I’m currently blogging using my new desktop.
This is the first time I ever got something above 1k myself.
And I carried it home myself? Am I power or what?
Goes to show that I’ve grown up already? 🙂
Guess it’s a tiring night for me.
A little headache after getting all the things setup. Not completely done yet.
In the eyes of many I may seem to be 我行我素 because I don’t give a damm to what the people around me feel. I do things just because I like it. I need no reasons or explanations to anybody, not even to my parents. I’ve learned to make decisions for myself at a young age; from choosing the friends I want to the schools and subjects I wana take up. Nobody can stop me even if they try to. My parents don’t do this and I don’t understand why other people should. When they do, I’d just rolled my eyes at them and move on to what I think I should be doing. I think that’s why people call me the stubborn headed one? I don’t change my opinions just because you don’t like it. But I don’t know why; somehow this is affecting the people around me and I guess I have to make a change to it.
Every time I have a quarrel with Prawn about our clashing opinions, it makes me feel sad.
Not because I’m angry at him., (Maybe a little) but more importantly I always realise I’m too opinionated sometimes and why can’t I just control myself?
If only I had listen to him, take a deep breath and keep my tone a little down, things could have been easier. I knew I have to do this but I find myself getting defensive over my own viewpoints that I just can’t take in any words or advice.
I’m not proud to admit that I’ve a foul temper and anything can make or break my temper.
This explains why I practically snap at anyone who choose to step into my ring of fire. I don’t give in to make peace. I’m glad I have someone who can tolerate my bad temper and I’ve tried to keep my temper to the minimal always or things could get worse, isn’t it?
I do hope the people around me understand how I feel. It’s not that I don’t listen to views or opinions. But I just want people to take my own thinking and thoughts into consideration too.
So I think communication is a knowledge. If people can just be a little less straightforward in putting things across.
One of the possible way I could think of when putting suggestions is using this line:
I think you might have made the right choice. Maybe for the next time you can try this …
Is this better than just saying
I think there are better choices out there; why you choose this? walaueh.
Is that ….a little too much?
P/S to prawn: If you are reading this, I hope you know I’m not harping over the issue. I’m just saying in general. I will learn how to be less opinionated next time! PROMISE.
