As usual, watching the Korean dramas which I really think bring out human’s emotions and inner thoughts really well – a reason why I continue watching (or if you’d like me to introduce another verb: ‘chasing’) these dramas. As idealistic as it can be, but again, in general I find them rather realistic. They have brought me much joy especially when I can’t download shows in school (not that I do so) but streaming Korean dramas/ variety shows/ movies have taught me quite a bit about life. They remind me about things I’ve always had a hard time expressing it to others.. and reason for this post is because I recently chanced upon some words which I would love to relate to:
Did you know your father used to wet his bed until he was well over 40 years old? He suffered from an illness. I secretly took care of him. One time I called him a bed-wetter jokingly, and he got very upset. He told me to get botox shots because he couldn’t stand seeing my wrinkly face. He said this is why he shouldn’t have let a commoner into the royal family. People are like that. We can be very childish. If we start looking for places to pick fights… Weakness? Secret? We use those to attack the other. At the end, we don’t even remember what we’re fighting each other. We just focus on how we can maximise the other’s pain. That’s all we end up thinking about. But still, your father and I never spoke about breaking up. Why? Because we know that’s the end. That’s a line you should never cross.
Since our fates crossed and we became colleagues, we should treat one another as our own limbs, being the closest comrades ever.
“To notice things, slow down and reflect, to be less attached to stuff, and to judge less frequently.” from Tiny Buddha
Unfortunately we humans may have selfishly been doing these to our fellow family members, friends and maybe even strangers during difficult and competitive moments. But this again, taught me something about us humans and the lives we lead.
