Be Kind, Even To Those Who Are Not

"Be kind, even to those who are not."

Got the quote from somewhere in Path, and damn love it. Then I remember those rude people, judging, ignoring, badmouthing behind your back, etc. Happened to me back then, and I think I was mature enough that time. Gue selalu bertanya "Apa yang salah sama gue? Why didn't they tell me and I'll explain why later? Kenapa gue nggak boleh jadi orang yang bebas mengekspresikan apa yang gue rasakan? Kenapa gue nggak boleh bebas berkomentar apaaa aja yang terlintas di otak gue? Apa yang salah dengan gue? They don't even know what happened to me, what I've been through!" entah kenapa gue nggak ada perasaan "They did that because they were jealous" mungkin karena gue merasa kayaknya nggak ada yang bisa di iriin dari gue saat itu. Gue jadi orang yang nggak percaya diri, karena selalu bertanya "apakah gue menjijikan kalau kayak gini?" people sometimes doesn't realize what kind of damage that they've just made. Listen people, be careful when you accidentally hurt people, you never know what kind of damage you've just made to others. Apalagi kalau kita masih masa-masa pembentukan jati diri.

Kemudian gue belajar dan menyadari bahwa tidak semua orang punya skill berempati, menerima pendapat, dan mengerti. Yes, it's a skill. Sometimes I thought, if they need me one day, I'll refuse. But turns out, I can't act like that. I don't say that I'm a good person, tapi gue kadang gampang kasian dengan orang lain ketika gue mencoba memposisikan sebagai mereka. 

One day, gue menjadi tokoh antagonisnya. Gue pun berlaku seperti those rude people ke pacar gue. You know those quotes from We Heart It or Tumblr that sounds like "My attitude depends on how you treat me." I prepared myself for that, but my boyfriend is really really really a nice and kind and good person, he never treat me bad after all. I felt so embarassed to him. And since then he taught me indirectly that 'never stop being kind even to those who are not, if there still good things in their heart, they must be feel so bad and embarassed that they ever treat us like shit.'

Besides, doesn't it feel better when you're smile and kind to people? I mean, can't you feel it in your deepest heart how goooood it is? Dan setelah banyak belajar, sumber penyakit itu dari hati. So I think, be kind for your health, for your inner peace, even to those who are not.
