Tonight is the night before, in my country, Pakistan, elections take place.
And here is where the infamous Imran Khan comes into play.
For quite a while, I wondered "Hmmm, where can I talk about this without being thoroughly destroyed by my peers?"
And then it hit me...
So I might ramble on for a bit, and if none of you want to read it, that's ok. I mean, I wouldn't be that nice of a person if I force an opinion on someone, no? That being said, this is only that; an opinion.
But I welcome any and all of you to read simply for the sake of knowing what I'm thinking about.
Now, let me explain the situation in Pakistan at the moment, atleast the way I understand it
It's not all that great, but over the years we've gotten used to it as a population.
We have regular power shortages, and, for the better part of the day (12-14 hours) the electricity goes (although, Alhamdolilah, we're well enough off to afford a UPS, but a vast majority aren't).
There are also gas and water shortages sometimes.
Now, there are two main political parties that I have been torn between;
-> PML-N, headed by Nawaz Sharif, no actual amazing change has been made, and there's no actual guarantee that the state of the country will get better, but the country would remain stable. I believe there might be an increase in the state of living, albiet slowly.
-> PTI, headed by the aforementioned Imran Khan, alot of his reforms, to me, seem a little too good to be true. They're good, but they feel a little unrealistic, and there is ALOT of talk about him. Like, a storm of sudden supporters.
Now, the only reason why I'm scared of voting for Imran Khan is literally because of his supporters, but that might be my own personal issue. They are so unbelievably opinionated, it makes me not want to support Imran Khan.
If I say something, ANYTHING, I'll feel like a nail getting hammered down.
But this calls into question my views on the people then.
My personal belief is that a leader doesn't form my opinion of a country, it's people do.
When I think of America, I don't think of Barrack Obama. I think of it's people.
Same goes for my own Nation.
And slowly, over the past year, I've been losing faith in humanity as a whole.
I've met people who are mean.
People who cast me away.
People who ignore me.
People who forsake me.
People who cast away, ignore and forsake others.
People who make this world (or atleast my world) a little less happy.
And it makes me sad.
And seeing people like this voting for someone I'm voting for scares me.
It makes me question who I am.
I don't think I'm like that. I try my best to keep my opinions to myself. After all, the only power I have is to vote. The rest isn't my right. So I am just very terrified. :\
Not to say that there aren't nice people in the world.
This is where DeviantArt comes in
I've met alot of people over here.
Alot of nice people.
Alot of wonderful people.
Alot of people who support me.
Alot of people who don't hate me.
Alot of people who might actually want to call me their friend.
It really really makes me feel... just wonderful!
More importantly, It kindof restores my faith in humanity.
Maybe I'll meet more people like you all!
God-Willing, I really hope so
Once again, thank you all for reading (if you did)
I'm really sorry for rambling on and on (like, really really sorry...)
When I have no where else to turn to... DEVIANTART! xD
But thank you. To those of you who read it.
I hope you enjoyed it!
