“The intelligent person does not cling to this material world.”
Ibn Al-Qayyim (rahimahullah) [Al-Fawaaid A collection of wise sayings, p.228]
“I barely noticed loneliness anymore; it was my normal condition, by necessity if not by nature.”
Her:Do you still remember when I asked you if you'd do anything to keep me and you said you will?
Him:Yes, I do.
Her:You know what, I believed that. I held onto that for so long. When the problems that we were facing seem to swallow us whole and when it seems that everything that we're doing were not enough to save the relationship and I was close to giving up, I think of your answer to that question. Then something would just stir within me. I tell myself, "this man is going to do anything to keep me. I should do the same too." That kept me going when we were starting to rot as a couple and was starting to plunge downhill. That was all it took to renew my faith and hope in us, that we could still patch things up and make it work. But when you said you want a break up, I felt like I was slapped. I felt betrayed. I asked you, "where are your words?" But you did not say anything. You just turned your back on me and walked away. I guess it's true that most of the time, people do not understand the promises they're making when they're making them.
