His post came right in time for International Day for Failure, which falls on Oct 13. It’s a day when “people are encouraged to throw away the shame associated with failing, whether the failure is personal or professional,” according to mental health advocacy Calm Collective Asia. Hence, the hashtag.

The Sengkang MP wrote that when his girlfriend broke up with him, it was “one of the darkest moments” in his life.

It had been a five-year relationship where he had considered the woman as the person that he “was destined to marry,” and the break-up was devastating.

At that time he was about to start the dissertation for his PhD, but heartbreak left him unable to do so.

“It is said that it takes at least an extra month to get over every additional year of being with someone. So I was due for around half a year of pain and anguish.

Although I was supposed to launch right into my research, it became impossible; any extended time of pondering led me to dwell on the lost relationship.”

Assoc Prof Lim described his heartbreak this way:

“Broken relationships aren’t an uncommon experience for most people. Still, it was a very rough time for me. My faith was challenged, and I found little comfort in the distractions that I had set up for myself.

My studies seemed to be meaningless, and I even started to blame the failure of our relationship on the fact that I had chosen to study abroad. I spent a lot of time alone, floating in a mental haze: going for long walks in the woods, listening to sappy jazz songs about breakup, nursing drinks till closing on Sunday night at the bar.”

However, right around the six-month mark, things got better. He writes that he learned to calm down and regain inner peace, as well as be on his own.

“I learned to be comfortable in solitude, rather than sad. I found the release that allowed me to enjoy solo hikes, rainy day jazz, and lonely drinks. The failed relationship taught me how to find myself again.”

The question is can Jamus redefine Singapore's politics or is he going to be just all talk and no-action?

He is basically calling out sinkiebu for being pus*y itchy cannot stay faithful to LDR, and praising his own skills to land AMDK waifu…

He has a bigger balls to represent wp than pap. By joining wp, he probably lose opportunities by being part of pap community. FYI, he was also a good candidate for pap before joining wp. He was invited to talk prior joining politics. He's clear in his position to defend below income group and pap took that credit to introduce min wage after that. Better than you jjww, but secretly endorse pap.

You have so much pap to target from lhl to tpl. Never see you target anyone from pap group.

I think pap want him in stat board or gic one.....

But his advocation for min wage just drifted him from pap.

End up join wp....
