Our assumptions are wrong spectacles
Clothing this in mind and eyes
Will lead to wrong conclusions and actions
Disastrous consequences will destroy ourselves ultimately

Being too emotional as a mother when my son misbehaves, unexpectedly, he enjoys irritating me. Sometimes, I locked myself in the bathroom to cry after the struggle ends. After I calm down, I realised that humans are emotional being. EB acronym is produced. Inserting letter B will be EBB. Pondering about it, lead me to a picture. Picture came into my mind of a person being blown by an explosion. It is a movie that I watched before. Afterward, the movie showed that the person disappeared. Thank God it is not gross. According to the dictionary, ebb means
- The flowing back of the tide as the water returns to the sea (opposed to flood, flow)
- A flowing backward or away; decline or decay: the ebb of a once great nation.
- A point of decline: His fortunes were at a low ebb.
- To flow back or away, as the water of a tide ( opposed to flow )
- To decline or decay; fade away: His life is gradually ebbing.
Upon pondering this word, “emotion”, emotion tends to get the better of me too. It can be disastrous if depend it as compass. Let me share my bad experience into a learning experience.
Excited to get the first illustration project, I willingly accept it when my mom and brother disagreed. They disagreed to accept from my relative whom I felt close during young times. But she flew overseas to further her studies and no contact with her for 12 years and returned. Willingly, I emailed her the sketches. Upon knowing my price
though half lower than the market price, she told me she didn’t want to continue it. Regrets crushed me to know her true mask. If I know, I should believe my mom and brother. Afterward, my sister did mention of my relative character. Before I didn’t believe my relative is a cunning person. Now, it is a hard truth for me. Gulp. Like a hard stone in my throat and I was depressed. Obviously, I wore the wrong spectacle back then. Though no contact now and without her apology, I feel sad to lose such relationship. My dad also dislikes this relative. Then I realised those freelance artists will request for 50% deposit for the charged amount. I feel that I’m like a fool. Thank God that the second client introduced from a friend is approved by my family and completed the project.
