Thank you for offering a listening ear. Although you probably thought I was weird, pouring my heart out to you the very first evening we met. But hey it’s alright because we’ll probably never see each other again.
The thing is, I spoke to you not because I didn’t have any close friends or family to turn to, but because you were easy to speak to. You are really something special. Perhaps it’s because I don’t know you, but around you, all fear of embarrassment and judgement disappears so it’s ok.
I also trust my secrets with you more than my loved ones because there is no reason for you to share my problem with others. Even if you do, chances are that i won’t be affected. After all, you don’t even know my name.
You also gave advice that I’ve never considered. Maybe it’s because we come from different backgrounds and social groups, but your fresh perspectives were a great change from what I’ve been used to.
The best part is, you actually listen. My loved ones almost always focus on how your problems affect them and try to mitigate those instead. They bring up the past, things you have done/said, and even expectations for the future. But you, you’re different. You hear what i have to say now and work on the present.
So thank you for being so easy to talk to stranger.
Have a nice day, Stranger
p.s. may we never see each other again
