Home, Sweet Home

Home and Inner Child

Starting from the age of 20, most of the time, I have lived abroad. Therefore, the time I spent in Taiwan was not much, and let alone my hometown, Taichung.

After all these years, even though my personality has already been integrated into many westernized thinkings, aesthetics, and behavioral patterns. After all, growing up in Taiwan, spending so many important and critical periods such as childhood and teenagehood here, I still own fresh and genuine memories of my hometown and my childhood. All of the great times are always so profound and they are deeply rooted in my heart.

No matter how much change I have, how far I have gone, and how much I have evolved, my dearest home, Taichung City, can always warm up my innermost feelings. Although not the prettiest, those familiar streets still render me the deepest sense of security.

When I was away from my origin, I got used to building toughness and staying strong for myself all the time. The mask of disguise has overwhelmed my inner personalities, and the inner child, the little girl who only wants to rely on someone else as her wishes, was long gone. However,  every time when I returned home, my childlike innocence came to life again. The little girl has awakened automatically and merged into a part of me. This kind of conversion is a necessity for me --- a moment of precious relaxation that I always cherish and long for.

I love my hometown, treasure my growth, and favor this little girl who needs the familiar air sometimes. They all shaped a better version of myself.
What about your inner child? They may also be eager to find their roots and naively come out and play around!


| 內在小女孩

20歲留學開始,在台灣居住的時間並不多,回台中的時間也相對更少了。

這麼多年下來,即便我的人格早已融入許多西化的思想、審美、行為模式,但畢竟在台灣成長,度過童年、青少年等重要關鍵期,所以對家鄉的記憶、小時候的所有記憶,永遠是這麼的深刻、這麼深印在心底。

不論我有了多大的改變、走了多遠、進化了多少,家 台中市,總是能溫暖我心的最深層。熟悉的大街小巷,它們不是最美,卻給我最深的安全感。

在國外總要戴上堅強的面具,戴著戴著,也就習慣成自然。而那個只想依賴、時而任性的內在小女孩,早就不知躲到哪去!但每次一回家,小時候的感覺又回來了,小女孩自動跑出來,跟長大的自己融合。這樣的轉換,是種必要的放鬆。我珍惜這樣的幸褔感!

我愛藴育我的家鄉、愛我的成長過程、愛這個需要出來透氣的小女孩。你們的內在小孩呢?他們也許也渴望著回家一趟,天真地出來透氣玩耍!
