Do you want to be liked by others?

There is a post people often visit and read on my blog. That is about a book “The Courage To Be Disliked”.

Do you want to be liked by others?

I guess almost all people answer this question YES. I do want to be liked by others, everybody!

Actually it’s impossible. Because people always judge others through their own sense of values. So you should realize it’s waste of your time to try hard to be liked by others. Even if you come to be liked by others, you will have to continue to make an effort as their slave forever.

If you want to live as you are, it might be the time to read this book.

“The Courage To Be Disliked”   written by Ichiro Kishimi and Fumitake Koga 

A perfect three months.

It was a perfect three months in Hong Kong!!

I charged new energy at yoga classes with my favorite teacher Megala. I took her class almost everyday and can tell I’m recovering and getting tough again even though l had a really bad pain in the right elbow when I came here.

Thank you so much to all lovely people, you guys are always awesome!

Now I’m ready to move on!!

An arrogant man.

English is an international language now, and we can usually communicate with others in English in the world.

There are many people here in Hong Kong who can speak English well. English always helps me to have conversations with them.

I saw a man at a cafe today. He started complaining as soon as he took a seat. He is a native English speaker and didn’t seem to be able to communicate with locals in English smoothly.

He said, “Their English pronunciation is terrible!”

I thought how arrogant he is and felt pity for him at the same time because he doesn’t know that we need to try to understand each other when we communicate with others.

Language is just a tool.
