"People don't leave because things are hard.
They leave because it's no longer worth it."
I saw it on the news feeds in fb and
it got me thinking.
It is true to a certain extent.
It is obvious we would leave something
that we think won't do us any good.
When we think it is no longer worthy of our time and effort.
When it is no longer worth the fight.
People would eventually leave.
even though it is still worth it,
people would still leave.
No matter how many times they tried to hold on.
No matter how many times they tried to fight.
What is there to hold on to when there's nothing to grasp?
In the end, people would leave
No matter how much they are trying to stay.
No matter how much it is killing them to let go.
There are some fights we would not win.
In this case,
could it be considered because things are hard?
When things went wrong.
We would blame others.
We would blame ourselves.
We would hold grudges.
We would carry the guilt.
We would dwell in the past.
We would think there's no meaning in our life anymore.
We forget about Him.
"It's okay to glance back,
but never dwell in the past.
Your future lies ahead
and it's waiting for you to catch up with it."
Whatever happened in our lives,
Allah permitted them to happen for a reason.
It is hard.
It is difficult.
we have to come back to Him,
and only Him.
and only Him.
People make mistakes.
We are definitely one of them.
Even though the idea of "to forgive and to forget" would be easier said than done,
We should try to,
because we would want others to forgive our own mistakes.
Remember the good things that people have done to us,
Forget the bad things they did.
Remember the bad things we have done to people.
Forget the good things that we did.
"...it is not the people (or even your own self) that can save you. Only Allah can do these things. The people are only tools, a means used by God. But they are not the source of help, aid, or salvation of any kind. Only God is. "
