Is this an incorrect perception? Biased perhaps. Stereotypes are often biased.
maafkan ku kalau anda tak suke gambo tu. silakan kata saya. It was meant to tease, but not to hurt. Sometimes it is hard to know the difference, yeah? ok. [update: am i being too serious bout this? hmm, just lil bit]
I've been teased a lot at various times (like everybody, right?), been physically hurt a few times (ouch!), and emotionally hurt once badly it shattered me (took some time to recover from that). Life is complicated, sometimes painful, and sometimes tears are all there is. I hope I don't make you cry, but sometimes I hope you do cry anyways. Because some people cannot cry, they can only hate and harm themselves and others around them. sian. They may lose their humanity. Let's keep it. Real life ain't made for emo crybabies, but it ain't for robots either. [update: I hope that doesn't sound harsh. I meant that if someone is always weeping or never weeps at all, maybe they would benefit from rebalancing therapy or medical treatment. ok, now i sound like a softie. can't win for tryin.]
Earn your tears, face your fears. aite. jom. gambatte ne.
