Just Living Diversity

マニラでのソーシャルワークとの出会い記録から、日本のソーシャルワーク×多文化/法的支援、インドで暮らし、働き、旅するカラフルさ、インド&野草ごはん、身体を解すこと、レジリエンス/回復についての試行錯誤を記録したく。 私もあなたも、ゆるく受けいれて生きていけるといいなと祈りながら。

being honest

Being honest and staying honestly is important for your health!!


While taking a bath ,
I found myself feeling that how each of us express love might be unique respectively.

When you say that you wanna hug me or kiss me n ask me how, I feel happy n it's nice of you that you can say that directly n honestly.

At the same time, i also feel awkward what to reply. I sometimes feel the same to you but I usually don't say that  kind of  things  in messages. It's when I'm meeting you in person when I feel like to say that.

Sometimes I feel that just texting those things seems like bit childish, though being playful n childish is also nice.

However how I express my feelings is bit different. it is by sharing my thoughts.

For example, when I saw the plum flower.
Yeah it's cute but not just cute.

I found myself that , I prefer buds compared to full blooded ones because I feel energy to bloom from buds.
Also I assumed rose bud when I saw plum bud. Rose petals are very soft n naive.

I love the poem about rose bud,
"汲む( to sympathize/ consider / scoop) "
by Noriko Ibaraki, saying that:

Even after becoming old,
Like a rose just bloomed with its soft naive petals
It's hard to be open to outside
Every work
Every good work has, inside  it,
Sensitive antenna shivering......

So she says even after becoming adults,
It's good to be sensitive/ naive.
It's actually the source of good works.
That's really encouraging to me.

I like to think those kind of things.
And by sharing those thoughts I show my love.
I might be like a poet. Haha.

Sorry it got so long and late at night.
But I thought it is important to share this with you for our better mutual understanding.
Hope it makes sense to you.
I trust that you will try to understand.

Good night 🌹
