“Stupidity is better kept a secret than displayed”

The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits.

Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!

Stupidity is the deliberate cultivation of ignorance

and my favourite:-

The wise understand by themselves; fools follow the reports of others

[Blogging under the influence of Willow Smith]

I have had a few conversations with a few of my close friends.
[ different time and venues that is ]
and I have gathered opinions on some  matters that have been bugging me like hell.

1st is stupidity.

You see , there are a few people in my life who can't seem to wise up and shut up.
They tend to blabber on and on about things that are petty and not important.
They will end up looking stupid.
When one speaks to much , their stupidity reveals quite a sum!
So I guess , you really have to choose your words
 and also
you definitely have to think before you speak.

2nd is EGO.
Men are more egoistic than women?
Hmmmm hahahahahah!
No la, to me both genders weigh equally on this.
Many women are working now.
Some are given good posts and some are even bosses.
You might be the boss at your office, but at home you are a wife and a mother.
Do not get carried away.
It will ruin your marriage. Seriously.
Ego gets you nowhere.
You will just end up being bitter and angry for no reason.
Why waste the energy on something that is not fruitful?

3rd is repressed desire for glamour and fame.

Some of those who are 'attached' to a social network are actually turning the arena into a SCHOOL PLAYGROUND.
Most of those who were a nobody , tend to show off in social networks.
They love to critisize others.
Outdo one another.
Just like schooldays.
As one of my friend told me :-
" They could not rule the school , so now they want to take a stand in the social network"
I could not careless if they just mind their own business.
But some of them actually went overboard by ditching me in real life!

What the?

4th is Family Values

Hmmm, this is a very sensitive issue.
Different families have different family culture and values.
I have the opportunity to observe a few weird ones.
Like , parents and kids swearing in public.
All I can say is that , we must learn from others' mistakes.


You see. I was dignosed as a depressed woman two years ago.
Many made fun of my weakness.
Many ran away, scared that they might get this disease from me.
Yada yada yada.
But then, I suddenly realise that,
those people who mocked me are now depressed too!
BUT , I think they do not want to admit that they are.
Or they are in self denial.
Please seek help from the professionals.
Spriritually and Mentally.
No point in denying the fact that you are sad.
It is not a bad thing.
It is a very competitive world out there.
Our lifestyle differs from our parents.
And our kids' lifestyle will differ from ours.

Okie..I can go on and on about many of the things that I have discussed.
Maybe I will continue in the entries to come.

Have a great day ahead!

Hi jak-jak.

Well in a way yes and no.
You see, we are mould according to our parents' believes and practises.
But we do absorb our own principles as we grow. Some we learn from friends and some from people around us [ thru observations and such]
I would say it depends on how influencial your parents are. How involved are they in you life.
I am some how 30% my dad, 30%my mmom , 35 % myself and 5 % my hubby.

Have a great day ahead ya! and thank you for asking...atleast i know there are people out there who are reading my entries!
