Struggling

As much as I look calm outside, I have been struggling lately, be it my private life or working life. I have difficult past relationship that I been working hard to move on (which I finally did) and right now at this moment I am trying to manage my new relationships.

However, it is not easy. Work wise, I have to learn the art of being a versatile conversationalist with a pinch of humor and intelligence needed in order to capture the attention of the clients.

Personal life wise, a lot do not actually understand me. If i am comfortable with the person, trust me, i have plenty to talk.  If i don’t, don’t expect much words from me or even a single word. People skill has always been an issue with me. I seriously hate being pushed away or the other party showed absolute no interest in keeping in contact with me nor trying to spend time with me. (been there, done that, for one damn year, I was being pushed away and ignored or he actually never sent me any fucking text to initiate conversation with me). And.. one day… the old and weary me, just gave up on the whole relationship because for one, i hate being push away and for two, i am so done whenever people show absolute no interest in being with me.

The one year of hell that i went through was a good training ground. i learn that i will only be with those who is eager to be with me. I will never ever beg for attention because i learn it the hard way, never chase love, affection or attention. If it isn’t given freely by another person, it isn’t worth having. And once i given up on the person or i am done, i am really done and have absolutely no interest to spend time nor even feel like talking to them anymore.

To me, grey area is a tough call, because i have always been either a white or black decision person. and yes, this is to simplified my life instead of arguing white or black. i hope to resolve this struggling moment soon..

 

 

Little Beggars on Jalan Ampang

I was on my way to visit client at Jalan Ampang the other day and I stoped at the traffic light as it turns red.

As I was waiting in my car, I heard a tap on my car window and I saw this young kid ( about 6 years old). He was looking at me and gesturing to me with his index finger (that’s one I guess) and he ask me to give him $1 as donation. I shake my head and told him in malay that I won’t give him any money. He seemed upset and he smack my car with his palm before walking away.

I saw a lot of drivers did give the boy and his another partner (in crime,.about 7-8 years old) $1 as they approached every single cars that stop by the junction or traffic lights.

It was a very disturbing and sad scene to me as I shake my head in disbelief. Both of them are of school age and should be in school or enjoying outdoor activities. Why the heck are they begging on the street instead?

A lot of questions pop into my mind as I felt really sad and surprised. Has Malaysia gone so bad? Where are their parents or their guardians?  Why aren’t these boys in school?  The boys do not know the shame of begging or taught to have no self dignity as long as they have the money? For how long have they been begging? Why does the drivers pay them $1 and to me it’s encouraging the boys to beg further!

I am still loss of words and I felt helpless and no idea what to do or how to respond 😓IMG-20170602-WA0001
