Life is so fragile

I just went to a funeral yesterday. Haiz~ Life is so fragile. We can only live in this world for such a short period of time so we must really live life to the fullest. On the other hand, sometimes if we live life to the fullest, we may hurt some people (who knows?). So should we be selfish and live life to the fullest or step back and spare a thought for others? Confusing~!!

Maybe Diana can understand what I want to convey but I am standing in her father's shoes now so.. Ah yoh~ Very fan lor. I don't know how to help her to resolve her issues also.

hiaz.. life is indeed short. on my way home, saw that there was a wake in a terrace house estate.

i suppose we all do things that sometimes hurt the people closest to us. what can i say.. quest for carpe diem clouds our judgement? I just hope that I'll never do things that hurt my children like what i am experiencing now.

@Diana: Ah yoh! Then see like my relative. He was only hospitalized for a few days before he passed away. Just like that. So if your Dad doesn't play and enjoy now, he will be 对不起自己 but if he does, he will be 对不起 you all. So anyway, need to 对不起 somebody/people.

Very headache just thinking about all these stuff. Got one time I was thinking no need family and friends. Just live alone then don't need to 对不起 anybody. Maybe next time I go retire on a farm and live with animals. Haha!

yeah.. u either let yourself down and may regret it later. Or let someone else down but enjoy like nobody's business. Think we humans are weak, at the end of the day we always love ourselves, put ourselves first.

may be a gd idea to retire and live in a farm. some animals are more loyal and faithful than human beings!

@Diana: Yeah lor. Let's start to accumulate our retirement funds! Then we can go buy a farm next time. Haha~!!
