The Reality

"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.

Really?

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.

However,
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.
Most importantly,
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.
But
we have to come back to 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. "
 Yasmin Mogahed 

There's a part 2 written beautifully from her,

Takdir?

I hate the fact that I tend to think and imagine
how much things would be different if I acted differently.

If I didn't do that, would I still have it?
If I didn't say that, would it change anything?

What if?
Should have.
Shouldn't have.
These invade my thoughts often.

Possibilities.
It doesn't matter anymore for things in the past.
For time is the most expensive thing in the world.
For time couldn't be rewound
like how we rewind a movie.

Somehow it could drive people crazy with all the regrets and guilt.
Knowing that they had the power and the opportunity
to change whatever.

They had.
We had.
 I had.

Does this show I am still not at peace with what Allah has decided for me?

"Allah is the best planner.
Trust Him.
Whatever happened or is happening.
It happened for a reason."

Like a mantra, I put it on repeat in my head.

Husnuzon dengan Allah.
Let go of the past, of whatever that are holding you to move forward.
The present needs you now for the future.





p/s:
Encountered this article before and it knocked some sense into me.
Perhaps it would be useful to you too. ;)
