On top of my hearing impairment condition, I always make it a point to mingle more and try to understand people from their point of view. Especially from the best smart ones. Although I admit that my critical thinking ability may not be very good. Okay, perhaps it means I need to read up more?
It is another separate issue if people are not willing to share.
At my current age, I already learnt not to pre-judge people first. These days, I understand things by listening and observing, and then try to understand why things are done in a certain pattern.
Until today, I am still trying to understand what is my unique standing position in Singapore and this world. Why am I born in Singapore? Why am I in this current state? Why do I exist? What is my purpose? Is there something I can help to change in this world? How do I go about doing it?
I somehow think that purpose is getting more clearer and clearer to me.
The challenging part is often about how one can look beyond surrounding naysayers say and follow what he or she wants to do wholeheartedly.
I think sharing perspectives can help to broaden my mind further.
I like talking to people, to understand their thoughts on an issue.
Hmm..maybe it is time to come up with my own version of MediaCorp Channel 5 “Let’s Think About It” conversation with some friends over coffee?
