I have been reading all your private messages to me and I want to thank you for your sincere and heartfelt sharing of your journeys and insecurities. I did not know that a small part of my life would resonate with so many of you. I was merely doing what I knew best at each crossroad of my life. During the earlier more tumultuous times of my growing up pains, social media did not exist. I felt for the most part alone. Hence, the talking-to-myself-phase you heard in the interview. Now, it should be much easier to reach out for help, since we are supposed to be more connected on several platforms, such as this one. Kudos to Andie, and Jasmin, Joyce and Jermaine, his team of young and talented crusaders, for not settling on creating easy content just to gain likes, but content that people need. It is the tougher path, but oh so worth it.
The interview above was conducted two days before I left Singapore for Paris. It has been almost 3 months now, and I have gained so much—3 Kg and a whole library of memories.
You don’t need the whole world to approve. You just need one or two very important people. But the most critical approval comes from yourself. Good luck and and may we continue to seek solace in one another. This is one reason why I embrace this virtual environment. It brings hearts together. As one.
The world is big, and filled with brilliant minds. Find them.
I wish you well.
