the glass vase.

salam blackout. LOL! No no. this post tak berkaitan dengan politik.

cuma nak quote dari buku Yasmin Mogahed because I once mentioned this during SC a.k.a usrah.

'As I got older, any fall-out with a friend shattered me, I couldn't let go of something. People, places, events, moments--even outcomes became objects of strong attachment. If things didn't work out the way i wanted or imagined they should, I was devastated. And disappoinment for me wasn't an ordinary emotion. It was catastrophic. Once let down, I never fully recovered. I could never forget, and the break never mended. Like a glass vase that you place on the edge of a table, once broken, the pieces never quite fit again.

'However the problem wasn't with the vase, or even the vase kept breaking. The problem was that I kept putting them on the edge of tables'

Kalau timbul soalan, siapa tempat kita luah masalah, yang selalu support kita? Parents? Best friend? Now imagine, those people takde atau Allah tarik balik orang tu dari kita. Kita jadi?



Imagine them as a glass vase, sensitif, senang pecah, tapi berharga. Kalau pecah, sambung lekat guna gam UHU, gam Gajah, Harimau, Ular, Kambing pun takkan sama macam yang asal.

Salahnya bukan pasu tu diperbuat dari kaca. Salahnya kita letak pasu tu kat hujung meja.

We depend on those people to fulfill our needs.

We create false attachments.

Orang buat kita happy, kita happy.
Orang buat sesuatu yang kita terasa, kita sedih.
Macam roller-coaster.
Frequency menjerit bergantung pada jalan yang roller-coaster lalu.

We experience this emotional roller coaster because we can never find stability and lasting piece until our attachment and dependency is on what is stable and lasting.

Don't let your source of fulfillment be anything other than your relationship with Allah.

Don't let your definition of success, failure, or self-worth be anything other than your position with Him.
