Antara Kata-kata dan Tindakan, Mana yang Lebih Penting?

Posted on: October 1, 2016

Awalnya, gue tipe orang yang meyakini bahwa action speaks louder than words. Percuma banyak janji ini-itu jika tidak ada realisasinya. Percuma bilang sayang jika tidak ada wujud nyatanya. Dan percuma berteori macam-macam jika prakteknya tidak pernah bisa. Tapi akhir-akhir ini, gue malah berpikiran bahwa sebetulnya, kata-kata juga tidak kalah pentingnya dalam membangun suatu hubungan, khususnya, romantic relationship.

Tindakan tanpa kata-kata bisa diartikan macam-macam. Bisa jadi, hanya baik sebagai teman. Siapa yang tahu jika tidak pernah ada kata-kata yang terucap? Tidak ada kata-kata, sama dengan tidak ada janji. Tidak ada komitmen. Bisa dengan mudah disangkal. Bisa dengan mudah berubah tanpa perlu repot-repot ada penjelasan, tanpa perlu ada pertanggungjawaban.

Kata-kata tanpa tindakan sama artinya dengan janji-janji palsu, dan tindakan tanpa ada kata-kata juga bisa sama saja dengan harapan palsu. Gue jadi belajar pentingnya keseimbangan antara lisan dengan tindakan. Kata-kata dengan tindakan melengkapi satu sama lainnya, dan tidak ada yang dapat memberikan rasa aman melebihi kombinasi dari keduanya.

When you really love somebody, tell them, show them, and put your very best effort to make it happen. Be brave enough to commit, be bold enough to say it. On the other side, don’t put your hopes up until it gets real. You may be wrong unless he says it, and he may be wrong unless he shows it with his efforts. 

Jadi? Mana yang lebih penting? Kata-kata atau tindakan? Keduanya sama-sama penting. Kata-kata tidak melulu harus bilang “aku cinta kamu”, tindakan tidak melulu harus datang dengan membawa seikat bunga, bentuknya bisa apa saja, yang penting jelas bentuknya dan bukan sesuatu yang masih harus diterka-terka.

I’ve come to learn that real love is crystal clear. Real love is being said and done. Otherwise, maybe, he’s just not that into you.

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.
