“What is wrong with me?” You ask yourself. “Why am I so lonely? Why don’t people like me?!” Thoughts like these run through your mind like crazy. Darling, I know. I know how it feels to feel so lonely in a room full of loved ones. I had the same question. What did I do wrong? Am I too boring? I pondered frequently, cried myself to sleep at night because of this unwanted feeling. As time passed through, and as I grew, I started to realize that there was more to this feeling. This is not where I belong I sometimes think, but there’s definitely a reason for why I’m here. I go through posts on tumblr, and one particular post caught my eye, “we were not made for this dunya.” Right! I think this all the time, I’m definitely not made to be where I am at this point of life. I still wondered what caused this emptiness day after day. I still do. But now I’m wiser, I know that these things should not matter as I have a greater purpose, you and I, both. We feel like strangers because we are strangers. We are here not to please the people around us is what we need to understand. We are not here to rely on the people around us. Once we realize that, everything will make so much more sense. We have a higher purpose, we might feel unappreciated here, but we will be given what we deserve in our true home.
Don’t let the dunya sadden you too much, we were not meant to be so close to this dunya. Make improvements and work hard so your aakhira, your eternal home, will have infinite blessings within. Keep that your focus and goal, worry less of how to please others, and please the one whom you should be pleasing.
