Originally on my instagram:

. Sometimes the people around you won’t understand your journey. They don’t have to, it’s not for them. – Joubert Botha. This resonates to me in a way because the past weeks (and still until now) I’m working on big thing in my life in so very short deadline that creeping closer each day. Some days I vent to some colleagues to brainstorm some thing, yes, the burden is a bit lighter knowing that I am not the only one struggling for the same goal. But some of them laugh because they tell me that I have it easy, that I haven’t suffer worse than this. This made me sad a little. I know I didn’t have it worse (of life), but that doesn’t mean I have it easy either. People is having their own different battle, & you should not compare at the first place. Well.. I’m not mad at them, not one bit. Just a little bit discouraged. Because they don’t know me well enough. They don’t know what kind of downs I ever had, so much, that I don’t want to go back to the way it was. And I don’t think they need to know. I appreciate their opinion, it’s just.. I won’t take that as a whole. So I just smile. Sometimes the people around you won’t understand your journey. They don’t have to, it’s not for them. I am just glad behind those banters, they still pray and wish the very best will come. That is important; they maybe will never understand my journey but they still wish the best for me. So, plus one for us. So yah, A tiny reminder that if people tell you things, or predict what will happen to you – they are telling their stories. It’s not yours. So whatever that is you’re working on, keep on the hustle / battle. You know, as long as it’s a good battle. – #typography #lettering #quote #moleskine #doodle #vscocam #handlettering
