The following is an excerpt from the Chinese article “I’m Changing! “
The author is Ma Hui, part-time editor-in-chief of Tsinghua Press:

” A friend of mine is nearly sixty years old, and I asked him how he had changed. He replied:

  1. I’m changing! I used to love my parents, my brothers, my spouse, my children, my friends, but now I love myself.
  2. I’m changing. I learned that I am not God, and I cannot carry the world.
  3. I’m changing. I stopped bargaining with market vendors. Paying a little bit more has little effect on me, and could help these people save their children.
  4. I am changing. When I pay the taxi fare, I no longer wait for the driver to find change, and giving him a tip may get a smile. After all, he works much harder than I do to earn a living.
  5. I’m changing. I no longer said to the old man, “you have told this story many times.” After all, this story helps them relive memories and revisit past events.
  6. I am changing. I learned to not correct others, even if they are wrong. After all, it is not my responsibility to make everyone perfect. Making things peaceful and enjoyable is worth cherishing.
  7. I am changing. I praise my friends generously. This not only makes the other party’s mood better but also benefits ourselves.
  8. I’m changing. I learned not to worry about creases or spots on my shirt. After all, personality is better than appearance.
  9. I’m changing. I stay away from people who despise me because they don’t understand my value.
  10. I’m changing. I learned not to ruin my friendships by sticking to my guns. After all, the joy alone is not as good as the joy of all.
  11. I’m changing. I learn to live each day as if it was my last day. After all, one day will be my last day.
  12. I’m changing. I am doing what makes me happy. I deserve to make myself happy. It is my responsibility to myself. “

Comment: Often, people put others before themselves, and they overlook their own wellbeing. If we don’t love ourselves, how can we love others?

我正在改変》
清華出版社兼職總編 馬慧:
有位朋有近或六十歲,我問他有何改變?
他回答說:

1.我正在改變!以前我愛父母、兄弟、配偶、孩子、朋友,但現在我已開始愛我自己 。
2.我正在改變。我瞭解到,我不是上帝,我扛不起整個世界。
3.我正在改變。我不再跟賣菜和賣水果的小販討價還價。多付一奌錢對我沒什麼影響,但有可能幫這些人存下他兒女的學費。
4.我正在改變。付計程車費時我不再等著司機找零錢,給他點小費或許會換來一個微笑。畢竟他爲了生計比我辛苦多了。
5.我正在改變。我不再對老人說,「這個故事你已講很多次了」。 畢竟這個故事讓他們重拾回憶,重溫往事。
6.我正在改變。我學會了不再糾正別人,即使是他們有錯。畢竟,讓每個人完美,不是我的責任。能讓事情平和愉快更值得珍惜。
7.我正在改變。我大方地給予讚美。這不僅讓對方心情變好,自己也受益。
8.我正在改變。我學會了不要爲襯衫上的摺痕或斑點煩惱。畢竟,人格勝於外表。
9.我正在改變。我遠離那些看不起我的人,因爲他們不懂我的價值。
10.我正在改變。我學會不要爲堅持己見而破壞了朋友關係。畢竟,獨樂樂不如衆樂樂。
11.我正在改變。我學會把每一天當成最後一天。畢竟,真的有一天會是最後一天。
12.我正在改變。我正在做使自己快樂的事,我應該讓自己快樂,這是我對自己最應負的責任。
