We often thought that things are one dimensional until we learn how to see in different perspectives. For a child, things are always absolute. It is either right or wrong, black or white, higher or lower. But often, things in real life are multidimensional. Until someone is willing to open up their mind, it is often quite hard to convince them. What is worst is that they think they know it all.

We often start with a stage where we don’t know anything. Then we think we know something, and then we think we know everything. Beyond that, we realised we actually don’t really know anything. And that is where wisdom truly begin.

Hi, I am Benjamin. I am a Singaporean son, born and bred. I came from a modest background, just like most Singaporeans and went to mainstream schools like most middle-class Singaporeans. What makes me different is my unconventional choices and journey in life, giving me a different insight into life. I share my thoughts not because I think I am right but to be corrected if I am wrong. I am not too concerned about who is right but what is right. Drop me a PM or leave a message and I am happy to talk about anything!
