So much has happen within such a short period, emotionally i am in a state of chaos. Funny how i let one imperfect human rule my mind and heart, until i forget what is more important in life…..as a muslim. Please bear with me as my posting will probably make you gag….
“Perhaps you can stop the cycle of sinning when you remind yourself of how you feel afterwards and why you no longer want to feel that way. Perhaps by preventing your nafs of doing what ‘feels good’ at the moment, you can then try to be good in all moments. Maybe what it takes is for you to try to be better and try to be stronger even when it is difficult. Keep in mind that change is not easy. Improving the state you’re in is not easy, it was never meant to be; but it will be worth it.
Don’t let failure prevent you from trying again and again to do better and to be better. Don’t allow failure to bring you back to a place you never want to go to again, to feelings you never want to feel again, to insinuations you never want to hear again. With the rising sun each day, you have an opportunity to do good, to be good.
And keep in mind that, “……Allah will not change the condition of a people until they first change what is in themselves.” So strive to overcome the difficult beginning to enjoy an everlasting good”
“At the end of the day…we’re just human. We make mistakes and fall short and disappoint ourselves and others and go from one internal conflict to another. We were not created to be perfect. Learn to forgive yourself for what has gone and accept that you have the responsibility to learn and keep learning and learning involves making mistakes.”
