Like a teething problem, when a little kid grow her teeth, I started out like a fish out of water. I didn’t feel any sense of belonging to anyone or any place in particular. I only lived, or existed to be exact, through my entire first five years not remembering…

“So I was a very soft person. I would easily upset and cry. And I hate to be soft. In fact, I was not soft. I was empathetic.”

Empathetic: showing an ability to understand and share the feelings of another

Soft means I am easily upset by myself. For instance, when I cannot get 100% mark on a maths test, I am upset. It is all about me. No one is in this with me.

Empathetic means I…

It is easy to say but hard to follow. It needs tact.

How can we presumed someone innocent until proven guilty. Well, we just assume that when no evident is presented, one remains innocent. What about the one used to do thing that is under consideration? That history does not define a person, particularly the unfavourable deed. This continuity does not translate into current doing. When we hear that argument of “used to do that”, we need to be conscious that a fallacy is committed.

Because we are not there, we do not know the truth, yet the truth is not important until the truth is shown by evident. The important thing is to retain the innocence for one on our side, because other side has the supporter already.

When things happen, we yarn for support. That is what we can give, when the truth cannot be verified.

It is very difficult to know the truth about a situtation that happened far away from me. I was not there with you but I tried to find out about the hitting situation from people around you. …

It is not easy to finally understand why people did not like me as much as I loved them. I loved people, and always wanted to be with them. Why? Because my family was small and my parents did not play with me. …

“You are who you are but who are you?”

I got into the most famous primary school in the city. Fordfield Primary school was the school for children of elites- the richest, most powerful group in the country. How did I go there? Well, Richard, my father had a boss…

As I grow older, I start to value the routines that my parents Richard and Helen created when I was a kid.

Helen would keep me clean and bath me every morning, afternoon and night, so I have always had a good two or three baths during the day to…

So today is a day to express love to the one I keep near and dear to my heart. I have a special someone I want to write to.

Wishing a wonderful year full of love to my favorite little Valentine!
