Whenever I am sad, I try to remember the story from the glorious days of Islam. About a woman who lost all of her sons (six of them if I am not mistaken).
She always looked so happy despite the series of terrible deaths of her sons. One person thought she was the happiest person that person has ever met. So, that person asked her what's her secrets.
She then told that person that she was actually very lonely because all of her loved ones had gone. The only thing that kept her happy was the thought that all of them died in the holy war and she was glad that all her sons died a shahid.
So, don't be sad with your life unless you actually have a sad life.
Anyway, I found out that my sister was not very happy with me.
I didn't realize until I read what she wrote.
Basically, some relatives came from far so I treated my family member with lunch at a nice restaurant. It wasn't intended but I had my credit card with me so I offered myself to pay.
It wasn't too expensive, I would say, for 15 heads.
As usual, the pakciks and makciks were praising my generosity and they thought I was rich. My sister pulak terasa and makan hati.
So, in this case, was it my fault that she was hurt?
She mentioned things like, just because I work as this, just because I studied there, just because I am more outspoken than her, they thought I am all great, but they don't know that I come home late until 2-3am, sometimes I am being rude to my parents, etc etc.
Now that I am actually jotting it down, the things she said about me, ouch, it hurts!
If only she knows how sometimes I envy her in ways she'd never imagine.
If only she knows how I look myself in disgust, sometimes, I probably hate myself more than she hates me.
