I should not treat people the way I don’t want to be treated.
“I’ve been working here for 6 years and there are some customers who are friendly but some are not so friendly to those who are looking to make a living. I never take it too serious whenever a customer comes to my stall but I consider it as a lesson. I should not treat people the way I don’t want to be treated.
This is what I taught to my kids. My kids are still in school in Indonesia but as a mother, I find myself worrying about them. I know they can manage themselves very well but I’m afraid of them mingling around with the wrong group. I don’t want my child to be an uneducated citizen and I want the people who surround him to be comfortable with him.
My child’s aspiration is to become a school teacher. In order to support my child’s dream, I send money to my village, almost half of my salary and keep another half for my daily expenses. While everyone is complaining about economic problems, I can only follow the flow and spend money for the necessities. “
