Only until you speak to someone, then you know what the world is like to them. Yes, we all live under the same sky, seeing the same sun and moon. Surprise? Maybe. Because we are all categorized under different nationality, race, and gender. Sometimes, we forget that we are all human, just being raised differently to have different concept. We are so caught up that we are correct and that there could only be one thing to follow. However, if you were to ask a 5 year-old kid how the universe is like to them, I think they will see all rainbow and sunny, and everyone is as innocent as them.
We all once thought that there will be a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. We were once clueless. It is not a bad thing, of course. It is the best thing ever to go through life with hope and dream. Joy and love. Even though as we grow older, we have seen more than enough dirty things that life has to offer. Betrayal, heartbreak, misery, pitfall, judgement, rejection, loneliness, emptiness and the list goes on and on. The good and the bad, they all shape us into who we are today. Our point of view twists and turns over and over, again and again. These could be the reasons why we can never be transparent causing confusion and regrets to ourselves and our love one.
(Most of them are Vietnamese and I am not.)
I have met a lot of people from different background and ethnicity in just about two weeks time. We are a lot similar than I used to think, but at the same time so different. They carry their mindset with them and I carry mine. For the first time in my life, I have to train myself so hard to be as open-minded as possible. People have various beliefs and I need to accept that. Everyone has their agenda and it is okay to not know what it is. It is true that there are good and bad people. We cannot do anything about it. Although, what we can do is to be cautious. There are books and articles you can read about psychology. Putting it to practice is difficult, yet you know what to watch out for. Therefore, it can be a little bit more reassuring.
Be kind always. Be tough. Be smart. Be positive. Spread love. Most importantly, be yourself.
