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。


Talked with an important friend, met in Delhi.

She has been always supported and encouraged me.
It's so happy to have such friend.

These 1week I was feeling down (again?)
Last week I and the mother had a conversation. How much I'll take part in the child raising?
I was feeling that I'm bit overwhelmed and don't have enough space to think / decide the commitment.
It was nice that I could share that but I couldn't feel the EMPATHY from her.
That feeling of loneliness have happened before too. Maybe our communication style is different. Sometimes she might have showed empathy but I missed to RECEIVE it ?
What is to set the boundary?


Another day I was given an opportunity to introduce my life so far to the sharemates.
After my talk the facilitator asked everyone what they felt.
My friend told me that we've been knowing more than 10 yrs and talked time to time but she had many things that she doesn't know about me. She had been thinking that I'm kind of a person who can do everything (!?) But today she got to know that I'm kind of person who takes time to verbalize..
It was nice that the mutual understanding developed. :)
Other share mate said "you like to have problems, seems so tough". Hmmmm lol - -;  that's true but I can't stop... Also that made me what I am now so...

Well, other share mate said that " getting accustomed" seems like my theme??
Maybe because I was focusing on conveying the message that I need time, I'm slow to getting accustomed...
Hmm in share house it's not just like getting accustomed. Everyone is part of the environment. In a jazz session every new person is also adding new sound ♪
That's true. I can make difference. I can make influence.

Life goes on...God please keep guiding me....
