Yesterday, I came across Xiaxue's post on 'The Secret' and I decided to write something on this too.
The author (aka me)...
In P1/2, she was diagnosed with heart murmurs (which meant she had a hole in her heart) when she was young. Since then she was a frequent visitor to clinics and hospital.
She was underweight with a big belly (often went hungry). Her form teacher was a bully who slapped her face for having long fringe, threw her book across the room/ down 4 levels, hit her hands for failing spelling. Her parents always say: Respect teachers, they are always right.
[Hey, honestly, her Chinese-educated Mum taught her spelling and she did very well in front of her mother.
How she failed her spelling...
What she wrote in her notebook:
What her mother tested her:
What her teacher tested her:
What she wrote in her spelling book:
Total score: 0/5
Ok, order is very important, even my Mum didn't know and was curious why she kept failing my spelling when the words were all correct.
Inability to adjust to the situation. Teachers were always right in those times.
Her family was very poor when they were young. She was like a cinderella in a family with 5 kids and only one sole breadwinner. She was in the middle child with an elder sis, elder bro, younger sis and younger bro. Her dad often gambled away the money or spent on other women. Loan sharks would call our phone non stop, come hitting on the door. Our phone numbers were often changed. The best meal of the day was dinner. Leftovers from dinner would always be re-heated as breakfast and eventually lunch. Primary school was just a stone's throw away.
She prayed to her God every night (she believed that all gods are actually the one and the same as long as her God can answer her prayers.)that she could pick up 10/20/50 cents or a dollar so that she could buy things like stationery/food when she was young and she did.
She prayed that she could live beyond 21 and she did.
When she was 11, she suffered from a high fever and was hospitalised for a week. She struggled with medical conditions all her life but never gave up.
She prayed she could get a good education and get a degree so that she can come out of the vicious poverty cycle.
She prayed that she could get free dinner after any seminar in university ( hey, engineering degree is really very tedious, went for lessons for 4 years for 5.5 days a week in school, stayed from dawn till dusk on weekdays, dawn to 1-2 pm on sat. we were poor remember?!) Her brother studied in the same course but in a more prestigious university. Her dad bought her brother a laptop. She begged very hard and got a desktop to share with her remaining 3 siblings.
She made a wish to be married by 28 and she did. She was lucky, snatched up a handsome, muscular young man (still handsome and muscular and looks like her son now - remember now she puts on so much weight?!).
Gradually she forgot to give her thanks and took things for granted.
She suffered from health issues and the more negative she was, the more health problems surfaced before they were even properly addressed/ eradicated. Her weight increased.
She came across a video on the secret more than a year ago.
If she has given up, she would have felt upset and that will create a multiplier effect which will avalanche into a greater problem.
