Why do people love stormy weather ?

 

Why ? What attracts them to it ? What makes storm so special ?


Often , we hear people proclaiming that they love rain or thunders or the view of lightenings that furrow the sky. But why ? Doesn't the storm scare people ? Don't they all freak out when the loud sounds and flashes that precede the actual storm pop up ?
The reason they love it is because the storm is probably the only thing that understands them. What characterizes storm is not fear , but chaos, mislead , confusion. All these make people love storm. They love it because it reflects what's inside them, inside their minds. They love it because they're sad. They love it because confusion is what they feel, they love it because their mind is a mess , filled with chaos provoked by thoughts chasing inside. Thoughts run wildly , not knowing their own purpose. It's just like the storm. Grey clouds gathering , running in circles , bumping into each other and tumbling.  But the silence right before the storm, oh the silence! When everything settles down, not a sound being heard, nor the wind blowing , just like all has stopped existing, like there's nothing around. That peace that comes in. That's what makes people love storm and appreciate it even more.
The storm is appreciated not only for it's similarity to what people feel , but also for it's ability to calm everything. That's what most of them want : to learn how to calm those wild running thoughts, how to control them and how to stop the raging power that they are yet to come across with.
