“Seperti kacang lupakan kulit” is probably one of the worst idiom someone can utter to another. Unfortunately in the world today, there are many who strive so hard to succeed, yet they’d forget those who had helped them in the past. It’s a sad reality, because once they succeed, they’d often forget these people’s existence.
In a recent post from Yuna, she highlights this issue and shares her humble beginnings as a musician. She writes:
“You can achieve a small amount of success, or a huge one, but you never could have done it by yourself. Someone in your life, somewhere, was there to help you.
“I feel like a lot of people nowadays think that if they become something, they did it all by themselves. But I always knew someone went out of their way for me when I needed help, when I had nothing.”
She then describes how she had to go through hardship, especially when she first started off. It wasn’t easy, she worked hard to take up any gigs she could, and it’s even harder because some gigs would only give a very meager pay, or sometimes, no pay at all.
“Once, I had to split RM50 (about USD$15) with my bandmates and crew, and sometimes they worked for free because we didn’t get paid.. Or, when I first moved to LA, I ate instant noodles or rice and sardines on alternate days to save money because everything was too expensive in LA. But I had friends who looked after me & got me food. You know. Stuff like that..”
She ends her heartfelt post assuring everyone who’s been there for her, that she would not ever forget them.
“I will remember forever. Thank you. ❤️ ”
If you’ve someone who is and will always be there for you, remember to keep them close because we all know how hard it is to come across real friends who love you unconditionally.
