One that knows your suffering

 Jogjakarta, 29th January 2016

We’re in a car. About to go get a dinner. 3 guys, talking about bits and pieces of life. Then comes the inevitable : stories about romance, about love life. In the end someone said “The best partner is someone that’s with us in our times of struggle”

I’m in a porch. Scrolling through Instagram. Stumble upon a quote : “Who are you when you have nothing?”

I stopped. It got me thinking.


“Who am I when I was nothing?” and “Who would I become when I have everything?”

I can’t answer that question. The answer should come from someone else. Someone that knows me when I’m still nothing, watches me when I’m struggling, and still with me when I’ve reached the goal.

I always believe that life has some stages, and each person has different stages than the others. Usually, every stage has its own suffering moments. And the pressure that comes from the sufferings shape us into who we are. Having someone besides you when that moment arrives will change the way you handle those pressures. Perhaps that’s why we can’t hate some people, no matter what happened. Maybe because they’re there at our weakest moments. Because they changed the way we react to pressure. Because they helped us through our moment of suffering. Because they’re a part of us. 


And maybe that’s why the best partner is the one besides us in our times of struggle. 

Because they complete us.

One that knows your suffering
