Unvoiced discontent

Having grown up in China, I was exposed to the world’s largest population of doubtfulness.

The country-wide famine of faith in oneself and in others is transmitted across generations. The generation of our parents are not well trusted, thus they have learned too little about its importance to sufficiently trust their kids. Hence, our generation, the kids, are starving for confidence and thus freedom.  Believe me – it hurts when you are acquiring the two essential things of life at a much older age than an average kid from another country. Luckily and unluckily, I myself, among many others as I believe, have learned them in a painful way, and my parents never know.
