Lazing around the house, just doing my "thing". I was around 7 years old then. I hear a familiar sound "ding ding" I ran out to my garden, waived and rush out to meet my friends. This "ding ding" came from many bicycles around 5 to 6pm as a signal for all of us to gather. We will talk, play games, soccer, catch grasshoppers, catch fish from the lokangs etc.. I was the only guy. It was only during the later years, another guy join the gang.
I always felt comfortable around girls, I talk easier, I felt good sharing heart to heart conversations, I connect better to the female gender. I just wasn't the guy to talk about guy stuff. I even played with my sister's dolls. I had many girlfriends, purely platonic relationship. We would hold hands, even do sleepovers and I know at this point of time I sound like a gay, but trust me, I'm not. I like boobs =) I had many girl / friends, many came as fast as they go. Mostly go due to the change of circumstances. One became a model, end up preferring to hang out with idiots, most got married and children, one borrowed $$ and never return, gotten back-stab and the list goes on and on. I screwed up once tho by sleeping with her. Some just didn't have that connection.
At this point in my life, I looking back, I'm very grateful for every person that came across in my life. I appreciate all the good times we had together. Having said that, I used to avoid the "upper class" as I like being humble and down to earth, but I think I got it wrong.
There are a 4 classes of people.
1) Supplicative value - Literally means to beg, these people feels as tho they have nothing to offer, so they constantly try to acquire value from others.
2) Combative value - They don't feel as valuable as others and choose to try to decrease the value of everyone else instead of increasing one's value.
3) Competitive value - They will only feel valuable if they manage to beat everyone else. Usually in the form of verbal attacks
4) Cooperative value - They gain value by making other people feel happier and more valuable. They are only satisfied when he/she is able to improve the life of others.
In my previous blog post, I mentioned you are the average of 5 people you spend the most time with. I will choose carefully who I spend my time with, and add value to everyone else I meet. I don't ask for anything back. I love bringing value to others, it's just what I'm happy at.
Till my next blog post, take care. I'm grateful you choose to spend the time reading my blog and coming back checking for new post. I hope with every post, I bring value to your life.
