A journey to remember

We’re not the God, Don’t Judge Too Much

Posted on: October 22, 2016

Belum lama ini, gue curi-curi dengar obrolan beberapa orang di meja makan sebelah di salah satu restoran di Kota Kasablanka. Salah satu cewek di kelompok itu bilang begini, “Rumah dia kemalingan pasti karena kurang banyak sedekahnya!”

Gue cukup kaget mendengarnya. Orang kena musibah kok, bukannya bersimpati malah dituduh yang bukan-bukan? Lagipula, dia itu kan bukan Tuhan, maka dari mana dia bisa tahu segala-galanya tentang amal-ibadah temannya itu?

Percakapan mereka mengingatkan gue dengan salah satu teman lama. Saat orang lain tertimpa musibah, dia akan langsung bilang, “Itu karmanya dia karena bla bla bla.” Tapi saat gantian dia sendiri yang sedang punya masalah, dengan entengnya dia cuma bilang, “Kesabaran gue sedang diuji sama Tuhan.”

Memang benar ujian itu ada banyak ‘penyebabnya’. Bisa jadi teguran dari Tuhan, ujian atas kesabaran, dan lain sebagainya. Tapi sekali lagi, bagaimanapun, hanya Tuhan yang Maha Mengetahui, bukan manusia!

Saat kita terkena musibah, entah itu hilangnya harta benda, kehilangan pekerjaan, penyakit, kecelakaan, dan lain sebagainya, tidak ada salahnya kita instropeksi diri. Teguran atas kelalaian kita kah? Balasan karena pernah menyakiti perasaan orang lain kah? Atau memang bisa jadi hanya sekedar ujian kehidupan saja. Toh pada akhirnya, enggak pernah ada manusia yang hidupnya selalu lancar-lancar saja!

Akan tetapi, jika musibah tersebut jatuh menimpa orang yang kita kenal, lebih baik kita bersimpati daripada berkomentar yang hanya akan memperkeruh suasana. Tidak perlu menyebarkan opini yang belum tentu kebenerannya (ini jatuhnya bisa jadi fitnah lho). Tidak usah sibuk menduga-duga karena kita tidak tahu segala-galanya. Jika kita tidak bisa menghibur atau membantu mengurangi beban mereka, maka, sekedar diam saja sudah lebih dari cukup.

Don’t play God. Don’t judge too much.

The beauty of diversity. I'm glad that I met them along my career path at Lazada. Just a little help like this could mean everything to me and The Lens Story. Many thanks! ❤️

#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.
