There is a stats feature in my blog where I can see how many people visited or read my posts for the day, weeks, months or the year to date.
This photo is from last month to today of this year. Number 1 on the stats is USA followed by China, India on 3rd and Philippines on 4th. The other countries are Canada, Indonesia, UK, Faroe Islands, Russia, South Africa, Northern Mariana Islands, France, Australia, Ecuador and Pakistan.
Sometimes, I wonder what made them read my posts? What particular words are they looking for? Do they find my stories relatable? And if I ever made a difference in their day?
You know what else? I felt like, there are more support, understanding and connection between strangers….
And I think I know why.
Because, the people that know us…
They think that we are only the things that they see us do and the things that they hear us say. Everything else that are not talked about and seen are nothing but make believe things.
With strangers, it’s more of the unseen and the unheard that they get to know and see.
And those unheard and unseen things…
𝐓𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐥.
For those who think they know us,
I believe, judgment happens before everything else.
They not only see it,
But feel it.
The unseen and the unheard.
They choose to believe.
And in between,
Oceans, islands, continents, countries and barriers…
Connections are made, support felt and friendships are born.
