Toxic People

Guys, sorry for just coming back again to my blog. I've been a bit busy lately. FYI, I just started studying for master degree last month. So, here I am in Singapore again! :)

"Some people are just toxic. You don't need to fix them. You just need to avoid them." 

This time I'm gonna talk about an interesting topic (I guess). It's inspired by my lecturer from Ireland. That time when he was teaching in my class, he said, "Some people are just toxic. You don't need to fix them. You just need to avoid them". Somehow what he said is true.

Don't you think so? It's like we can always find this kind of people wherever we are. I never get bored to say it again and again: you can't please everyone. And this kind of people are one of them that you should not please.

When I was a kid, I would do anything to make everybody to like me. For me, it was not right to have a hater, even just one. Every time there was just one person who didn't like me, I would try to get it right and make the person change his mind.

But that's not who I am today. I mean, why should I even bother? Why should I care and waste my time for those kind of people? If they don't like me, it's their problem, not mine. Right?

One thing I learn: you can't make everybody like you. Surely there are always those people who just try to bring you down. Even when you have become your best, they will still try to find weaknesses in you. You know what they say, "Hater's gonna hate". All they do is just to find imperfection in you and point out their fingers to your mistakes.

I know you know what I'm saying. It's just so common. It's so easy to find this kind of people, wherever you are, whoever you are.

Well, you and I are just human. We can't always be right. Sometimes we make mistakes, and sometimes it makes people don't like it. If that's the case, try to evaluate yourself and learn from your mistakes. However, there's also a time when some people just keep looking for something wrong in you. And it's dangerous if you listen to them. They can destroy you. I hope you know the difference between these kinds of people.

So, the best thing you can do is just to be positive. You know yourself the best. If it's because you're wrong, try to fix it. But if it's just them who try to find something wrong in you, don't even care. Life's too short to waste your time for them. After all, just like what my lecturer said, you don't have to fix them. You just need to avoid them.

You're a valuable person. Don't let anyone keep showing your weaknesses and make you feel like you're someone worthless. Never.

Change the Perspective

One of people who inspire me the most is Nick Vujicic . I believe many of you know about this man. If you don't, well, he's a man with no arms and no legs. Although he has this disability, he still lives his life to the fullest. He swims. He surfs. He married. He does whatever he wants. Even he inspires many people around the world with great stories about his amazing life. Isn't he really a huge inspiration? I'm sure you know what I'm gonna write here. Many things we can learn from him, like being thankful, enjoying life, creating your happiness, or living the life you want no matter what the circumstance is. But I want to talk about his great life from a little bit different thing. He inspired me in one thing when I read his book. If there's one thing I can learn from him, it's that you can't always change your problems, but you can always change the way you see it . You can't always change your problems, but you can always chang

Remy and His Passion

This is the second post of Disney Lessons on my blog, and this time I'm gonna talk about that little mouse from Ratatouille . Yup, Remy ! For you who don't watch this movie, Ratatouille is a Disney movie about a little mouse, Remy, who's expert in cooking, and he secretly helps a chef named Linguini who can't cook at all. For some people who watch it, maybe this movie is funny because it's about a mouse that helps a chef to cook just by hiding in the chef's hat and controlling what he does with his hair. But this movie becomes very inspirational when you see it from this mouse's perspective. His name is Remy. His passion is in cooking. The most inspiring thing about Remy is, nobody supports him to cook. Everybody disagrees with him, even his father really hates him for doing that. But, it's about passion. His heart is in cooking. But then, back to the fact again: he's a mouse! How to be a chef when you're a mouse? By the way, I like how

Look to God, not Yourself

Few days ago, suddenly I was moved to post this topic on this blog, and a perfect title came to me. Look to God, not yourself. This title really represents what I want to share with you right now. Some friends of mine, who are also following my Twitter, told me that I tweet a lot about God. Yeah, maybe it's true. I told them my reason, " Because God has the biggest role in my life. I can talk about my life, my problems, myself, but all of them are nothing if there's no God behind it. There are many things in my life that I really can't do alone. Even when I've done my best, I still can't. I need God. Only God can help me and make it work. " God is the key of everything in my life. Without God, I'm just an imperfect and weak man. Life is too challenging, I can't even handle it with my own strength and ability. I am not able. That's why I really need to look to God. The only reason I stand still now is because I look to God. There are
