Just make yourself happy

Malaysia is truly becoming a growing develop nation.

With social media and technology going together, everyone can easily express opinions almost on anything.

Social media surely has become a tool for the people to react to the other people openly and freedom of speech has been taken to another level.  Is this true?

Everyone get offended on almost all issues; bullying and shaming seems normal amongst the people around the world.

Your opinions shared around the internet can be offensive to people so sensitive to even small issues.

We must always be very careful and sensitive enough on small things that can create an outrage amongst people.

Wise men will advise us to be unfazed by people’s opinions and the fact that they raise objections.

Have your own stand, don’t U-turn you stand just because people are offended; just change your thinking ways if you are wrong.

Your action or opinion may be right but if people get offended, the best thing to do is question yourself with a very simple question- ‘Am I wrong?’

If your are wrong, just admit it, and you know that you need to change your mind.

You can start ignoring the people, who raise objections, if you feel that you are doing the right thing,

You should be yourself; no matter what you do or say, there’s always someone who will not in the agreeing terms with you.

There are so many people out there connected to each other and there are so many people who have strong opinions about some things.

Difficult to bring pen to paper

In Malaysia, though said that it is difficult to bring pen to paper it is not a thing that’s matter.

Many would just write and say ‘we just don’t have enough time’ as many of our time are on thinking other matters.

Sad to say and maybe the truth is, even newspaper and media just care about writing on politics and issues highlighted are on ‘making other bad and suffer’.  

Many unnecessary issues are stressed for people to read.

Another main issue maybe that the ‘reading materials’ are quite expensive and people don’t have enough money to buy reading materials.

Just look at the cheapest reading material like the newspapers, even the cheapest news media or a weekly tablet may need sponsorship to be placed in the library.

Most likely now, people do read but it’s better through the handheld device on the internet.

During my younger days, I would be in the library in my hometown or the college library for there is where free, cheap and available reading materials can easily be found.

The best way to learn what to read is by reading everything you can get your hands on.

You'll gradually learn what you enjoy reading, and you'll start to make connections between books and connect those books to your own life.

People write to share their feelings, organize thoughts in their mind, educate, inform, entertain or some for relaxation.

I always asked my students, friends and colleagues to write but they will always say ‘they are busy’.
