One hand please...
We got this new intern at work today...Well she is not really a fresh graduate as she graduated 7 years back. She is with us for a months training. In the morning when I first met her and introduced my self I felt as if she is related to a person I know.
Later on in the day by the end of work I couldn't hold on to my excitement to know if she is related to that person or no. So I went to her office and asked her are you related to ..........? she replied NO. And then a flow of talks started and she told me she is an orphan adopted by a Kuwaiti father and German mother when she was two years old. She told me that both her parents passed away and she doesn't know anything about her real parents as she always felt that asking about her real parents would hurt her parents who have adopted her. After her parents have passed away none of her family wants her and she is all alone.
I could see so much sadness in her eyes. I know this as a fact that a womens heart is very strong and she often doesn't lets the deepest secrets in her heart out and by telling me all this she must be really feeling lonely to let it all out. I wanted to comfort her but I just didn't have words to say.
This all hit me like a needle and since I left work I feel sad. I just have so many things in my mind but no words to write. I am sensitive and I know it will take me sometime now to get over it.
