Recently I had an argument with my future brother in law. It started when he asked me what I wanna work as, accountant ke, auditor ke, apa ke. I told him I don't know and I don't wanna think about it yet. I wanna rest first, thats all I care for now.
He went on saying that corporate finance is really good. It is very easy to make money yadida yadida. Honestly, I listen for the sake of listening. Tak interested langsung pun but yela. Me being myself, I always put others before myself. Pastu dia suruh I work with the big four companies of accounting. Sejujurnya, I don't really care if I work in a big firm or a small one, it doesn't really matter as long as I gain experience and I don't see why I need to stress myself up even more.
Then he said I'm premature. Immature. That really did it. He definitely pressed the wrong button.
First of all, as clearly as I can remember, I never ask for your opinion on what I should do or what I should think. Never. So I would prefer you keep your master brilliant suggestion to yourself. Don't trouble yourself getting into my business. Don't tell me how to live my life. It's mine. I decide if you deserve to be in it or not.
Second of all, don't you dare say I'm premature or immature. Our difference probably go by our age only. Besides that, I'm sure there are other things that I'm way ahead of you. I don't need you to lecture me on desire or needs. If you say it's impossible to achieve, then why did someone managed to write about desire and needs in a book? Don't lecture me about money, yes, I won't argue the fact that money is power but money is not everything. There must be more to life.
Thirdly, please please please know that not everybody sees the world like you do. Each of us ada hak masing-masing untuk melihat dunia dari pandangan yang berbeza. If I hold a ball in between us, the pattern of the ball doesnt mean it should be the same as your side even though the ball has the same round shape. Get me? Although we're looking or pointing at the same topic but our views may differ.
As long as those views does not crosses the line of yours then by all means, respect it.
Respect the differences.
