Just choose to leave it. That's it.

After reading some people's stories, I do know I can do more what I want or am able to, but I focus too much on the expected or imagined loss.

Those people who are capable to fulfill their dream do have economic difficulties. They show that insufficient resources or lacking conditions are just barriers but not a judgement like in a court.

People always give up doing something when others disagree or they lack money. They result in living within the norms, and building an iron cage for themselves.

Remembering that my first Couchsurfing host gave up using mobile for freedom in an urban area of Melbourne, Australia. Thinking of a Polish girl I met in Bangkok who didn't have her own computer for academic studies not because of poverty. People who own too much may just think they are so strange without asking themselves why. We try to possess more and more and it's more and more difficult to live within those "necessities", while they can be free from themselves and don't blame if there are external forces or pressure. Just choose to leave it. That's it.

有時候,尤其看了一些人們的故事,心裡覺得其實自己可以做的事情有很多,自己不是沒能力更進一步,可是還是過分從損失的一方面看。

我想他們並不是沒有經濟難題,而資源和條件問題其實只是阻力,但仍不足以把應做或想做的事情完完全全的否決。

別人的反對或是條件不足,其實都不是不前進的藉口。因為這樣而回到框框之下,那框框的範圍愈來愈少,成為一個鐵寵。那鐵寵,其實是自己築起來的。

回想第一次Couchsurfing墨爾本host乾脆放棄使用手機,讓自己自由自在;也回想在曼谷認識的波蘭女生,即使在大學要求電腦交功課都沒有打算買一部。這樣的舉動讓人看了可以奇怪之後又是奇怪,然後沒有什麼結論,但是所謂不能失去的必需品,如果能夠有別的看法和做法,而沒有任何埋怨,那至少是一個值得思考的問題。
