There is a saying “It’s much better to act once than thinking a thousand times”. Eventually, I have decided to do what I'd like to do with courage.
Recently, Hong Kong has got sick. You and I can feel it too. There's so much word and feeling I want to say, but it’s too difficult to express or describe it. Maybe we just all need a secret and comfortable place for us to unburden the stress and here it is! Thank you for being with me here. It will be updated frequently!
Honestly, were you also being political apathy same as me before? Feeling politics is far from us and nothing much we can do about it or make a change? Thinking there’s much more thing needed to be taken care of in life? Do you still think it’s not close to our life after all the things happened on 9th June, 12th, 16th and 1st July? Some people said “Don’t lose a relationship because of politics.”
I said, “Don’t lose yourself because of a superficial relationship.”
Having dispute and different opinions or points of view is normal. What’s most important is to have a peaceful and rational discussion without perceptions or prejudgement objectively. If a relationship (family, friendship or love) can’t even do this little thing, just let it go. There’s no more reason to maintain those kinds of “relationship”.
Family, we have no choice but to silently wish they would understand it someday. At least they wouldn’t blame the protestors.
Friends and lover, we have the choice. It’s doesn’t matter to have different opinions because it helps you to understand each other more through the differences, to minimize the gap between two of you and let the factor which might be harmful originally to become a supplement for the relationship. If you already tried your best, still couldn’t make any positive effects on the relationship, it’s okay, at least you have done your part.
I’m not blaming politics tears us apart. I just hope someday when we look back and see each other, there’s a smile on our face.
