The Wall and Us.

DP1

So we’ve been waiting to reach 50 followers before we posted this piece and we just did. We thank you for the appreciation. We hope you believe in us. Even if you don’t we hope some day you do.

Right now there are three people working with The Wall.

Rishabh Prasad.

Aishwarya Sarkar.

And me, Aitijya.

Today’s post would be just about The Wall. I’ve been asked too many times what it is all about. I am not good at explaining things. So I am going to write this down.

*****

“Have you ever felt like you would feel much better if you knew there was someone out there in this world who could understand you?

Maybe you are going through something which is almost inconsequential to someone else. But it matters to you. It’s real. It is happening to you.

Maybe you’ve gone through something, which changed your entire life. It changed your perspective on life. It changed the way you behave.

Maybe when you were young, every night your mother would tuck you in to sleep. Sing a song maybe. Tell you a bed time story.

Maybe you felt an extreme surge of emotion somewhere sometime.

Maybe you tried to explain all of it. Maybe you tried to tell someone about it. Maybe you felt helpless that they could not grasp it. Could not understand it.

You see no one can know how you feel, unless they spend a day in your shoes.

That is what The Wall is all about. It’s to let the world know, that no one is actually alone.

If you’re an alcoholic, there is someone out there who has gone through the same.

If you just lost your mother, someone else went through the same.

If you feel lost and hopeless, someone else feels the same way.

Think about it. We are 7 billion people. And 14 billion stories. Each and every story matters. Each and every life matters.

Why The Wall?

Because we build walls all around us. The world and society has shaped us in such a way that almost always what we see is not how things actually are. All of us live behind these metaphorical walls. I’ve known so many people who are so amazing and beautiful in their own peculiar way that it still astounds me. But, when you look at them, you’ll just not get it. Talk to them, spend time with them, then maybe. This blog is about breaking walls. Once you give away a piece of yourself you’ll see there is someone on the other side. Help them and let them know that they’re not alone.

You see, NO ONE DESERVES TO BE ALONE.

When I was at my worst, if someone came up to me and told me that they’ve gone through the same, it would have made me feel much better. I could have connected to them and their lives.

This is to make sure that we bridge this gap. Break all these walls, free ourselves of the ghosts that haunt us. Maybe a happy memory too.

We have hefty ideas for this blog. This is a community. This is a place where there would be no judgement. This is a place where you could or couldn’t find peace.

This is a place where you are not alone.

Thank you. And have a great day.

  1. A great initiative team! I am sure many will find this useful.

    It certainly helps to share you worries and sorrows with someone else who you know has also been there. You feel so much better when you know someone cares for you.

    Good job. Keep it up.

    Best wishes to you and the team.
    Truly Happy

  3. Hi Aitijya. You have no idea what your blog means to me. I read all your posts simply because I love them. It’s such a great platform to speak out and just say everything that we’ve been keeping inside knowing that there are people who get you. You’re doing a great job! Keep up. X

    1. Hey Amarah. Hope you are doing good.
      I am so so glad you can connect with us.
      YOU have no idea how much your story meant to us and more importantly how much that comment means to me.
      Thank you. Thanks a lot.
      Take care. 🙂

        1. Oh! I apologize I was not aware of it.
          You see Robert, the stories that you read here are actual contributions made by different people. With just about 4 posts written by us. People share their lives with us here so that someone somewhere who is going through the same or has experienced the same can connect.
          So when I read your comment I was confused. I thought you wanted to contribute. My apologies. Take care. 🙂

  4. Congratulations on 50!! That was so quick XD
    Thank you for making this page. I’m sure it has helped lots of people out there. It sure has helped me. Whenever I feel like life is becoming a burden, so to speak, I open your page… And it makes me feel like there is hope. My issues are negligible compared to these people’s. So again, thank you.

  5. Just wow man. That just brought tears to my eyes.
    Thank you so goddamn much. You have no bloody clue how much that meant to me.
    And no it’s not really. That is the entire point. You see, pain comes in various shapes and sizes. I remember telling you this. What’s pain for me might not be the same for you or anyone else. But it’s real and it’s happening to you. It matters. To you. And to anyone else who is going through the same.
    I sincerely hope you get that.
    You’re amazing man. Thank you so much again.
    Take care. 🙂
