“Thanks for helping to organize Devfest.Asia!” Someone said to me as the largest community-organized web developer festival in South-east Asia draws to a close. “I really enjoyed it!”.
I should be happy when I hear things like this. Right? Well, I thought so too. But I didn’t feel it.
Deep down inside, instead of happiness, I feel a stab of pain whenever someone thanked me for organizing Devfest.Asia.
Strange, isn’t it? I couldn’t explain this feeling for a long time.
Now, I finally understood what has happened, and how it affects my life. I’d like to share this story since it might affect yours positively too.
Note: This would be an interesting read if you are someone who constantly feels you’re not good enough, or you haven’t done enough. For the rest, you can stop reading here now.
