Page 96: "It"

/ Wednesday, October 5, 2011 /

A friend of us once wrote,

“Hidup tidak minta banyak. Hanya minta kita menjalaninya dari senja ke senja. Dari satu malam, ke malam berikutnya”

("Life is not asking much. Just demand us to live from dusk to dusk.  Walk through one night, to the other night")

You* might call it restless. I used to called it, just “it”. That shitty feeling, when a lot of things and people surround caused uneasy inside.

You’re probably just miss your close male friends, or because of that job which you hate so much, or because of this city.

I’ve been there. “It” was in me at the past. Probably it’s still in me, just hiatus and waiting to return. And I don’t know how I can make you feel better with this post. I don’t even know if “better” is the right word. Because the way people handling burden behind their back are different. But I want you to know that – damn it’s cheesy but I’m gonna say it anyway – I’ll always be around to listening when you need to complain and whining. It’s not really OK since I learned a little piece about zen from you – because there were days when you’ve mentioned it over and over :p – but most of the times, people learn and re-learn about “let go let flow” from stuff like this.

Because yeah, life does not ask for much. We were the one who had this anxiety, sometimes a bit too much...

a close friend of mine, you know who you are. i think...

Hahaaa...
I still hate people. And still think I have 3 friends here. Well, 5 if you add sukma and alda.
But I'll get better, all will be well again.
Anyway, yeah. All will be well again.

true..:)
kadang kita menuntut terlalu banyak, berpikir terlalu keras, tidak sabar. kepada sekitar dan (terutama) diri sendiri. padahal biasanya yang dibutuhkan hanya bernafas dan menjalaninya. :)

@nike: yep! but sometimes there's a "devil" within whispered "there's something wrong with your life, dude" yet we couldn't find the answer when somebody ask what the hell is wrong... damn it, huh? :))
