I got that picture above from my friend’s post on tumblr. See it try to tells us that everybody’s awesome. but I won’t discuss it. What I want to share is “comparing our self to others”.
Have you ever feel like you’re just nobody, anything you’ve done is nothing but a nonsense -comparing with what other people around you’ve done and thought that they’re so damn amazing? Well, if the answer is “yes”, then we’re in the same way. for a long time, for me, believing that I am (our self) amazing is is just an amazing theory. I frequently insecure for every single thing that related to my self -especially my ability. this bad feeling getting worse when many superb people around me. I envy them I can’t deny. so I tried to be like them. I learned anything that (I wish) could change my self being as superb as them. but I FAILED. and poor me, what I’ve got is not an awesomeness but losing my way.😦
I lost my time just for searching the way I could be the awesome one. until I read a book by Tere Liye, “Berjuta Rasanya”, I realized that if everybody is awesome -like others-, then the ‘awesome’ itself wouldn’t be exist. would it?😉
Note that you -the awesome people- are awesome because of the “cupu”. If “the cupu” -like me- doesn’t exist, then there are no parameter that determine whether you’re awesome or not. so, you’re not allowed to arrogant :p
back to the topic, finally, I decided to be my self, doing whatever I love to -as long as it doesn’t break any norm- and believe that everybody is special. Allah also said in the holy qur’an:
– “And We didn’t create the sky and the earth and what’s in them for nothing”,
See, we’re created for something. Though we’re not special, at least we could be the helpful one. Insha Allah🙂
