My oblivious friends...

Reaffirming point #36 in my forty takeaways last year.


Most of the people (including the closest ones) around me keep trying to tell me what's good for me or how I should use my money and resources without really wanting to listen to what I really want to do with them.


Their ambitions are manifested in the monologue they have with me on whatsapp / wechat. I can tell that they want me to 'agree' with them. And agreement means I nod and concur.


My points of view, my current circumstances (whether emotional or financial) are irrelevant.


Never judge someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes. So why should anyone impose what they think I should do just because it has worked for them, without truly being in my current position and going through what I have gone through? It's really absurd that these same people claim to have high EQ but they'd never really demonstrated empathy and asked me the simple question of: "What are your plans?"
