Dreams are dying (Reflection)

in Project HOPE2 years ago

Having a dream is basically visualizing our future goals, a dream makes you focus, plan and work to obtain what you aspire to; You develop the ability to dream from childhood, while you are a teenager and when you are young, you begin to identify opportunities that can help you achieve that dream you seek.



There are people who dream of a profession, having financial independence, a family, being able to feed it, have a good house, a car, satisfy their needs and live comfortably if that were possible.

Dreams in Venezuela.

Venezuela was the country of opportunities, for us it was very easy, to dream, plan and work to fulfill our dreams, when we were children we dreamed of a profession, making our lives and obtaining goods, even those who could not study dreamed of obtaining a job as a worker in the state oil company or one of its contractors, the basic state companies or any of those companies that abounded in our country.

Today the reality is different, our young people are losing the ability to dream, or rather, they realize that their suitcase of dreams has no future here, that there are no opportunities for growth, to have a house, much less a car. They realize that it is very difficult to get the most basic things to eat, they know that so that time does not surprise them they must leave soon, if they do not want to see their dreams die.

Dreams linked to me.

I am fortunate to have one of the few families that the crisis has not fractured in this country, we have avoided emigrating, partly thanks to this platform, however, my children grow up and wake up to the reality that they live in a country that does not allows them to dream.


My eldest daughter is turning 18 and dreams of being a forensic doctor, although she enrolled to study medicine, she has not been able to start her career and is already feeling the temptation to leave the country, this makes me feel powerless, faced with the dilemma that she he has to become independent, make his own life and achieve his dreams, dreams that can die in our country.

Venezuelans today are scattered around the world and they are opening the doors of opportunities for those who stayed, every Venezuelan abroad has become an opportunity for their relatives here, a brother of my wife offers my daughter the opportunity to receive it in Brazil so that you have the opportunity to realize your dreams.

In conclusion Can a whole generation of young people lose the ability to dream?...

Every day there are young people who leave the country in search of opportunities, risking their lives, crossing borders illegally, on dirt roads, through the Amazon jungle, crossing rivers and mountains to not let their dreams die.

What harm did they do to my country and its people!

Greetings dear friend, it is nice for me to greet you and see that you are well.

Brother your article reflects a very hard reality for our young people, sometimes some people tend to criticize those who leave our country, but a young professional friend of physical education and sport, years ago he said textually "teacher you are a person who already has his home well structured, but I am young who begins to undertake a journey and I see truncated my dreams of acquiring a house and especially furnish it, so I go in search of my dreams" those words resonated with me and let me know that each person has a different reality.

In your case, I hope that God will enlighten you and that you will be able to make the right decision for the well-being of your family. See you later my friend, have a great week!

I can understand the situation of your country and after that crisis the situation is became worse. Also now this covid-19 is like sprinkling salt on the burn. Don't stop dreaming because it will give you strength. thanks for this awesome post.

Sad situation really and it is pretty much the same in Nigeria. Nobody has any sort of hope because things seem to be getting worse

Hi dear friend @fucho80
The crime that these people have committed is very serious, one day they will have to give account to the creator, all of us who are still here dream of them leaving and beginning the recovery, as for the young sadly there is no other one, they have to go, I I did not leave the country because of the pandemic but as soon as it is over I am leaving.

God bless you

Since it is a dream, nobody is deprived of the opportunity to dream, the bad thing is that at the moment dreams are difficult to realize here in Venezuela from the professional, economic, quality of life, etc. point of view. However, we should never stop fighting to achieve our goals and that our dreams stop being dreams and become reality.

Is important not to faint, when a door closes it is because two or three more will open for us. Greetings and thank you for sharing your experiences.

Hello dear friend @fucho80, the truth is unfortunate that this happens in our country, a country that was the dream of many and that offered many opportunities. But today things are not like that anymore and we have to go out and look for a better quality of life. I know that it can be difficult to see that a son is on your side and that he cannot fulfill his dreams in his country but it is the best thing he can do, in my opinion we must take advantage of the opportunities that are given to us. It is not easy but great things can be achieved outside our country, within it helping our own.

Greetings friend @fucho80

It must be very complex to be in your situation, I say it in this way because as a father of a 10 year old girl, I would not want her dreams of being a professional in Veterinary, to be truncated but to place the balance between her desires to emigrate from the country, must be a very difficult situation.

Greetings my friend @fucho80,

As a parent I put myself in your shoes, no doubt it is a dilemma that leads us to frustration and forces us to think about the opportunities that our young people have today in our country.

In the first instance we can advise them to stay, but it would be forcing them to run the "rat race" that many of us are living today, by this I mean that our daily earnings are only enough to half supply the food without aspirations beyond this.

On the other hand, to support them in their idea of migration without knowing what they can find outside and without being close to us to help them, in any case is a moral dilemma that causes us uncertainty.

Thank you for sharing your concerns that like many Venezuelans we have.

greetings my friend @fucho80. Very true the reality that you show in relation to the situation in which we live in our country. Particularly I have a child who is still small, studying just his first years of studies and those thoughts sometimes come to my mind of how will be their future here in Venezuela or if we should as parents educate them to develop later in another country that will present better opportunities. But in spite of everything I am one of those who think that dreams cannot die and even less in children and teenagers that with their perseverance, love and passion can achieve everything they propose in life. Certainly opportunities should not be missed and we must always be alert to take advantage of them but nevertheless we must instill in them that the dream of seeing our country free is possible because for God there are no impossible! greetings

No doubt it is a difficult situation my friend @fucho80. Faced with this reality that we Venezuelans live, our young people do not see a future here, I would say that dreams should not die, some will only be on pause others will have to realize them elsewhere, but dreams must remain alive while we have life to make them come true.

It is said that after the storm comes the calm, our country is in a storm that does not let us see a future and from a current point of view dreams seem to be dying but it is not so because Venezuela is one of the countries where the culture of currencies managed to flourish and many ventures are seeing the light as the creators of "orinoco.io", just to cite one case, I think we should focus more on thinking globally and acting locally , so we can generate income in a more stable currency and develop a venture from our country.
