A month ago, I had a reunion with my alumni from the college. They are my friends, and we had a little conversation about our job, our status, our future, and some other stuff. We had a drink in a small cafe that only consists of few people. And there are fives of us, some of my friends can't make it because they were all busy with their own commitment.
So, we talked about our life, it was awkward because they all had their own way of living. And if I had to rank on our progress, I'd be the lowest among them. Honestly, I was so immersed in their stories, how much hard work they put into their dream. Some of them were having a hard life but they able to go through that process.
To compare their stories with my life, and how far they went is something that I can not imagine. For a moment I felt that my life sucked, and I was far behind everyone. But the truth is, there are also some people that had a hard time but never complained about it but still can make it.
At that moment, I realize that I should never complain about what I'm not being able to achieve. Instead of complaining I should have put more hard work into it and try my best to develop it. I know it would be a hard process but seeing all my friends that being able to fight that obstacle, I told myself that I can make it too.
It is a struggle in life especially when you had to confront all the people who think that you might not make it through. I tried my best to confront all of my fears. However, it takes so much courage and patience. Sometimes I had to give up because I just not that strong.
Little that I know, being in that situation actually build yourself and change how you think, how you change that situation into something that fires up your spirit. If only if I push myself and do something that I am good at, it will be okay.
We are living in this world not based on what people define us. But it's true, everybody can judge us but not everybody can let our guard down. Even though we felt like we are falling behind, and people see us as no future at all, remember you just need time to develop and you are still progressing.
Nevertheless, if we still not see any progress in life, give it time for ourselves. Our time will come soon, but in the meantime, enjoy the progress.
