Dorm number 14 - short stories 2020

See, Write, and Post-it. Our eyes see and record every memory that goes on in life.
It's raining outside, drizzling, and cold. I looked at my phone, it's 5.45 O'clock in the evening. It was a gloomy Saturday, I was at home, alone again. Thinking of my little sister but she was with my dad. And I am stuck with my mom.  It's been a month, I'm living with my mother. Only the two of us. I missed my dad, and my little sister, she was 10 years old. But, they both live in the cities. We had a family issue, my father and mother got divorced, not long ago. I haven't seen my dad and sister for a year. This grown-up thing messed up my childhood.   
I still contact my dad, video call with him, and my little sister. I am 8 years older than her. But, we both really close to each other. I am now 18 years old, finally, I can make my own decision, and I hope I got an opportunity to go to the cities. Being away from home. I love my mom, but I don't like her boyfriend. She seem…

December with kindness - season of giving

We are already entering the season of giving. For the past 3 days, I was at the conference for work purposes. And I remember the spokesperson as saying "Be kind to everyone even though they treat you like trash". It is a very harsh word, but that is the reality as what we are facing nowadays.

No matter how good we tried to show to people, we get bash. It happened to me all the time. My old good friend said "we don't need to prove to anyone by doing something good to them, just let them see, and if they are judging you the way you handle a situation, or help others, just ignore, just let them judge you because you don't need to explain to everyone on what you are doing. You're wasting your energy to entertain them."

Just like Selena Gomez's song - Kill them with Kindness.

Why we should be kind to others? 

1) Some people need our help

We might not realize it, but some people were just not as lucky as everyone. Maybe, they had a rough day, and of course, it is not our job to make them happy. But, yeah, we can't help in anyways, but what is given to us, our ability to help others, then do it. You are not losing anything. Help others based on what you could help. If you can't help them with your advantage then give them comfort.

2)  Be kind to make you feel better

I was born in a simple family, and we are not that very rich people, I would say I just have a very lucky family by my side even we not living in a luxury. And I know to live in that situation, broken family, or don't have any is not easy. I've been there and I understand the feeling of having nothing. By seeing people who needed our help, and helping them in a way actually makes me feel better. I don't have much, but being able to be kind to anyone just make feels enough.

3)  Kindness can make a new friend.

Well, though not many will agree with me, even you doing your best to befriend anyone, still, you got zero feedback. P/s, no one want to be friends with you. However, if you are kind, a new friend will come by at the time you would not expect.
