Why Am I Here?

Why am I here?

I guess that is the question that most of us, if not all, are asking. Why am I here in the world? Why am I here in this place? Why am I in this situation? Why? And that is also probably one of the most difficult questions to answer.

Well, why am I here? I am not an expert in blogging. I am actually fairly new in the blogging universe. I am not an expert in writing as well. I do not consider myself a writer. I have also not yet found my “niche”. I do not know what my brand will be. I do not even know if I would get some views, more so, likes and comments.

So why am I really here?

I guess the list below are some of the reasons as to why I am here, in this new world, blogging.

  1. I have always wanted to start a blog ages ago. I just haven’t found the courage to do so. The courage to let other people read my writing. As what I have previously mentioned, I do not consider myself a writer.
  2. I want to have an avenue to express my thoughts and emotions. I am a jolly and bubbly person. Most of the time, I consider myself an extrovert. I love being with people. I love sharing stories with them. I love talking. But there are just some things that I find very difficult to share, things that I badly want the world to know or feelings that I really want to express.
  3. I want to be able to inspire others. At such a young age, I have been through A LOT. I have often wondered if I was just born unlucky or if I did something terrible during my childhood deserving of all the bad things happening in my life. I got depressed so bad that at one point, I did try to take my own life (and I thank God that it didn’t work out the way I wanted it to be). BUT, I am still here. I am now happier. I was able to battle through all those downs. I am a better person now and I want to be able to share to others how I was able to bring myself up from the ground.
  4. I want to share my travel experiences. I LOVE travelling. If I had the money, I would have traveled the whole world already. Well, who wouldn’t, right? I love the feeling of being in unfamiliar places. I get excited with the thought of meeting new people. I am amazed of how people in different places have different cultures. And I want to be able to share that happiness and excitement with others.

So there. Those are basically the main reasons on why I am here. Of course, I will be adding some more topics to that list along the way. Who knows? I might get good at blogging. There might come a time that I won’t only get likes or comments, but FOLLOWERS as well.
