So last 2 weeks, Kiki had given birth to 4 cute kittens but unfortunately 1 died.
Anyways that’s not the main purpose of this post.
It has been like a habit for me to give other names to my cats apart from the official name that I gave them before. I couldn’t resist their cuteness and thus had led me to say weird names out of my concious and they eventually became like a ‘nickname’.
I don’t usually call her by the name Kiki, but I would playfully call her ‘Mishi’ , ‘Rocky’ , ‘Kushi’ and many more. But apparently, the name ‘Mishi’ comes out often rather than the other.
One fine day, I was calling her by the name Mishi but she didn’t respond to me! ‘Such a snob this cat.’
Then I began to find other names for her and suddenly my mouth uttered, “Ashikin!” (Still sounds a bit like Mishi btw 😂). She seemed fine with the name.
I told my dad, “From this moment, her name is Ashikin..”
And my dad replied, “Laila Ashikin” followed by some unknown rhythm.
Ok my dad wins.
From now on, she is officially known as Laila Ashikin.
I hate it how people compare between two person. Especially when one of those person is me. And the other is someone close to me.
‘She’s prettier/cleverer/(insert whatever you need to judge)’ ‘She’s so not like the other..’ ‘Why isnt she like that?..’ ‘They’re totally different..’ ‘She should’ve been like this..’
bla bla bla…
Listening to these sentences just breaks my heart over and over again — whether I’m labelled as ‘the good one’ or not. Heck. Why on earth do you have to compare? We’re totally fine with the differences before you point them out and make we see it as something so bad.
Don’t you see it? You’re stealing our happiness away. You make us feel inferior; insecure with our own selves. You make us count our flaws and be less grateful.
Can’t you accept it that everyone differs from another? We’re special in our own way. We’re not going to live in other people’s shadow and not having the dream to grow bigger. We live for our own goals and not just to please your eyes.
I beg you the ‘compare-er’, can you please stop? If you could see the pieces of heart that broke, and how long it would take to recover, surely you will say nothing but good words.
After all, we’re just the same.
Disclaimer : I know in some cases, comparing is good because it leads to self-improvement. But in this case, it’s all about making one feel less confident in his/her own skin. Comparing would be better if it’s between the old you and the new you; not between two person.
So I’ve been reading so many blogs lately and I found that it’s quite fun pouring out your thougts so that you can reminisce it later. I noticed that I always share my thoughts in long paragraphs via wechat — that I think people might get annoyed with me hehe. I cant keep this voice in my head to myself. Well we all have that one voice and sometimes it split into two! Haha.
So that is the reason I am starting a blog — to channel my thoughts through the right medium 😊 well at least I have something to laugh at myself in future when I dig down the blog 😂 like how I did when I scrolled down my timeline in fb. Geez whos that girl who post a picture saying :
Favourite colour :
And loads of craps 😂😂 I deleted some of it though. Can’t bear with the.. umm.. aaa.
I dont want to say it but its kinda ‘stupid’. And cheesy. Gahhh.
So here I am on a Raya Haji with a basic simple blog with high hopes that I will keep the consistency in blogging. 🌷
