Patience is Endless


Plenty of times in your life you might ask: when can I stop being patient?

Is it when I eventually accomplish my dreams? Or is it when I know there is no other way to go? Now I know the answer to that question. It is: never, until you exhale your final breath. Maybe this is not new for you. Or maybe you expect me to answer differently? Well my friend, I think “never” is the correct answer.

At some point, life will treat us unfairly — this is the universal rule. Our narrow perspective will see these unfair:
– we fail after a very hard work or
– we achieve something effortlessly or
– we lose the loved ones or
– we surprisingly are loved by the loved ones.

But as we see the bigger picture, the wider viewpoint, we will realize how life has been moving as it should be. We are merely some small pawns living our life-scripts.

Don’t lose your patience. This is a powerful weapon to survive. Sometimes you are able to keep yourself sit still in silence and swallow your agony. Sometimes you need to stand up and fight for what you think is right or necessary. Both require patience. Both require you to embrace the life that has been given to you.

Yes, patience is endless
(= kesabaran itu nggak ada habisnya).

PS. I am naturally very impatient. Somehow I need to tell this — at least to myself, as a reminder when I am down.
