Menulis tentang Indonesia adalah satu hal yang tanpa saya sadari sudah berulang kali saya lakukan. Dari tugas-tugas bahasa Indonesia, esai kompetisi, beberapa naskah pidato, atau sekadar selingan blog. Nyatanya, esai pertama saya adalah tentang kemerdekaan Indonesia, yang saya tulis ketika kelas 4 SD dan masih ada wujudnya sampai sekarang. Esai itu, hingga tulisan-tulisan berikutnya tentang Indonesia semasa saya kuliah, jika dibariskan akan seperti gradasi yang menggambarkan sejauh mana saya memahami dan memaknai Indonesia. Dari bocah naif yang ingin mengubah Indonesia, sampai remaja realistis yang mencari tahu –dan kini sudah tahu, di mana porsi mungil tempat dia bisa berkontribusi untuk Indonesia.

There’s a chance you are having problems lately, or at some point in your life, that you think it was the worst part of your life. It can come in many ways; whether it was a broken heart, betrayals, family problems, financial problems, schools, works, friendships, relationships, or any failures that dragged your mental down. I want to let you know that you are not alone. Just like everybody else that was once had to deal with setbacks, it also came to me.

It was last year; and the fact that I just write this today, is because I DO need that much time to recover. I didn’t heal fast when my longtime friend(s) backstabbed me and I lost everything. Not even when I likely had tried everything, visited many places, and met with new people; there was still part of me that still lost in limbo and couldn’t live the same life after. My life had turned upside down, and I was stuck, not knowing what to do.

Until I found a cure, lessons, that came from an unlikely source –a philosophy of more than 2 millennia old, practiced by them who’s called Stoics. The same philosophy that accompanied Nelson Mandela in his 27 years imprisonment, guiding and comforting him until his eventual victory of fights against racial inequality in South Africa .

This writing is about that lessons.

Hari sebelumnya, saya datang ke wisuda senior saya dari FEB. Acara berlalu seperti biasanya kita merayakan wisuda teman baik: menunggu wisudawan keluar, berdesak-desakan mencari satu sama lain, seserahan buket bunga atau kado, foto-foto di sudut ikonik kampus, lalu ditutup dengan makan bareng kemudian pulang.

Yang saya tidak tahu adalah, ternyata di wisuda yang sama hadir teman saya sewaktu masih di Malang. Sama sekali tak pernah dekat, bahkan selama 4 tahun terakhir tak sekalipun berkabar, tapi sempat tergabung di satu forum diskusi yang sama. Agak kaget waktu malam harinya saya lihat di WhatsApp Story, kami sama-sama mengunggah foto dengan lokasi yang sama di lapangan Rotunda dengan latar belakang rektorat UI. Ternyata dia datang untuk wisuda temannya yang juga dari FEB, tapi berbeda jurusan.

Singkat cerita setelah meng-update kabar satu sama lain, kami mengagendakan bertemu untuk cerita lebih panjang.
