Refugee notes: who am I?

I always wanted to travel a lot. To visit different countries, learn from other cultures and exploring the world. So dreams come true ladies and gentlemen. I did want it too badly so now I’m here. Abroad, lonely, depressed and frustrated. My life has changed 24 of February 2022 and it won’t be the same never again.
So the only thing I can do is try to get used to it. Time is healing and hopefully I’ll be healing by time. I know for sure that million of people are struggling with the same situation right now. They’re far from home, friendless, exhausted and they don’t have emotional support we all really need. I want to hold every single person and wipe all of their tears because I know how hard this situation is.
I desperately want to help everybody but I can’t help even myself.
That’s why I started to write. Because I believe that you can relieve your pain sharing your story. And I hope it could help me. So here I am. A young woman claiming asylum in Northern Ireland, with the baggage of the past, without any future but hoping for the best. And I extremely need you to be
with me..

  8. While living in Miami, Florida (USA), I met many Cuban refugees that had fled their country in the early 1960’s. They left their land and came to the United States because of the communists that had taken control of their land. Now I find many Cuban refugees arriving in the US but after a year, when they are granted permanent residency, they immediately go back to Cuba to visit friends and relatives. Are they then really relatives? Those that fled communism had no hope of ever returning to visit anyone…
    I wish you the best of luck in your new home. Life moves eternally forwards, the past is not reality, only the present counts.
    All the best and greetings from Spain

    I believe that refugees can actually be perceived by large swaths of the refuge-nation’s society as though they’re somehow disposable and, by extension, their suffering is somehow less worthy of external concern; perhaps something similar to how human smugglers perceive their cargo when choosing that most immoral line of business.
    It is astonishingly atrocious that such a large number of human beings, however precious their souls, can be considered thus treated as though disposable, even to otherwise free, democratic and relatively civilized nations. [One can observe this with the many Canadian indigenous children having been buried in unmarked graves.] When those people take note of this, tragically, they’re vulnerable to begin subconsciously perceiving themselves as beings without value.
    Though perhaps subconsciously, a somewhat similar inhuman(e) devaluation is observable in external attitudes toward the daily civilian lives lost in protractedly devastating war zones and famine-stricken nations; the worth of such life will be measured by its overabundance and/or the protracted conditions under which it suffers and/or even its lack of ‘productivity’. Thus, those people can eventually receive meagre column inches on the back page of the First World’s daily news. …
    In the case of migrants, they are callously accused of becoming permanent burdens on their host/employer nations. I, however, have noticed over decades the exceptionally strong work ethic practiced by migrants, especially in the produce harvesting sector. It’s back-busting work that almost all post-second-generation Westerners won’t tolerate for ourselves.
    Migrants are perceived by less scrupulous employers as though the former are disposable human beings and, by extension, their turmoil is somehow less worthy of concern. Perhaps something similar to how most human smugglers perceive their migrant cargo, the latter’s suffering somehow being less worthy of such immoral entrepreneurs’ concern.
    Often overlooked by their critics is that many migrants flee global-warming-related chronic crop failures in the southern hemisphere widely believed to be related to the northern hemisphere’s chronic fossil-fuel burning, beginning with the Industrial Revolution.

  24. Dear Sofia
    Countries that have an autocratic system, where only a few people are at the top and make decisions, there is also the danger that they lie to their country and people for the sake of power, power and control, to satisfy their ego and mind and to continue to sit on the chair of power. For this reason, they need lies and propaganda to get the backing of their own people. The time will come when these lies will be exposed and the people, who were so easily fooled, will blush and be ashamed. Basically, everything is a battle of good and evil, of truth and falsehood, of right and wrong – Humanity has evolved technically and intellectually (it has partly enabled intellectual wrestling), but spiritually we are as high as we were thousands of years ago. We should realise that we are all one big family sharing one planet – however, we still give too much priority to skin colour, nationality, cultural background and religious beliefs – we should all, first and foremost, see ourselves as human beings and develop humanity instead of fighting each other, competing in comparatives and superlatives. Sant Kirpal Singh (he was a saint who lived in India) emphasised: “Reformers are needed, not of others, but of themselves…” and also Gandhi said: “Be the change you wish to see in the world”. Means, we should start to change or to reform ouselves to become a better person, more human person.
    Violence sows only violence and blood cannot be washed away with blood. Unfortunately, there is still so much hate in the heads of many people. Can a person love who has deep anger and hate in himself? No, surely not – and this is also our problem we see in the world.
    So I wish for you: Learn as much as you can while living abroad and get to know different cultures, this all will help you to widen your horizon of humanity and spiritual wisdom. A good journey on your path and accept even if life teaches sometimes to swallow bitter pills.
    Thanks for sharing, dear friend 🙂

      The sad thing is that all of us fair people, pacifists, humanists and democratic socialists know those sayings by heart and live by them. The people who should listen and learn them tend to ignore those old wisdoms.

      1. Dear friend,
        The problem lies in ourselves. As long as ego and mind controls us we are not really a better person and a better person would not find mistakes in others but in himself/herself or would not compare himself/herself – and this is a big problem the whole world faces. Humilattion cannot start with saying: I am good person and you are not so a good person – as Kabir has put it: He found himself the worst person on earth – so he did not blame others but just himself – this is real humilation. Our pride to be something is another problem – these things come from our own ego, if we are aware of it or not. We even think that we know ourselves, but reality is that we do not know ourselves, for example all the tricks of our own mind, how it convinces us to do and think things according to its motives behind. That is why wise men tell us: “Man know thyself” or in old Greek: “Gnothi seauton”. Another sign why we are under the influence of our ego and mind is: We easily get angry, we change the colour of our mind if it is not pleased and does not get want it wants. So the whole thing is not of political nature – but of spiritual nature which we all have neglected. Politically nothing has changed – man is somehow the same as as he was some thousand years ago. We still fight against each other without knowing the that all is One as the drop of water is one with the Ocean.
        Thank you very much, dear friend 🙂
        All the best

      David, please don’t forget the good Sofia left Crimea weeks before Russia’s special military operation for reasons unknown. Prolly looking for a better future and better job prospects. She’s defacto not a refugee, and as a Crimean she wouldn’t even have the slightest reason to flee. Worst thing happened to Crimea was a feeble attempt by Ukraine to cut off the fresh water supply. But the Russians fixed that quickly. And by now they secured the land route to Crimea in addition to the bridge across the Strait of Karch.

      Also Sofia is not dwelling in Ireland proper but in North Ireland, which is an exclave of the UK on the Irish island. Major distinction being that Ireland is an EU country, while North Ireland isn’t. Now they can’t even send lorries with goods across the economical border anymore.

      “As usual Orca you fight the good fight for Putin”
      Where in my post did you find any evidence of me rooting for Putin or Russia? All I did was setting some facts straight.

      “and The Russians ignoring the facts, Putin invaded a Sovereign Nation”
      Hardly. In fact Ukraine had lost the sovereign status after the CIA operated Maidan massacre. But that wasn’t even a reason for Russia to invade. Many many more provocations were needed to force the Russians to finally engage. The final decision was made after they received news about an impeding attack on Donbass.

      “and his forces have attacked non military targets like hospitals and Residential areas,”
      No, they didn’t. Ukraine faked a lot and projected their own evil deeds onto the Russians. I guess the Russians hit two civil targets: One was a local SBU headquarter, the other a hospital that has been turned into mili6tary barracks some time ago. Americans will never ever understand these things, coz for you war means bombing raids for weeks on end and turning the whole country into rubble. The Russians eye the Ukrainians as brothers and would never never cause civil damage.

      “Mariupol has not been liberated but lost to invaders.”
      Tell that to the local population and prepare for a beating. The people of Mariupol are super duper happy to finally be rid of the Ukros.

      “Arguing your Pro Russian and Pro Putin ideas with me is one thing”
      I am not pro Putin ffs! I mean he is the bestest president any country could wish for but that doesn’t matter in this case. The Russians wouldn’t have reacted any differently with another guy at the helm. Probably even sooner, since Putin has a bit of a softy reputation among his peers. The nationalists and the youth are far more radical than Putin and haven given up on the West long ago while Putin was still trying to do business and negotiate deals with the EU.

      “but a little cruel I think to be telling A Ukrainian how things are in her own Country”
      Not my problem that she is so badly informed. And btw, she didn’t post anything about how things are in her country. Just some vague sob story.

      “and referring to them as Fascists and Nazis.From what I read and see they are all heroes.”
      But but but they are openly Nazis and cowards, using civilians as human shields and killing a lot of people and pushing the blame on Russia.
      Actually I’ve seen evidence of a Ukrainan combat vehicle parked in the narrow space between two civilian houses, where they felt save with all the human shields around them. Of course the Russians destroyed vehicle and crew with surgical precision without leaving more than some scratches on the walls of the neighbouring buildings.

      Let’s face it and cut your patriotic nonsense: The Russians are indeed fighting the good fight and I’m super pissed off that not all of Europe is behind them. Although I guess a majority of the people is but our corrupt politicians are bought by Nuland and her hubby.

      And I dunno what you’re complaining about. Everything goes perfectly for Washington right now: You got another proxy war with Russia, you destroyed the tender relations between Germany and Russia, you are on the best way to de-industrialize Germany, your military-industry complex will receive the not small sum of 100 billion $$$ from Germany, you turn Europe into a poorhouse (client states), and you’ll find lots of applause in the West when you turn your eyes on China.

        Just as a matter of record I’m not American and not affiliated with an amnerican p.o.v. I’m from the UK and in a position to talkt to Ukrainians so I know they'[re not nazis or fascists.. They may have regarded Russians as brothers before but that is rapidly going.

    I feel every word you write. I left Syria in 2012 and ended up a refugee in Canada in 2016. Pouring my thoughts into words is therapeutic. I used to only do it in notebooks, now I am venturing into the virtual world! Wishing you strength and healing.

    I am glad you “liked” my comment on another page because it has given me the chance to discover you! I wish you luck in this crazy world. It sucks what has happened to you and your country. My brother in law is Ukrainian and my family is Croatian, so i understand how nerve racking it is to be from a country that is suffering war. All the best to you Sofia x
