I was reading an account of a young woman who said, among other things, that she was currently residing in a land where all the people there spoke "perfect English".
Where is that land would be?
There is no land in this world where the people there speak perfect English.
Not even England.
The same thing goes for the Malay language.
There is no land in this world where all the people there speak perfect Malay.
Not even Malaysia.
It was not long before I came to a conclusion that she was indirectly insinuating that she was currently living in the land of the English...England.
England, for centuries, has been associated with a high-status society.
So this woman wanted to be associated with that.
Some people have this insecurity within themselves that they need outside influence to further elevate their status.
Some do it for ego, while some do it for attention.
Some need other people's approval before doing or deciding to do something.
A black pen will still be a black pen, even though a thousand other people say it is a blue pen.
Have faith in your own ability. And stay true to yourself.
