Tuesday-Treasure #11

Titel

“And if I asked you to name all the things that you love, how long would it take for you to name yourself?”

It would take me awhile because impulsively a lot of other people and things would come to my mind. I oftentimes forget to love myself and I am rather my worst critic!

That’s why for this week’s Tuesday-Treasure I want to remind myself and you guys to love yourself! Don’t always put other people first! You are worth of being the No.1!

In western societies individualism is the quintessence. Who am I? What do I want to do? But in Chinese society it is important to blend in, to be a part of a functioning nation or group of people. Living well with other people, respecting your parents and ancestors and therefore becoming a good person, are the most important aspects about Confucianism.

Did you ever wonder why Chinese people usually travel in huge groups and everywhere you go, you never see one Chinese person but a group? Confucianism is the answer. They enjoy being in a group. They don’t mind being with a lot of people were we rather travel individually with maximum our family or couple of friends as companions.

I don’t want to go too much in detail about Confucianism at this point. I still have to learn more about it and want to write a separate article about it.

There is something I haven’t shared with you in my Reality of an International / Binational Relationship article.
