Everything comes dowm to how you see it.

It's not easy to be free from the idea or preconception once it's trapped you. No matter how hard you try to get rid of it or see things differently, it never ceases to eat you alive until it abandons you or it wears itself out. But, let's stop and think; is it really necessary to remove that idea or preconception and import a more ethical, more civilized, and more "right" one?

Some say "Everything comes down to how you see it." That is true, and it applies to the idea or preconception which you might think is evil, uncivilized, or unethical as a good human being, and try hard dumping. Well, life is short and only once. You never give away the freedom to have any idea or preconception of yours unless it harasses or annoys others.

Attention or Trust?

When it comes to drawing random attention from random people, things are very simple; you just can make a big noise or do something that people with sanity won't do.

How about eliciting attention from those who share the same interest with you? Things are not that easy. Imagine that you're a serious English learner, at least as you self-claim so, and you're fortunate enough to know or "discover" something truly valuable to other learners. What would you do with "the gems" you possess? Do you cherish them clandestinely on your own, or demonstrate egalitarianism by sharing the gems with those who are likely to appreciate them just like you'd do? What if what you think as the gems turns out not the gems but the crap, at least to some people's eyes?

Giving compliments or saying nice things publicly is one way to gain people's attention. People are never mean enough to ignore those nice words about themselves; they'll respond to you in a positive way or even send you back the equivalent amount of compliment. The "reward" you'd receive may make your life a bit easier, but never solves the problem. False compliments may attract short-lived attention, but compliments "for your own sake" won't work to gain long-lived trust. People are not so mean, but smart enough to see through the Difference.

#sayittomyself 20130826-0901

This is a new experiment (Things you'd do in your experiments are always, or have to be, new, so "a new experiment" could be redundant). I'll compile my random tweets with a hash tag of #sayittomyself as blog posts. Isn't it just lame that you can trace back your hash-tagged tweets only a few days earlier? Anyway, they are retrievable for some days.
NOTE: The following sentences are NOT proofread by native speakers of English or professional proofreaders. Use cautions when using or copying any word choice, collocated phrase, or sentence construction in them.

20130826: Today's certainty can be tomorrow's uncertainty. Yesterday's uncertainty can be today's certainty.

20130827: Keep yourself coachable, teachable, and trainable to the unfairness you face.

20130828: You can only be a second rate version of someone else, but you can always be a first and best version of yourself.

013:00829: I don't really like repeating myself, especially when asked to do so.

20130829: Probably I should convince myself that what they'd expect from me will never be identical to what I'd expect from myself. :)

20130901: One of the longーwaited outward changes in my life is my new scarcity on Twitter on weekends.

20130901: Sometimes life requires you to have the courage of your privilege.
