Since I have not been going to office for the past two weeks, there is not much story I could tell about my students..There are a few of them whom I have been catching up lately..Those who are still rememberand concerned about me
anyway, the above topic that I chose today is not that I am being sensitive lately..I am doing great, alhamdulillah :-D Enjoying my life at home with my Bibi until 3.20pm everyday ( minus friday, sat and sunday).
This is about others being sensitive..or I would say too sensitive..
I remember when I had my 1st operation in 2007, I did not disclose about my illness to my friends. It was a very personal matter until the last day when I need to inform to some of them about the operation whcih was schduled on the next day. I found out later, after the operation and I was discharged from the hospital, that there was one of my colleagues who felt offended ( kecil hati la) that I didn not infrom her personally. Of course, she did not come and visit me at all.
Another inicident happened in 2008 when one of my students passed away in Ramadhan. I did not tell her about the death right away..I mean the moment I heard the news at 5am in the month of Ramadhan..I had no idea that she knows the students. Besides, I did not send message to any of my friends including her until afternoon. My friend sent me a text message that she felt kecik hati sebab tak bagi tau pada masa tu jugak..
This year, 2009, I had again another operation and I did not infrom about it to one of my female friends. ( yg lain pula ni..) I was informed later that female friend kecik hati dgn saya because I did not tell her and she got the news from somebody. Of course, no message, no email no visit from her.. well, I have no idea what to say. I am sure all of you know when is the right time to disclose about yolur sickness to others. If no one asks about your health and wellbeing, I dont think you will make anouncement to anyone you bump into. Sometimes, you need find the right time and right place to do that...
I hope by tomorrow ( 9th June), when I turn 40 years old, I will become more matured woman and learn not to be selfish..
A friend in need is a friend indeed..
