For you who is following my twitter account and or be my friends on facebook, might have read me wrote this phrase in these accounts “everybody always be somebody’s somebody“. You might see it as redundancy, but I don’t. Because I added some phrases before that quote on twitter, and I put that certain quote as a photo caption on facebook. This photo below.
I write the same quote again, here on wordpress, to give you more details, why did I write that quote in the first place. Because that’s what we do in blog, right? To enlighten readers about things that we can’t write on limited spaces like in twitter.
That photo was taken sometime in 1991 , at Cipto Mangun Kusumo Hospital, Jakarta. You couldn’t see it on the picture, but it was my grandma’s room in the hospital. She was a terminal cancer patient and we were visiting her. Looking at that photo is making me sad, not only because it will certainly makes me miss my lovely grandma alot, but also reminds me of my aunt’s former husband.
Yes, you read it correctly. Former. Husband. My aunt divorced at about 8 years ago. One of their kid is my cousin that I told to you at here.
I didn’t realize it at the first time. But there was him, former husband of my aunt, at that photo, almost 20 years ago, when my grandma was still alive. Oh I really couldn’t understand it. He’d known my big family for so long, yet he betrayed my aunt. But I’m not gonna talk about the betrayal right now.
The third thing that disturbing my mind is another reminder that this former husband of my aunt was (oh I don’t know if he still is) a friend of my uncle’s wife. Yeah! The wife of my uncle is the one who introduced the former husband to my aunt. Can you see how complicated it was when the divorce took place?
Even if there’s no longer connection between the former husband and my aunt, but he is still the father of my aunt’s kids. He was (or is) also a friend of my aunt’s sister-in-law. He is somebody to somebody out there.
And who says we’re alone in this world? We’re social creatures that are connected to anyone else. Everybody always be somebody’s somebody. So we must be really careful on what we do, if we don’t want to ruin anybody else’s life, let alone ours.
Shoot. I’m still learning alot.
