I joined Slowly a random evening when I didn’t know what else to do… I was going through rough waters, and stayed away from the people I was acquainted with. So, for the first time in my whole life I thought of talking to strangers anonymously. I was skeptical at first. I even considered myself a person no one wanted to know. Contrary to my opinion, I met people who had similar viewpoints and stories, and some of them even counselled me in my tough times. I got to know people around the World and heck, it was fun. I got to know about customs and traditions across the planet, and I was astonished to know how similar they were… I realized that ‘Unity in Diversity’ doesn’t just apply to my country , but throughout the World.
If I had to select a single pen pal , it would be tough. There are many who have changed my perspective and made me a positive person. Yet, I would like to mention one who struck a chord somewhere.
I sent him a request straight away after reading his profile. I felt we had too much in common. Initial conversation was a formal one, but then we chose to share our views on Science, and everything changed. We talked about Science, languages we knew, philosophy, and everything under the Sun. I never told him, but I’d never met someone with views so similar to mine. It was a really great conversation, where he shared with me some concepts of philosophy and Science I had never heard before – like the ‘Circularity of time‘.
Interacting him also helped me to reconsider my goals (for good!!) and get my focus back. Unfortunately, he left the app for some reason. I remember a quote he once said “Any phase in our life doesn’t end till we learn something fruitful from it“, and I guess, in our short acquaintance, I did learn a lot.
So Thanks to my pen pal !!! Stay blessed wherever you are!!
