Chances

You deserve better than that” - I used to say, to anyone who opens up to me about the problems they face in their relationships, whether its about honesty, loyalty, commitment you name it. But that's the thing, my best friend and I both agreed that it's so easy to make decisions when you're not the one facing the problem first hand. It's difficult when you're in that situation because it's not as simple as it sounds when someone says "why can't you just leave ?". They don't know the emotional attachment and sentiments you have towards the other person and the relationship. So you give the person who hurt you a second chance.. and a third.. and a fourth.. and a fifth. 

How many chances would it take for you to give to be considered naive for staying ? There is no definite answer. And I guess that's what it means to have unconditional love for another person. You give and you give and you give, even when you weren't or you're not getting what you want in return. This can also be reflected upon different kinds of love too, how a mother forgives and loves her child no matter how much they break her heart, how Allah gives, and gives, and gives you all the rezeki to you despite you not doing enough for Him. 

Back to the relationship context of things, never take those who give us second chances for granted. We need to understand how hard it is for them to move on and to overlook the mistakes that have been made, to mend the heart that’s already broken, to live everyday after that trying to accept that past is past, to be brave enough to trust again even when they’re scarred and scared, to strengthen themselves so their fears and doubts don't get the best of them, to always believe in the good despite everything that has happened. 

It takes a lot for someone to be able to give out second chances. 

And if you're one of those people who give, you're so strong and you deserve all the love in the world. x

  4. This is a very very good post Izza. Knowing the fact that I've been through in this situation made me realize how I am so proud of myself that I can actually went passed it. One thing I would like to share is that the process of moving on is never easy. It takes a lot for a person to put everything behind. What I did when I went through all these is just give myself time. It is really painful though. But trust me, it will made you even stronger than you ever know.
