When I Care About You, I Will Try to Correct You

Posted on: April 1, 2017

This morning, I read this one lovely quote by Abdulbary Yahya on Instagram, “Those who love us will correct us.”

And it reminds me of myself… That’s exactly what I always do to the people whom I care about: I try to correct them. It’s not because I feel like I’m always right, it’s just because I do care about these people.

When it looks like they’re making mistakes, I’ll tell them; right on their faces. I won’t just stay quiet and watch them drown. It just doesn’t feel right.

When I want to keep them as a part of my life, I’ll tell them how I feel about them. And that includes when I’m hurt, disappointed, and angry. I tell it all hoping that we’re both aware that we’ve got to find a way to make things right.

I correct them because I want them to be a better one. I want them to be prouder of themselves by doing the right things. I want them to be happier with being the very best version of themselves. I might be wrong, everyone can be wrong, but at least, I make time to give it a try because I want what’s best for them.

I know that I don’t always put the words nicely. I know that the way I take care of someone can seem so tough. But again, if I have to try that hard just to tell you the words, if I still manage to correct you in that kind of tough situation, then that’s just another sign how I really care about your life. I put all that great efforts just for you, not myself. It’s a sign that in that very moment, I think of you more than I think of my own sake.

The truth is, love is not always pretty.

Love between two lovers is not always a beautiful romance. Love is not merely the flowers and candle light dinners.

Love between the families is not only the warmth of a home, but also the tough love to make each other better and wiser.

Love between two best friends is not always a laughter and joy. If you’re always happy with your friendship with them, then probably, you’re not close enough with them.

So again, if I’m willing to fight all those ugly moments just to remind you to do the right things, then I only do that because I truly care about your life. Otherwise, why would I bother to multiply my life problems by picking a fight just to correct you?

So yes, when I care about you, I will try to correct you. And that’s not going to change.

Life took me to many unimaginable people. The super kind, the selfless, the brave men, and of course, the mean and rude people, cheaters, liars, hypocrites, extremely arrogant, and all other qualities that got me thinking, “I never thought such people like these do exist!”
But I’ve also come to learn that sometimes, there is a bright side of the darkest people I know. They’re not always good, but they’re not always bad either.
At the end of the day, it helps me to define the people I can bear and the people I can’t stand. And most importantly, it helps me to decide the person I would like to become. 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!
