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.

We can’t control whatever life throws at us, but we definitely can control our reaction toward anything that can possibly happen to us.
It’s our decision whether or not we set ourselves free from miseries.
It’s our action that makes our life either colorful or plain boring.
It’s our behavior that leads us to feel merry or lonely.
And it’s certainly our own choices that bring us happiness in life.
Life is too short to be lonely, unhappy, and to be less proud of who we are.
Make the most of every day in your life, be happy with the little and the big things, make your life not only worth living, but also worth to celebrate!
You tell this to yourself, “Happiness starts now!” I’ve been working as a pre-wedding conceptor in past couple of months and I really enjoy seeing how two people so much in love with each other.
With that being said, instead of rushing myself to my own wedding, I’d rather tell myself to take my time. I want my wedding to be a lifetime event, I want this to be something worth fighting for, and for that, I need the right man who also shares the same wishes as mine.
I still have to find someone who clearly tells me what he wants, the one who never makes me have to wonder where he stands, the one who will certainly catch me when I fall. And maybe, it takes times until I find him. But that’s okay! Good things take times, do they? Either you are my friend, enemy, or just somebody I know. The choice is yours.
