Summary – Never base your decision on emotion
Let’s assume you found a wallet. Inside there’s about $1000 and an identity card. You will be able to return the wallet to the owner with the address attached to the identity card.
There’s a catch anyway. You actually knew the owner. The owner is actually one of your sworn nemesis or enemy. He is an actual bad person, always calling you names, and always hurt your feeling by making fun of you.
Will you still return the wallet to your enemy?
The right thing to do is of course to return the wallet to the owner, irregardless of how bad he is. That’s the way we actually have to practice.
When given a choice, always do the right thing and never let emotion cloud your mind.
Today, here in Malaysia, everyone is talking about one thing – The General Election. For those who votes, you will be facing choices, between two or more opposing political parties. What ever your choice will be, please do one thing.
Never let emotion lead your decision. You by now should have your principle on the matter. Follow that principles.
People will always be people. They will annoy other people, and talk behind everyone’s back about other people. Usually on the bad side of things. Why should you let this interfere with your judgment? Discard these gossips and make the right choice based on your principles.
Come to think of it, even though there is no election going on, we should never base our decision on emotion. Don’t you think?
——— Personal Note ———
I will be heading back to Kuala Lumpur immediately after I cast my vote. Tomorrow I will start working and apparently a lot of projects to oversee.
For my Malaysian friends, happy voting!
