While waiting for the doctor to call back for the results of my dad's blood test, might as well I just blabber out what I feel and think tonight...
Allah test us with money, power / position, women (for men) and luxury. Most of the time people tend to forget their roots once they have some extra money or money comes in their pocket in abundance. Normally people who measure success in life by having plenty of money and wealth are most likely to forget their roots or the Malay would says "lupa daratan". People who likes to show off their wealth, those who wants and loved to be praised, those who loves when people look at them because they are using the latest gadget, these are the people who, once have a little bit extra in their life, will think that they are the best and perfect person in the world. Nobody else is better than them. They forget to respect their elderly, they even forget who their elder sister or elder brother are. They no longer respect their sibling cause they think they are the most successful people in the family. They might interprate this comment as being jealous of their success but little that they know that they have hurt other people's feeling by their lack of respect of other people. Younger sister will now be rude to the elder sister. Younger brother no longer care about his elder brother.
Then there this people who are selfish, thinking for just themselves and nothing else but themselves. These type of people will just do whatever they like without thinking or considering the feeling of others. The combination of this and the above attitute makes it even worse!
Other annoying attitute is not being punctual. I mean, please la, think of others. While the rest can make it on time and make effort to not waste other people's time, why can't you? And the best part, not even an apology for being late. Not to mention you are the one always being late and people have just to accomodate with your attitute. It's really annoying! This is part of selfishness.
So, in life you must be humble. Don't think that just because you have that much money that you are so great. Don't think that you have spend such an amount of money for your parents that the other siblings are at a lower class than you. You wouldn't know, your other siblings may have contributed more but quietly. There are others that have much more than you but act so humble. And finally the world does not revolves around you only!!!
