At the End of the Day, the Right Person Will Stay

Posted on: April 15, 2017

Pernah berandai-andai seharusnya kita tidak begini dan tidak begitu supaya beberapa orang tertentu tetap tinggal dalam hidup kita? Gue pernah. Sempat beberapa kali menyalahkan diri sendiri atas kehilangan gue itu. Sampai suatu hari, jawaban seorang teman seperti membuat gue melihat sisi lain dari masalah yang gue hadapi.

Waktu itu gue bilang begini, “Kalau waktu itu gue enggak kasih dia promotion, dia enggak akan stres sampai akhirnya malah resign.

Teman gue ini malah menjawab, “Gue rasa enggak juga. Sifatnya dia emang udah begitu. Enggak promote juga dia akan tetap resign. Akan ada aja alasan lain buat dia resign.”

Percakapan hari itu mengingatkan gue dengan kehilangan-kehilangan lain yang pernah gue hadapi. Setelah gue pikir-pikir, gue mulai menemukan benang merahnya. Sehingga pada akhirnya gue berkesimpulan… Kita bisa kehilangan seseorang karena dua hal; untuk memberikan kita pelajaran, atau untuk membuat kita menghargai orang-orang yang tetap tinggal.

Memang benar bahwa bisa jadi, kita harus berusaha instropeksi diri setiap kali ada seseorang yang memutuskan untuk pergi. Bisa jadi itu memang salah kita sehingga siapapun orangnya tidak akan pernah bisa tahan dengan perangai kita, tapi bisa jadi juga, mereka hanya bukan orang yang tepat. Dengan orang yang salah, sebaik apapun kita berusaha tidak akan pernah cukup untuk membuat mereka tetap tinggal. Jika sudah demikian, kehilangan mereka pada dasarnya hanya mengajarkan kita rasa syukur dan apresiasi kepada orang-orang yang tetap tinggal.

Dalam konteks apapun, bisa dalam hal pekerjaan, pertemanan, bahkan percintaan, apapun yang terjadi, orang yang tepat akan tetap berusaha untuk tinggal. Mau dicari sampai ke manapun, tetap tidak akan pernah ada orang yang sempurna. Bedanya, orang yang tepat adalah orang yang tetap bertahan serta tetap berusaha untuk mengatasi ketidaksempurnaan itu.

Boleh instropeksi diri, tapi jangan terlalu keras pada diri sendiri. Hargai diri kita sendiri karena setidaknya, kita adalah salah satu orang yang tidak pernah menyerah terhadap diri kita sendiri.

Once again I’m telling you… the rest of the world may give up on you, but never ever giving up on yourself. So long you keep believing in yourself, you’re on the right way.

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!
