of these people who have found a way to make the best out of every situation, but I try my best to remind myself about how many familiar faces are going through similar if not worse frustrations and/or pain than mine.

I know… Not a very funny post. But it’s over now…

We’re now back to our usual programs!

    1. I totally agree, Irene! But what’s special here is that people speak openly about their feelings… In “real life” people are rarely as open, which means that a coworker could be facing a similar struggle I am facing, but if we don’t talk about it, we’ll never get to relate… WordPress facilitates the sharing a lot… 🙂
