I Ask Of You

I ask; what is personal belief? And at what point is your personal belief compromised?

Is personal belief something that you believe is right despite any doubts that you may have?

Is it compromised when you feel like going against your personal beliefs every time you run into the same situation?

Or is personal belief the very thing that prevents you from giving in to your emotions because deep down, you know that not giving in is the right move to do?

For example; my mother often makes rather hurtful remarks about the things. Destructive constructive criticism you may say. And for those of us in the Eastern culture in particular, it is very much unacceptable to talk back to your parents. Many a time in such situations, I feel like storming out of the room or shouting back at her.

So do I actually believe in my personal belief of not talking back no matter how much I want to? Or am I merely submitting myself painfully to the norms of society?

Slow Saturday...

It's a slow Saturday afternoon but at least it's not stressful. I always feel stressed out when I have to study for extended periods of time in my room. Maybe it's because I'm really REALLY studying. Hehehe. I can hear some jazz music coming from one of the neighbours. Sets a nice ambiance.

I was hoping to go out with my family today but my mom decided not to. Huhu. She said we would go out tomorrow. So for the time being, I'm alternating between 'studying' and looking up places to ride. Provided I can get another mountain bike for my dad. And a car rack. Haha.

Oh well. Guess that's it for now.

Au revoir.
