Sometimes dreams need to stay as dreams, because a dream is your hidden motivation that you need to keep it, protect it and make it bigger. While getting what you really want so fast, can kill your motivation too early.
It is the relation between desire and time. Only time can prove your real need, if enough time passed and you still have that desire for something which you’re not getting the chance to have, then it may turn from a simultaneous desire to a dream. People’s dreams are either under the category of a solution or what they think is the solution, in other words we think about a dream as it is the key for happiness door. But when we mistranslated destiny’s signs, here we may start sacrificing long-term goals for short-term desires which will push us far from our dream.
In order to see if this is what you have born to do, keep writing down your ideas and what you are passionate about and be honest with your paper. It is so nice when you read those notes after a year or two and you find that you achieved some of them and even you sat new goals that you’re on your way to achieve them. Some people blame their destiny for not being surrounded by supporters during the journey, here you need to know that entertaining cities grow faster, which means you need to find who shares you the same passion in life because an idea is like a plant that will never grow until it finds its convenient environment to grow in.
When do you know that you have to change your dream?
When it starts to bring to your heart the beats of fear instead of the beats of happiness. For example, when your dream is just the pure perfection which is an exhausting thing that you’ll never reach, but you still can try to be close to it without being obsessed about it because humans were created perfectly imperfect and that what makes each one of us unique by what he has.


After 2006 many families were forced to leave their homes, then the ISIS cries started in 2014 which resulted in many families to be forced to leave their own houses and almost all what they have.


A big number of people were killed, mostly from the minority groups, till now more than 1000 Ezidi women were killed and raped.

Despite of that, many people were able to reach safe places in Kurdistan Region or in the south of Iraq. The displaced people now are living in schools, mosques, churches, camps and other places. Even that many organizations tried to help the IDPs living in the camps, but what is provided is just not enough and people are suffering lack of drinking water, food, clothes, healthcare and education.The current situation in the camps is unhealthy at all which is making children and the disabled people the biggest victims of such situation. People with high blood pressure, diabetes, Asthma, Osteoporosis and other dangerous diseases are not getting any kind of medication in the camps, while some of them are in need for emergent surgeries.

20141109_123609[1]The IDPs in Iraq have a lot of fears for the future, some of them are thinking of finding a way to leave the country, some are thinking of staying at their new places and the others are hopping to go back to their houses soon even though they are really afraid that this dream will not be possible in near future.

Those children between age 4 and 9 are living in the camp and they miss their schools and their old life, saying ” We left everything behind us and we went to different places till we reached this place. it is safe here but still we hope to go home one day”

Are we suffering from a shock?

             Are our people suffering from a shock? So first what is the shock? And which type of shock or shocks is this? If we think a little and just try to specify the problems first then we can start solving them , as we know that specifying the issues is half of the solution!…

Most of us know some of the personal and social shocks types and maybe we already have been through some of them by ourselves, heard about it by our relatives or it was a whole socially issue … but from one of my readings I found that there are many types of shocks that the Iraqi person may have lived or still living with till now!

Some of these types are:

1. Accidents.

2. Hurting people on purpose.

3. Poverty.

4. Homelessness and migration.

5. Human made crises: like chemical pollution and destroyed buildings.

6. Dictators and occupations.

7. Genocide and wars.

8. Natural crises like earthquakes and floods.

9. Ignoring the needs of disabled people.

10. Dangerous diseases.

11. Accidental missing of beloved ones, places, owns identity, home or territory.

12. Accidental changes in lows, familiar things and revolutions.

13. Failed medical surgeries.

14. Torture.

15. Watching of death or injury.

There are a lot of reasons for shocks and the reactions are widely different, because it depends on traditions and cultures.

In addition to that there are also the fake crises that were used to suppress peoples’ voices and to limit their energies like fuel crises, sugar, paper, electricity, traffic jams and many others.

Those crises, the fake ones and the real ones, all helped to lower the people immunity, taking his will away and leaving him weak in front of any new virus that can attack the society.



shock chart
As I imagined: the first peak is the shock itself, the second peak is fear and the last peak is thinking about revenge. The small peaks are: changes, loneliness, questioning, shame, feeling disabled, cautiousness.
