What is about Origami Birds that made me write it? As someone who was overly private and sensitive, people never understood the degree of my disturbance. So here’s why I wrote this book. It’s because I may get hurt easily even if you don’t do it intentionally. It’s not your fault that you didn’t realize what I was going through. Being extremely emotional and private don’t always go hand in hand. I may want to tell you how I feel, but I am too shy to express it. And a piece of paper is just as worthy to be a listener as anybody else it, except the fact that there is no judgement that comes my way. By writing what I felt, it became a lot easier to have a clear mind. As everyday became better, I decided to fill my pages and be somebody else’s listener too. And that’s how Origami Birds was born. A collection of emotions that can’t be expressed easily, feelings that didn’t get full justice and people who were finally heard.
