3 People I Thank in Life

Posted on: June 4, 2016

Yesterday was really a good day to me. It made me look  back to my past and I felt really grateful for everything that I had been through. And it just hit me… Maybe, I would never get that far without many people who helped me to make it happen!

It’s not only about the people who helped me to succeed my career by the way. It’s also about the people who made me a better and happier person! It’s about the people who helped me to live the life I always wanted!

From all those people, I think I can narrow them down to 3 categories only. So here they are! Three people that I really want to say thank you just for being a part, even just a very small one, in my life path.

People who tell me the truth

Good thing or bad thing, it’s always important to me to hear the truth.

When people genuinely says good thing about me, it always makes me put more belief in myself. It makes me more confident for who I am and it really helps me to find me. Sometimes, all that rough things in life tend to make me incapable to see the good things in myself. It really feels good to have someone who reminds me that I’m not that bad. Not at all.

On the other side, when people says unpleasant truth about me, of course I will get hurt, I may get angry for a while, but then I will ask myself, “Is that true? And if it’s true, what can I do about it?” At the end of the day, critics (the TRUE ones) also help me to become a better person! And I really appreciate the people who tell me that because I know it’s not an easy thing to have courage just to tell me that ugly truth. So thank you for being real!

People who believe in me

I used to be very insecure about myself. I doubted if I could do what I wanted to do. But then I met many people in my life who changed that.

A puppy love who brought out the very best in me.

A friend who encouraged me to do the ‘unimaginable’.

A lecture who told me I would go far in my career.

A boss who convinced me that I could be a good manager even though I was only 25.

And many other bosses who pushed me to take chances (and also gave me all those chances) at work.

They can be very demanding. Very pushy. Very annoying sometimes. They could be so honest it hurt. But they did all that because they had a huge belief in me. They wanted all the best for my own life!  It’s very heartwarming that they believe in me a lot more than I do in myself!

But did you know? After I finally conquered it all, I realized all that I conquered was actually just me. The greatest barrier I had to deal with was my self-doubt, fears, and insecurities. I’m glad that I met the people who helped me to deal with it. So thank you, thank you, and thank you!

People who underestimate me

There was a reason why I could be so insecure when I was younger.

The people who told me that I was ugly and stupid.

The people who laughed at my dreams…

And the people who said they were sorry that I would never ever make it in life.

It’s not that they are my number one motivation or something like that, it’s just that they have made all my victories felt even merrier! Knowing that I’ve proved them wrong always make me feel good about myself. They may never know that they were wrong, but who cares? That self-satisfaction is all that I need! So for all those people, thanks for saying all that awful stuffs! At least, you have really given me a good story to tell, hehehehe.

I’m not a funny person. I’m not good at mingle with random people. I’m fierce, I’m a straight-talker, I get annoyed easily, and I have this resting b face that makes me look angry all the times. I’m not that kind of person whom people would miss when I’m not around.
But you know what?
I’m okay with all that flaws I have in me. Nobody is perfect, and neither am I. At the same time; everyone on earth is special, and so am I.
I know my worth. I know what I’m very good at. I know what I want and I work hard to make it happen. I’m a go getter and I fight my battles. I’m not an angel, but I’m not a devil either.
I was born to be the very best of myself, and just because I don’t always have what others have, it doens’t make me less as a person inside out. I’m whole just the way I am, and I’m beyond grateful of all that. I know that my career has been a bit of trouble for my personal life. I admit that it feels like a loss to me sometimes, but you know what? I don’t feel sorry about all that, not a even just a little bit.
My career has given me a comfort bed to sleep, taken me to the places I’ve never seen, brought me to the incredible people who end up as my best friends, and most importantly, it has really made my parents proud. I can sleep tight at night knowing that at least, I can support my parents after their retirements.
The way I see it, there’s nothing bad about all that, so why should anybody in my position feel sorry and less proud about their own hard works?
Don’t let anybody make you feel less than who you are. Make yourself and your loved ones proud, and for me, the rest doesn’t matter at all.
Be great, women! Whatever you choose to do for your own life, be great at it and don’t feel sorry for anything good in your life! Happy International Women’s day and stay awesome! My life has been going great in the past one month. Incredibly busy, but I can’t be happier.
I work my new job during the weekdays and work on my own start-up all over the weekends. It’s tiring and consuming all my energies, but it never feels like a hard work somehow.
I meet many people who are super friendly, I get to work with new challenges that test me every single thing I’ve learned in my entire career, and at the same times, I still manage to pursue my lifetime dream! For the first time ever, I understand how it feels like to love what I do that I never have to work a day in my life.
God, thank YOU for all these blessings! I often said I couldn’t ask for more, yet again, You gave me more and more reasons to be thankful over and over. I’m beyond blessed! Alhamdulillah.
