Twenty Something: Kamu adalah Kamu

“Dia adalah dia, kamu adalah kamu. Bersyukurlah kamu adalah kamu karena banyak dia yang ingin menjadi kamu.” – AWD

Pagi itu, aku berdiri di teras rumahku menikmati angin yang membelai lembut tubuhku. Matahari tersipu malu bersembunyi di balik awan yang cukup tebal. Aku membentangkan tanganku, menutup mata, dan menghirup udara yang cukup segar. Sejenak, kupikir hidupku sempurna. Aku bersyukur atas apa yang telah kudapatkan selama ini. Namun, ada suara yang berbisik kepadaku, “Kamu puas?” Continue reading “Twenty Something: Kamu adalah Kamu”

Twenty Something: Hampa

Hai, namaku Nick. Aku seorang kutu buku berkacamata dengan gaya berpakaian cukup trendy. Aku bukan seorang yang percaya diri, bukan seorang pemberani, bukan seorang yang tampan, dan bukan seorang yang jenius. Aku menyadari ternyata aku bukan siapa-siapa dan aku pun tidak punya siapa-siapa.

Kalau boleh dikatakan, hidupku sangat hampa. Rasa sepi ini terkadang bangun dari tidurnya dan mulai menggangguku dengan bisikan-bisikannya. Ia selalu meracuniku dengan kalimat-kalimat yang membuatku mempertanyakan kemana semua orang yang menyayangiku, kemana mereka saat kuperlukan?

Do I have any Best Friends ?

“When your best friend loves you, the way they talk about you will be different. You will feel safe and comfortable when you are with him.”

Everyone knows that we, human, are a social being. We need someone to accompany us all our life. There are always some people whom you consider as friends. Moreover from all friends that you have already had, there are several people whom you consider as best friends. You are lucky if you have several best friends, some of us might only have one or two best friends. You can’t regard someone as your best friends that easy. It needs proofs and approval from the other person whom you considered best friends.

Mental & Emotional Corner: Feeling Unneeded and Lost

“You sometimes think you want to disappear, but all you really want is to be found.”

Do you ever feel not needed by your peers? When they are planning a trip to somewhere awesome they just don’t realize that you are there. They never bother to call you. If you are an extroverted person, then maybe you could approach them like it’s nothing, but when you are an introverted person, you will feel separated from them psychologically; like they exclude you from their inner circle indirectly. Like when they are all taking pictures but you are not invited, so you are pretending to be busy all the time. Like when you, yourself, don’t know which circle you are actually belong to and no one give a damn about that. I know how you feel, it hurts.
