Verily, our dependency lies solely upon Allah, none other. When we put expectations on other than Allah, our system cannot fully function when those we put expectations and dependency on do not satisfy us. True, we all need to be helped in some way. We all need to help each other, for the spirit of goodness. But help itself only comes from the Only One who could help, and that’s no longer in the authority of anything lower than Allah. We all have different struggles, we are in no place to judge anyone who feel despaired by struggles similar to us (but we managed to get through the struggle). Yes, when we have succeeded in overcoming each struggle, that’s a good example to motivate others who might still be searching for air in overcoming theirs. But we are in no place to ridicule a person who cries in pain even for something as small a struggle in our eyes.
We might fall into the same rabbit hole, we might experience pulling the same roots in the hole to at least not fall deeper, but each one of us was designed differently. The strength we have is different. It depends on a lot of factors, like upbringing, the nutrients we’re getting, the mindset, and the list goes on and on. If you throw a rock of the same shape, mass, from the same distance of the same height and the same velocity and same force whatever you call it, to me… it might not feel the same if I do the same to you provided all of the above are kept constant. Nothing can be kept constant. Even if we keep the temperature of a room the same, I might say it’s cold while you might say it’s as hot as hell. See. The reason why we can’t judge anyone else to be of lesser being than us when that person does something bad is because that person’s logic might not yet reach what our logic have reached, in preventing self-inflicting harm. What I mean is, what we see apparent in our eyes from an evil-doer, doesn’t give us the rights to badmouth, or make assumptions that that person is doomed in condemnation. We can’t even be selfish to have demanded respect or anything from anyone because we never deserve it. Even the feeling of gratitude from others (when we help them), we are not entitled to receive that, because gratitude belongs to Allah alone.
How to say ah, I am beginning to see more and more weakness in human, especially when I observe my own self. Humans are so unpredictable…
(to be continued… and yes, this is one sign of how weak I can be, to make promises to continue writing despite having the writer’s block or so I claimed to be having at the moment.)
P/S: Don’t go there.
