Let’s Forgive Our Friends for Saying All of Those Stupid Stuffs

Posted on: July 19, 2015

Hari ini gue menemukan satu friendship quote yang kemudian menginspirasi gue untuk menulis blog ini. Dikutip dari serial TV A to Z episode 11: “Best friends are the ones who stay supportive even when the other one says something idiotic.”

Hal ini mengingatkan gue kepada orang-orang yang sudah menjadi sahabat gue bertahun-tahun lamanya. What makes them so special? Because they forgive me for saying so many idiotic stuffs all these years!

Misalnya, gue cenderung mengulang pola yang sama tiap kali sedang jatuh cinta. Bingung harus gimana, sibuk mengumpulkan dan menebak ‘pertanda-pertanda’, naik-turun emosi gue yang seolah tidak ada habisnya, dsb dsb. You know… those stupid things that you say and do when you fall in love.

Atau kemudian, curhatan mellow dan lebay-nya gue di saat sedang patah hati. Gue bisa menghabiskan waktu lama hanya untuk mencurahkan hal yang itu-itu saja. Hal-hal yang kalo dipikir sekarang-sekarang ini, “Kenapa dulu gue mesti sampe sebegitunya amat ya?”

I know that all of them sound stupid, boring, wasting time and so on… but my best friends just never push me away. They keep listening and being supportive all the times!

Itu juga sebabnya, saat gantian teman-teman yang sedang punya masalah, gue tidak lantas nge-judge, bersikap sinis, membalas dengan sindiran, apalagi bersikap tidak peduli dengan gue cuekin begitu aja… Gue enggak mau membuat suasana hati mereka malah jadi lebih buruk daripada sebelumnya. I’m just trying to understand… saying stupid things can happen to anyone of us, including the smartest ones.

Makanya kalo menurut gue, sebagai sesama manusia biasa, maklumi saja hal-hal bodoh dan tidak penting yang diucapkan oleh teman-teman kita di saat-saat sulit dalam hidup mereka. Jika tidak ada yang bisa kita bantu, maka sekedar mendengarkan saja sudah lebih dari cukup. Malah sebetulnya kadang-kadang, seseorang itu hanya butuh untuk didengarkan. It’s simply everything they need just to feel better.

Begitu pula soal curhatan teman yang isinya itu-itu saja. Misalnya, mereka sering curhat soal bosnya tapi toh masih saja bekerja di perusahaan yang sama. Atau curhat soal kelakuan pacarnya tapi masih saja pacaran dengan cowok yang sama. Sering mengeluh belum tentu berarti mereka ingin menyerah! Mereka hanya ingin melepas beban guna menguatkan hati untuk tetap bertahan. They want to fix the situation and they need our support as their best friend!

Gue tipe orang yang percaya keakraban pasti akan memunculkan sisi lain dari semua orang yang pernah kita kenal. Jika kita masih belum menemukan sisi ‘unik’ dari seseorang, maka artinya kita belum benar-benar mengenal orang tersebut. Bahkan orang yang paling pendiam dan tertutup sekalipun akan mulai menunjukkan sisi ‘bodohnya’ hanya kepada orang-orang yang mereka percaya.

Makanya kalau menurut gue, jika teman kita mempercayakan kita untuk melihat sisi lain dalam diri mereka, sudah seharusnya kita lebih merasa tersanjung daripada malah merasa terganggu. Atau yang lebih buruk lagi, jangan merasa terganggu dengan kebodohan teman-teman kita tapi malah tetap menuntut mereka untuk bisa mengerti kebodohan kita sendiri. It’s really not fair!

As we all know, living as a grown up is very tough. Yet I am still a believer that a good friend who listens will always make our life easier. And once again, good friends are the ones who stay supportive even when the other one says something idiotic. So guys, let’s forgive our friends for saying something stupid as well as they forgive us for wasting their times for the same silly stuffs. It’s Eid week and it’s perfect chance to forgive each other, isn’t it? 😉

#friends #friendshipgoals #diversity #photography #photooftheday #canon #snapseed #thelenstory Find someone who loves you properly.
The one who never intentionally let you wait for him.
The one who never makes you have to wonder how he truly feels about you.
The one who will definitely catch you and hold you tight as you fall for him.
The one who gives you all he has to be a better man, to fix what goes wrong, to fight for you and to never let you go.
You are too old for another Mr. Wrong, reward yourself with the right one.
Love yourself enough to leave your past, you deserve better.

#love #life #quote #photography #photooftheday #thelenstory I'm not perfect. I make mistakes. I do the things I'm not proud of. I give up, sometimes. I hurt people, mostly the ones that I actually care about. I have a lot of flaws, but at least, I'm trying hard to be a better person. I'm no saint nor angel, but I'm not a pure evil either. I'm simply a human who is trying to be the very best that I can be. I'll never stop learning, until my very last breath.
