Peace of my mind
Whoah, been awhile. My body is here and my mind’s elsewhere. I have been putting my thinking cap on for awhile. Too much thinking.
So what’s new with Brunei? I guess the hot news just a week ago was this girl who stood for almost three hours under the sun, clad in pink baju kurung and, (okay thats nothing, right?) AND, contemplating whether to jump or not from a rooftop of an eight-storey Government building.
Internet-savy Bruneians were quick to upload images and videos as the drama unfold via Facebook and Twitter. Apparently, the girl was one of those who are under-going counselling at the building for troubled girls. Nasty as well as empathy comments were thrown to her and some humour added to that. Personally to me, I felt sorry for her. I mean, what if she is your sister, daughter, cousin, friend? Would you joke about the situation? I think the good news was that she spent three hours on that rooftop, admiring the view? Maybe. Joke aside, I think she may not be that suicidal as she would do it the very moment she reached the top and ended her life there and then.
The issue here for me is: why does Brunei have troubled or disturbed people? Those who have psychological problems? Their minds not in peace? Is the world too much for them? Brunei, as far as I can say, is the most peaceful country on Earth. We dont have political instability here. Our health and education are among the best in the world and for many, we are the luckiest human being on this planet because we have the cheapest petrol, right?
So whats troubling you that you wanted to end your life, please tell me? I need to chill down myself for now, thank you.
