This thing has been bothering me for quite some time.
One of my many missions to accomplish in this trip back is to learn how to open up with my family. This might sound crazy but I’ve never actually shared with my family before, what I want to do and want in life. From my past experiences, my family hasn’t been really happy with my impulsive behavior and “little surprises” I’ve thrown to them. Each time I announced my ‘little project’ to them, it’s like a whole bloody deadly bomb that I’ve just placed in front of them.
The delivery of my every “masterpiece” failed every darn time in the past. To keep me sane, this has got to stop. I totally understand that Asian family has certain values that need to be respected and condoned. I can’t be doing whatever I want to do without having a tiny bit of support and understanding from my very own family. To be politically correct, I need a bloody approval from my family desperately.
So, my task is to present them my master plan. 😛
I know I’m not the most diplomatic person to begin with. I’m emotional and start losing my head when I can’t fork over my thoughts and when people start doubting me. I’m a bloody stubborn species. Once decision is made, I’ll stick to it. Try to change me, you can almost forget about it.
Sounds like an ungrateful monster? Sorry mom, dad, sisters and brother, I’m just the black sheep of the family.
Again, I understand that it’s hard for them to digest my decisions and actions which might seem bizarre to them.
But why to them in fact to everyone, one cannot make ANY difference in SMALL scale.
Why must it be the ‘I believe in making changes in BIG scale. Only THAT can change the WORLD. Only when you are someone prominent, rich and famous, you will have all the attention of the world that worships you as an idol.
I’m not even talking about changing the world now, people.
I’m just trying to play my tiny weenie role, on the things that I’m compassionate about. I just want to share with you the pieces of information I have which led me to these decisions.
I’m not even trying to change the way you think or want to be a smarty pants to preach to you about the whole energy, ecology, equality and economy system. I just want to share with you the consciousness that I have in order for you to see for once the perspective through my eyes.
Why is it always that if you can’t change the system why don’t you just be an obedient little girl and follow the crowd thing?
Why do you need to doubt me by asking, so what have you done so far?
Why do you choose to ignore because you feel that making small differences doesn’t matter at the end?
Why is it always a NO WAY OUT situation? So are you telling me that I’m doing is in vain baby, the world is going to end soon anyway, people are killing each other, oil is running out, trees are dying, global is warming and yada yada…?
SO, does it mean that now that if I’ve failed to convince my family, I can forget about making ANY differences at all OUT there?
Man in the mirror people!
Start from yourself.
To the children of the world, and those not as yet born.
I will try my best to speak up for you!
