How often does one hears critical accusation from parents? It can be any kind of critical accusations. Some parents tend to believe that they have sacrificed so much for their kids, so the kids have to dedicate themselves to giving back to them.
Growing up under this pressure, one has learned to act in accordance with parents’ demands, not because he/she wants to be helpful genuinely, but out of a sense of guilt and duty. As a result, this had developed a state of mental indebtedness that prevents the kid from following his/her inner thoughts.

Thoughts and emotions may overwhelm me sometimes.
When I get overwhelmed by my thoughts and feelings, I will appear in Twitter and tweet more than usual or even talk it out to my boyfriend because he is someone who is similar to me and someone I trust. I will share all that’s on my mind in order to let it all out.
It’s only after letting it out in the open, I can slowly begin to make sense of it all and relax.
I will treasure some alone time because I am so immersed in the emotional world of other…
Life is full of lessons and life goes by faster than we thought.
Hoping to live longer so that I can learn more life experiences, from myself and from other people.
Here are some valuable experiences that took me a while (after entering 30) to comprehend fully:
Things will hold you down, but knowledge will grant you the freedom.
In the past, I do not really have the chance to spend time on online courses to upgrade myself.
Now, I am able to spend some time on online courses and reading of articles to expand my overall knowledge and after…
When a friend hurts you/me/him/her in any way, the immediate reaction can be in astonishment, in denial mode, lack of faith, and then comes the strong feeling of annoyance. When the betrayal occurs, the immediate reaction can be to break the friendship with the other party.
After what had happened, taking a step back is essential. Here is my definition of “Taking a step back”:
Cooling off period:
Cooling off period may be for a few minutes, a few hours, a few days, a few weeks or even longer. Take this time to give yourself a period of time to take…
It’s nearing your 5th death anniversary, Dad.
I do not wish to describe what had happened 5 years ago because I do not think that I am actually facing it bravely. If I were to describe it, I may cry until my eyes turn puffy the next day.
I will cry whenever I see photos of my dad.
I will cry whenever I listen to songs that are related to “Family” or “Dad”.
I will cry whenever I am thinking of my dad.
I will cry whenever I think of the day I received his death news.
Death is something…
Even though the moments I’ve been through lately are not thunderbolt moments in life, but what struck me the most this morning during wee hours is considered as my “thunderbolt moment”.
Someone told me before, “Independence is good. But too much is like biting off more than I can chew. And you will hurt yourself and hurting people around me indirectly.”. This sentence hit the nail on my head. I am hurting my family and my boyfriend indirectly.
I focused on my work too much and I admit that I am a machine — not sure to be proud of…
In times like this, I guess penning some thoughts over here would be better for me. I do feel easier for me to express my thoughts and feelings through writing as opposed to speaking.
Having a colleague who becomes a friend after, and then becomes a lover, is truly a blessing to me. When my work gets too overwhelming, this person is there to keep me sane and cheer me up using his own ways. I have found this person eventually.
Here’s for my love.
I feel really great to have someone I could trust who is willing to walk…
