The Story Behind From A Distance



As you can see on the upper left corner of my blog are the words From A Distance. For those of you who didn't know, that's actually the title of my blog. Have you ever wondered what it mean? It has been the same title ever since I started blogging in 2012. When I decided to put up a blog, it was supposed to be just for my writings. (I used to write short stories and poems during my spare time.) I couldn't decide on what to call it. I was sitting in front of my laptop when I hear Christina Perri's song Distance playing. That's when I came up with From A Distance. However the meaning behind is much deeper. When I was younger, I was bullied by upperclassmen and even by my peers. People would say things about me without even getting to know me first. I always had to defend myself against these lies. Girls don't fight physically. They use their words. And honestly, it hurts more. A black eye heals but words stick with you forever. I was tired of being labeled this and that. I wanted to use my blog as a tool for people to get to know me. The real me. From A Distance is an expression of who I am, what I like, and what I do.
