Strawberry Fields

"A leopard can't change its spots" - I hate this phrase. As much as I reject this saying, deep down inside, I know it may hold truth. Why? 20 years of living and I still feel like a misfit in a society that's so opinionated. 

Fair enough, everyone has an opinion and everyone has the right to share their opinions. But, I don't see why I can't do that. I've always had a problem with this since the younger days. & till' this very day I always find myself cringing at every authoritative stand or sentence I'd make. Let me reiterate, I have no idea why. Though, I don't think I show how much I cringe on my face anymore. 

You know what else hurts? The judgemental society we live in. I hate the judgement and expectation you'd get from strangers before you even get the chance to say anything. I mean, I understand that judgement is sort of a human instinct to protect ourselves from the unknown. But hey, it's 2017 - shouldn't we at least have an open mind about things? 

Stop categorising. Stop judging. Stop assuming. Open up, have conversations and learn more.

It's depressing to see people get depressed because they try to conform to the society's norm - and they just can't. Exhibit A. Me. 


On a brighter note, I visited the Sunshine Coast with an old friend last week. We went to the Strawberry Fields and it was very magical. $13 for 1kg; it was alright. 



     

I just have to add - the sunlight on was so on point.

- Sunshine Coast, Strawberry Fields, 2017 -

Bruised and rejected; that's how I'd describe myself. At the same time, I'd pride myself as someone who is optimistic and happy. One thing for sure, I'm a lot happier than teenage Dede.
