(Okay, I exaggerated a little bit. Takkanla sbb x dpt beli lauk favourite sampai sebulan x tegur kan? Haha! Rekaan semata2 hokaay..)
I’ve been both, Minah and Lela. Sometimes, as humans, we are just too…. dependent. We ask our friends for help (when we ourselves are capable of doing it) and when they can’t help us (due to other waaaay more important things/commitments), we start to get mad. Whether we show it to their faces or a silent treatment. Is that really necessary? What if we’re in Lela’s situation? We try to help our friends but there are other bigger things that we need to handle first, and finally, we let them down because they don’t get what they want. I’ve been in Lela’s situation a few times now, and yeah, every time it happened, I felt guilty. So guilty that I felt like buying something as a peace-offering to make it up though I really didn’t have to. Now, when it happened again, I started to get annoyed. I mean, if you ask other people for help, and then your request can’t be fulfilled, you shouldn’t get mad. Remember, for whatever reasons, it’s your fault for not doing it yourself. Trust me, even though you’re too dependent, people are not that unhelpful. They’ll help as much as they can, but when they can’t, you should just appreciate the effort.
I know sometimes we need other people to help us because we have no choice, but when you’re not being fully attended to as what you expected, you should just keep your dissatisfaction to yourself (unless if you feel you have the right to, for example, if you’ve already given your money and they didn’t return it etc) otherwise, just move your lazy bum and do it on your own.
Okay dah. Tu je nak cakap. Babai!
