Hating on your own family? not satisfied with your own family? Not having enough freedom? That was what i always have in mind , even up to this day. Not the freedom part , but perhaps not being exactly happy. But i still thank god for this family and everything they gave me. If you think you are really unfortunate to have strict parents who controls everything you do , what about those who don’t even have parents? Those who yearns for parental love so much , that they could give up anything just for someone to care for them. This is how i often remind myself again and again , how blessed i am to have a family who cares for me. Probably just that we think differently and communicate in a different way. Other than that i have no complains haha! Was browsing through youtube when i saw this video “world strictest parents”. And there was this singapore version of it. Tried to find the singapore version quite sometime ago but couldn’t , ahh well they uploaded it already anyway. haha. After watching the video , i could see some change in the kids.
For example , how they slowly tried to fit in to the family , trying to obey the rules as time goes by and even saying they are sorry when they have done wrong. I always believe in chances , like how my friends and families chose not to give up on me , despite my mistakes time and time again. Some of my friends did gave up on me , but i really wish they would give me that last chance to make it up to them for all the mistakes i’ve done to disappoint them. Which is also why , i try to forgive people around me , since i have been given chances before anyway. Why discriminate them ? Why not give them a helping hand , lifting them up from where they fell. Sometimes we get too influenced by what is happening around us , that we tend to overlook those who are suffering in silence. Those people who don’t complain about the hardships they go through , but instead use this hardships as a motivation to push them through in life.
Here’s the video of the “world strictest parents”
By the way , you should check this video out as well , its called Kony 2012. Its spreading quite fast on facebook now. Do spare some of your time to watch it. How other kids in different countries , suffer so much more than us. Living in fear of being killed and kidnapped. fortunately , some heroes from the US have decided to help them and fight for their freedom with the Power of the people and Voice of the people.
