To Cry Wolf

According to Wikipedia:
The tale concerns a shepherd boy who repeatedly tricks nearby villagers into thinking a wolf is attacking his flock. When a wolf actually does appear, the villagers do not believe the boy's cries for help, and the flock is destroyed. The moral at the end of the story shows that this is how liars are not rewarded: even if they tell the truth, no one believes them...

I am in a situation where I am the tricked villager. I’ve been tricked and tricked and lied to and manipulated so many, many times. It is my own fault that I’ve never approach this one particular person (TOPP) with this habit face to face. Back then, someone who is very close to TOPP once told me, my honesty might break and hurt TOPP. I regretted listening to that someone because that someone had only known TOPP for like 2-3 years. I’ve known TOPP from way back and I used to spend so much time with TOPP more than TOPP’s close friends and I know the changes in TOPP’s personality. Not even TOPP’s close friends realized the truth behind the many tales that had been spun.

Out of love and respect, I keep quiet. I stood behind TOPP even when most of the people were questioning about TOPP’s behaviour and had doubts about TOPP’s credibility.

Since I am learning to be the bigger person and for old time’s sake, I’ve longed forgive TOPP’s verbal abuse and stuffs TOPP did to me. Oh yes, there are so many things TOPP thought I didn’t know but I actually found out in the end. Allah Is Great.

But I can’t take TOPP’s lying anymore. So whenever I encountered another fishy tale from TOPP, I reacted without thinking first. Something I am not proud of.

But hey, if you are above all this and my outburst had nothing to do with you, why did you flipped out that way? Do you think you’ve done enough goodness to some people that entitled you to call some people animal and announcing that some people is defying Allah’s grants? Have you look at the mirror lately? Are you in a good relationship with God?

Orang baik-baik tidak akan sesekali mengungkit.

I found this from FB status, I would like to write this as a reminder for myself. I am talking to myself first and foremost. I never claimed to be better.

Siapa yang menanam dialah yang akan menuai.....
Disetiap perbuatan pasti ada balasannya.......
Apa yang dialami saat ini mungkin hasil dari masa lampau...
Dan apa yang kamu perbuat saat ini akan mendapatkan hasil di masa depan...
Baik dan buruknya hasil yang akan didapatkan tergantung dari apa yang kamu perbuat saat ini

Remember, I never claimed to be better :)
