To Son from Another Mother

Listening to Jordan Peterson reminds me of you. I think he speaks to you and I, an over-consumed generation with lost responsibilities, commitment and ethics.

Young people without a strong role model or family support can easily feel dehumanized in a capitalist-dominant society such as Hong Kong, where prices will always almost precede morals.

Then, there’s the middle class who can afford to look beyond their immediate survival and plan for the future. First, they discover it’s not a problem of not having enough money. Then, they discover it’s not a problem of not having enough space. Finally, they discover that it’s our ever-wanting mind that is driving all of us insane, to another degree.

Then, there are dumb people who take words literally. One word is at least five interpretations; two people are on at least two frequencies, that is, if the hearts don’t match. Language is a code, manifested in all kinds of format, be it touches, words or acts of care etc. Remember to read The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People before reading The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate.
