The Reason

Why am I here?

Why am I here?

Not in the deep, soul searching way but simply, why did I download this application and start writing this morning?

Earlier this week in a ‘breaking the ice’ activity, I was asked the question, “What is your greatest fear?”

As we went around the circle people said things like spiders, lightning and even fruit. One person said specifically bananas and another, fruit in general!

I was shocked.

I said hights, so that I would seem easy going and maybe not as complex and deep as I am. People tend to do stupid things like that; lie about who they really are in order to fit into their social group or their surroundings.

I do it too. And that is the reason why I am here. 

I am here to fight my biggest fear – to be forgotten. I don’t wish to pursue fame or make a huge change in the world rather on a smaller, more personal scale. I don’t want my thoughts or memories to disappear with time, as I feel like most good thoughts and memories do..

I hope that this will be a place where I can write and let my feelings out. A place where I can bring order to the thoughts in my head and express the validation behind my actions. A place where I can tell stories, both those of people who I cross and my own. 

So I’m not sure how this all works but I hope that it turns out well and I hope that you enjoy it.
