Worried about David

It rained again.

Again, it is always the rain that would put me into deep thoughts.

It feels like the rain might have some super pow­er over me I don’t know.

I was hav­ing a con­ver­sa­tion with David, when he told me that he already got a boy friend now. I should have thought better.

Read­ing Apol­lo David’s post on being kind, I felt the same sit­u­a­tion is bestow upon me.

David had want­ed to con­tin­ue his stud­ies after his sec­ondary school. I felt the moment of me and The Boy hunt­ing for high­er edu­ca­tion all over again. David him­self was a lit­tle con­fused with the cours­es that are being offered. I helped a lit­tle, and added even more con­fu­sion. I had a slight idea that might help David, I sug­gest­ed to him.

When we were about to enroll him­self, he reluc­tant­ly said that he want to check out the oth­er places, and also to con­firm these with his par­ents. So we stopped at there.

Some events hap­pened in between. David’s par­ents want­ed him to go to Form 6, David want­ed to con­tin­ue on media stud­ies, conflicts.

David moved out, he told me that he went to his friend’s place to stay. I had sus­pect the friend might be some­one that I am afraid that he might be, I kept quiet.

The ‘friend’ had sug­gest­ed that David con­tin­ue his stud­ies at some unknown Chi­nese insti­tu­tion. The ‘friend’ also sug­gest that David work him­self in retail.

First­ly, David hates retail. Long hours, and low pay. Plus the stand­ing, and etc.

His ‘friend’ man­aged to per­suade David into work­ing retail. When I asked David, I found out that the friend is a mid 30s, work­ing in retail.

The ‘friend’ man­aged to brain­wash David. Two things for sure. First, to enroll him­self in a sec­ond rat­ed insti­tu­tion, and sec­ond­ly to work in a place where expens­es might be even high­er than the salary itself.


All these while, I was afraid that David might be cheat­ed by some­one. Like a lost sheep.

Even though the day had not come, I am begin­ning to feel it that way.

Oh, David also got fucked by the ‘friend’ and they are both ‘lovers’ now. How convenient.

Sigh, the more you care, you real­ly wor­ry even more.

Why do I care so much ? Because I do not want his­to­ry to repeat itself. David, it’s time to real­ize who are your friends!

    what to do if he is still stub­born like the bull even after you telling him this and that?? brain­wash­ing is bad!! but he is big enough to make deci­sion… he need to go through all these stuff, then only i guess he would be awak­ened ya…

    yeah friend!! the more you care, the more you wor­ry! just give him prop­er advices from time to time =p

    u know what? maybe some­times, the boy need to fail on his own to realize/learn and get expe­ri­ence in life. no ¿


    but, he is at the age where, it will make or break him in this life if he make the wrong deci­sions though.

    i don’t know what i would do if i were u dude.…..

      I know, maybe some­times I do not like or want to see them fail, that is why I cared so much ?

    aww… i can only say that u r one car­ing dude! as for david…

    well… when peo­ple are in trou­bled sit­u­a­tion… they tend to lean on the near­est thing pos­si­ble… but he’s lucky to have you wor­ry­ing for him lor…

    hope every­thing will get bet­ter for him… and for you… cheer up, at least you have uni to look for­ward to, right?

      The near­est thing is no longer me .. is the friend cum boyfriend now.

      Which is sad, because the ‘friend’ seems to be more car­ing than I am.

    You have a very impres­sive col­lec­tion of pho­tos. Mind me ask­ing what cam­era & lens­es do you use?

    Your blog is sleek and clean. It makes me feel like vis­it­ing again :o)

      @ai shi­ang,

    I guess as a con­cerned friend, all we can do is to advise him appro­pri­ate­ly … some­how, as dif­fi­cult as it may seem, we may still have to ‘respect’ his deci­sion. We can­not force him, no mat­ter how obvi­ous the “mis­take” may seem from our point of view. All we can do is to conit­nue to give him infor­ma­tion and opin­ion, and leave at that. Oth­er­wise, he may blame us if things don’t go right.

      Maybe, I don’t want to see him get hurt. That’s all.
