unfortunately, i didn’t achieved most of my goals.
my health is out of whack, i’m still waiting for the results of my last 2 papers, some things continue to tie me down, i still have not moved beyond cooking instant noodles and i’m still too tied down with work and studies to do any volunteer work.
fortunately, i thought i was a better person in 2008.
i am more cool headed but still not cool headed enough. i have also come to realise my history gives me almost zero rights to judge people and i have learnt to accept people for who they are but sometimes i wonder am i going down the correct path here because the more absurd a character, the lower the chances of me being judgemental. i am like – go ahead! be morally incorrect! go mad! do stupid things just don’t kill yourself and others! sometimes, i can’t help but love the people who walk on the bizarre side of life but who am i to say i am the normal one?
who am i, this insignificant low life, to judge.
i’ve come to realise and accept with all understanding that i ain’t so great either. i don’t mean it in a “i’ve got zero self esteem left” kind of way so chill.
i think that was the best lesson for me in 2008. we all know judging is not good but to fully grasp the essence of this teaching is a different thing altogether.
i’m glad i did.
