Today's topic is SincerityI'm been living for the past 16 years and 4 months of my life and still, I think I'm still looking for the meaning of this word. Metaphorically speaking, of course.
According to the Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia that I've searched in the internet, Sincerity is the virtue of one who speaks truly about his or her own feelings, thoughts, desires. While the Oxford English Dictionary and most scholars state that sincerity from sincere is derived from the Latin sincerus meaning clean and pure.
Okay...Enough formalities...Or should I say, trying to sound smart...XD
Back to the main topic, I wanted to know how can someone be sincere?
You may have learned about it when you schooled in a religious school. I know I have. It's not something that you need to learn at school, really, but you learn it throughout your life.
I used to have a couple of friends back in the days when you play hopscotch. Honestly, I don't have a very nice childhood or even memories for that matter. I thinks it's when I was a 2nd-grader (Darjah 2). Everyday, there's this two Wannabe Olsen Twins that always like to 'borrow' my money. It's about 20 cent almost everyday. There's one time, I said I'm out of money, they said I was lying. They even CHECKED my pocket just to make sure!
Then, there's one who always takes advantage of me because I never say no. If it's something unburdening, of course, i would like to help but sometimes it's something that they don't even wanna do it.
Then, there's one who stabs me in the back, okay it wasn't really that serious but hey, I have feelings too! Masa tu, masa mengaji, Kita dah sampai (tak ingatla, rasanya) juzud 20 and kawan kita seorang ni juzud 19, pastu dia minta la orang tunggu dia, after days later, orang tu dah agak jauh, kita pun minta la dia tunggu kita tapi tengok2 dia taknak , dia kata cepatlah, nape lambat sgt...
That's how the story goes...Camne? kejam tak? Hahaha...No? Well....Whateverla..The past is the past..XD
My mom always say, "Ikhlas ni macam berak & flush.."
I don't know if I should imagine that...XD
But I think I get it, imagine that 'berak' is the things that you do sincerely and flush is not saying about it...
When you flush, you can't actually dig it out just to show to someone right?
Same goes with being sincere...
So remember to always FLUSH after you've done your business, 'aight?
