Balancing the Unbalanced

It has been a while since I've been ranting here, actually there is so many things in my mind to be vomited out, but just can't get started (mainly due to laziness and sensitive people around me - you know what I mean).

Well, someone been telling that my blog has gone boring, and I'm surprise that my blog was even interesting before to begin with :) Sorry I've let some of the reader down but I'll try do my best to compensate what's been lost in my blog ya.

Well that was a long introduction, let me get into the main title now...

I'm sure many many of us has been running into this question of balancing, between achievements and friendship. One of the typical example is that doing something that people around you don't usually do, and performing better. Don't understand? What I mean is being more hardworking than rest of the people.

What's the problem with that? Big problem.

You see, from what I experienced is that achievement and friendship are enemy that fights to the death, for most of the cases except some special one. Higher the achievement, greater solitude you get.

Still don't get it? Well people tends to stay in a group with the same level, you climb too high people isolate you. This does not only apply to my current university life, but I'm sure it is more "severe" in working life.

You did too well, people say you're cocky, your did on normal peace, your heart tells you that "you could do better than that", which you could, and you feel suppressed because of keeping in peace with others.

So, you might ended up as a cocky person (said by other people), or just-another-random-normal-person. I don't like both result, and therefore keeping the balance between the two. Being humble with great achievements is totally a lie, nobody can achieve that (I'm quite sure of that).

Life's hard, and it reminds me an old quote of mine - To wish life to be fair, you better wait for earth to be square.
