Would you believe me if I told you that I came out of the womb, ranting and raving? Well, that’s how it’s felt, how I have been.
I am always making scenes, speeches, on the soapbox about the injustices of the world, about the faults of individuals, organizations, and so on. I’m always wondering what the hell is wrong with people. What makes them tick? I obsess about figuring it all out, to get to the bottom of things to the point where I’m doing myself harm. I’m sure a lot of the people around me would also like to do me harm, to give me a punch or two, to put me in my place! 🙂
Well, no more! I’ve heard that bell go off in my head. I’ve seen Oprah’s light bulb moment. Who the hell do I think I am…full of ego and righteousness. If I do any ranting and raving again, it better be about myself and my passions. Ranting about what is wrong has never worked for me. It only made me an angry Chinese woman. Being right doesn’t necessary make it right and it may not always be the best way to live life.
So, in the words of my forefathers, live softly, bend like the willow, but breathe like a dragon! I lied. These are my own words. Chinese women can lie. I am not so virtuous.
