Be happy, don't worry





We always say if you have no worries, you are the most happy man in the world.And who really has no worries? Rich people would worry about how to make more money and how to spend money. Poor people everyday worry about how and where to earn more money just to survive. We always think mentally sick people have no worry. That is wrong.Look at the above pictures. He surely is mentally not sound. Look more closely at his facial expression...he obviously looks very disturbed and worried. Among the mentally sick people and wanderers or homeless people in Sibu, this guy can be considered the "class 1 category". He is clean,properly attired, no visible injuries on his body and looks physically strong. Can anybody explains why is he in this situation, having so many throwaway cans, plastic bags and containers ,umbrella handle etc all over his body? I think we can only achieve total peace of mind in next life, that is if you go to heaven.

stp:I think you got it wrong. This guy is not the one " Buon Ngui Siok Doi eh" ( Give me RM1) He is much more older,thinner and taller than this guy.

i pity them (the mentally disturbed people) because they do not know what they are doing and have no aim or future direction.

eiling: I agree with you.Some of them are totally rejected by their own families, that's why they end up on the streets.

Mental health is an important part of our life. More people should be aware of it in Sibu. Support groups have already sprouted up in many parts of the world.

Remember we are not islands. We need to lend a hand to all these people who are marginalised because they have a "strangeness".

Good and sensitive posting.

hornbill: Sarikei No 1 is a lucky man!. He knows all the Ministers/VIPs and he wears and acts like a minister too.I had also met him before in a bank in Sarikei.
