A Delicate Soul


"His heart was like a sensitive plant, that opens for a moment in the sunshine, but curls up and shrinks into itself at the slightest touch of the finger, or the lightest breath of wind."
                                                   
                                                    -Anne Bronte

  1. Anne Bronte defined me a long time ago, before I was even born.

  2. Whose soul was that that Anne Bronte described?

    Do you like men with sensitive souls?

    I don't like it here where I live, because this is a place with great American influence. And so if a man here is sensitive in nature, he is not going to be likable. Filipinos have grown to love the American way of loving people who are expressive and not silent.
    But if a person here is not so expressive and silent and very formal, he is often disliked. And in schools, such a boy is being bullied.

    I think in Britain it isn't like that? Am I right in believing that in Britain, men and boys who are silent and very formal are appreciated instead of scorned and bullied?

    I like the culture in Britain infinite times more than the culture in America.
