My loneliness in Mosul....
They share me my thoughts ,my feelings, my fear &pray for my family .
I did not have close friends since I moved to Mosul . I thought it is because of the different viewpoints& the way of thinking between the people here & people of Baghdad where I am from. Although we are all from one country ,but we differ in our life style .
I miss my life in Baghdad a lot .When I go there I feel like I am returned back to life again .I have many people there who care about me & we can have great time together. I miss my family , our neighbors , my old friends in the high school,& I miss the family's friends. There I can talk about every thing, I can discuss all the issues freely.
I thought the reason behind my loneliness here is the difference between me & the people here . But what about my new blog friends , we are from different nations , we have different viewpoints ,different religions & we differ in our life style. Those new INVISIBLE friends are very supportive, they show me their understanding , their empathies , even their disagreements.
But I think the people here in Mosul don’t like the one how disagree with them ,or have different opinions. They even don’t like to have strong relationships out of the family. I don’t really try to generalize but that what I found from the people I was in contact with along my 15 years in Mosul.Like those in the collage ,at work &even among my husband's Family &relatives. I am very much in need to people that we can share things together , I can be my self among them ,I can express my feelings &my opinions freely .Specially in this life where we all suffer a lot , we need to support each other .
In the war &and many many months later I didn't have any kind of connection with my family ,no phone services, no internet ,nothing at all. I was dispirit & lonely with no one around. The only family who sympathize with me is my husband's uncle. But we are from different generations…
So with you my dear invisible anonymous friends ,I will be as I am, humorous , hopeful &friendly ¬ depressed ,anxious, nor lonely.
Keep in touch ….
