And it’s horrible when you have allowed yourself to become enslaved by other human beings,
When you feel broken when they attack you,
When you feel defeated when they use harsh words towards you,
When you feel empty when they don’t respond to you,
And it makes you realise how dependent you are on them,
For their approval, their mercy, their kindness,
When in fact it doesn’t really matter,
As they won’t be deciding your outcome in the akhirah,
Only Allah will,
So why get bogged down by their reactions towards you?
Allah is greater than them all,
And He will never let us down.
