help

Standard

kata siapa membantu tanpa pamrih itu gampang? i tell you what, it isn’t.

it’s not easy to help someone without wanting anything in return.
kita berpikir dia tidak usah berbuat apa-apa untuk membalas kebaikan kita, cukup ucapkan terima kasih saja sudah cukup
itu dikategorikan membantu tanpa pamrih?
ah, meski hanya sebuah ucapan terima kasih yang sederhana, tetap saja ada yang namanya ekspektasi.
itu namanya minta pamrih.

jadi memang nggak gampang untuk membantu dengan tulus
tanpa mengharap pamrih
tanpa ada ekspektasi apa-apa sebagai balasan, even a simple thank you.

however, everyone has a reason when he/she decides to help someone
mostly because he/she believes that the person deserves to be helped.
i believe someone deserves to be helped
that is why i make this decision

today i realize how hard this is going to be.
even wonder, why on earth i decide to do this at the first place.
i don’t have THAT kind of strength. that kind of capacity. that kind of courage.

but this is something i have decided to do

some friends remind me that everything happens for a reason
i finally got on that bus that night, after almost canceling few hours beforehand
that must be happening for a reason

so ..
is this the reason?
*sigh*

membantu.tanpa.pamrih.
benar-benar sebuah hal yang luar biasa sulit.
