Everyone is different. Do you ever sit and think about how someone, a stranger, got to be in the same place as you? I am currently sat within a waiting room, where I have been situated for almost an hour. Surrounded by different family’s, all with different stories.
The variety of people walking though the doors, all here for different reasons. Wether they are a professional coming for a meeting, teenagers waiting for appointments or parents waiting for their children to come out. All brought together in this one small room.
I’ve seen broken family’s, talking about who has their child when, brought together for their appointments. I’ve seen different professionals come in to have tour’s and meetings. All different reasons for being here.
Everyone has different story’s that make up who they are. Different reasons to be in that place. If you think about it, even that mark on that bench, has a story behind it and I find that fascinating. How a couple could be having a picnic in the park, eternalising their love by engraving it into a tree, being the story behind those initials in the park. Everything has meaning and has been left there for a reason.
Everyone is who they are because of incidents that happen, everyone has their own story as to why they are who they are. That quiet girl in class, may be quiet because of bulling in the past. That mean girl at college may be mean, as she’s been hurt before and is scared of letting others in. Everyone is different, and everyone has their own story to tell.
If you sit and keep a look out, you may just witness these beautiful stories behind every person. Their likes, their dislikes, their little quirks. Next time your out, instead of looking at your phone screen, keep your head up and look at the people around you. Become fascinated by their stories, and how much you can pick up just by paying attention. The world is a beautiful place, you just have to keep an eye out to see the beauty.
