I didn't remember in my childhood if I have been so obsessed about listening to stories whether from my mom or dad. however, I did listen to them a lot both from my parents and my grandmother, but the stories that I listen to them from my grandmother still haven't faded away yet from my memories, as I still remember how she had been told us these stories. For instance, the style she used, the tones of her voice when sometimes went up and other times low, the sudden appearance of her forehead’s wrinkles when there were moments of disappointment she wanted to show us how badly those situations were.
My grandmother never told us unreal stories, all she said was real, as I am writing now, but although there were horror stories” I used to describe them that way”, and I was really frightening while she was telling the stories, yet I found myself on those stories.
I always love listening to my grandmother’s stories. Honestly, she lived a totally depressive life, and her parents were separated early after her and her brother got born. One day, she and her little brother had been kidnapped by someone, while their mother was off home, but lately they discovered that the one who kidnapped them was their father, he took them to live with his new wife, and his wife, on the other hand, was the worst and wicked women, my grandmother, ever knew, now you know how kind of life of this person could be.
All the adventures she told us about were 100% real, but she always won in the end. Sometimes she would tell us about her adventures in Chad where she was looking for her only little brother, and the most dramatic situations she got herself into. Other times she would tell us about her adventures with her stepmother and how she often escapes from her traps.
Stories are the stories, whether if they are our mind products or from reality, they still have a taste of being interesting, and entertaining, although sometimes make us terrified, frightened from what could be possible to happen. But we still love listening to them; perhaps reading them also gives us another way of entertaining ourselves.
No matter what, stories can teach us a lot, and if we could see it from the past until now, we could probably found out that the stories make 70% of our current life or maybe could form our personalities, not the experiences, or dangers on them are do that, but the wisdom that someone could find while reading or listening to them.
I can't deny the power of the wisdom on our lives, and why we need it to continue living through the hardship that may or may not happen in the stories.
