Being Emotionally Dependant

Suddenly I remembered something about my past, an unforgettable one
It is about myself, when I was in secondary school

I never had a real friend back then, and I wasn't in good term with my family
So I really needed someone whom I can share my feelings, whether it is a boy or a girl, as long there is anyone
I used to trust everybody, so whenever there is a chance, I always told them about my problems
The agony of sadness at that time, I remember it until now
This trait of mine goes on until I was in INTEC, or specifically, until when I loose a friend, a great one
I realized then how much I depend on others; without even give myself a second to think for myself
How ludicrous I was



Every time I had a problem, I never thought that I can solve it myself
I don't know why my mind set is like that
Now that I think back again, I just want to smack something for how pathetic I was

When these memories run through my mind, there is something that struck me, but I don't know how to describe it

Lately, there is a question that had been lingering in my mind
"When we have a problem, is it best to just keep it to ourselves, or tell the others?"

When we keep it to ourselves, it is good since we don't want to make things harder for others
and maybe we can solve it by ourselves
But what if the problems that we keep inside become a burden that keep us down the whole time?

When we tell others, maybe the person can help us to overcome the problem, and it made us feels better since we don't have to keep it alone
But, it is not nice if we burden others by telling other our problems
Since they also might have personal problems that they want to settle

My opinion is that we shouldn't be too extreme to either one of it or both
Don't keep all our problems inside, but in the same time, don't tell all our problem to everyone

Guess what? Allah is always there for us
Only we, rarely remember Him and forget that He will always listen to our plead
Don't forget to tell Him first before we tell the others, because He always miss the voice of His servants

Du'a is the weapon of mukminun

(Sorry for the kinda-distorted post; it comes straight from my heart)

  1. Straight from ur heart,
    that reflects who you really are.
    Sometimes keeping the problems to ourselves is better because we can't rely our friends all the times since they also have their own problems~

  5. to anon again - I understand why it is better to keep the problems to ourselves. My opinion is that we should try to settle our problems first. Once it gets to hard for us to overcome, then we seek help from those who can really help, not just anybody. I know from what I'd done, it is not right to tell every single person about our problems.. but we need to seek help from Allah first! :)

    remember surah al-Fatihah verse 5~

  7. huhu...ini la post yg ko nak tunjukkan kan aku yea? mantap...

    mmg kene amalkan kesederhanaan dalam apa jua pon yg kita buat...termasuk la apa yg ko citer kat part2 last post nih...

    masalahnya, kita susah nak taw; dekat mana titik tengah sesuatu itu? macam mana nak bersederhana kalau tak taw mana titik tengah sesuatu?

    fikir2 kan la...

New College Life In UKM

After intentionally abandoning my blog for around 6 weeks, I think it's about time I write something about what is currently happening in my life.

Since the last time I updated, I haven't done anything much. I met some of my friends, and mostly spent my time with my families and explaining to every single one of them about "why" am I not returning to the States. Most of the them accept the fact easily and told me to be strong, work hard in the future and don't make the same mistake (which usually just simplified to "don't play games too much")

Because of What Someone Said

So a few days ago, I visited Borders Bookstore in IOI City Mall to get a book for a friend of mine. Incidentally, it is also my favorite bookstore, due to its quite nice selection of books and its location from my house. Anyway, the book that I wanted to buy was The End of Average by Todd Rose. I already finished that book (I want to write about it as well later), so I recommended it to my friend and she asked me to buy one for her. I had an exam on the day after but as far as I'm concerned, reading is more important than any exams that I will most likely forgot in a few weeks.

Also, each time I visit a bookstore, I will always walk out the store with at least one book. So, besides the book that I intended to buy, I bought two other books because I found it interesting. I know, it is a truly 'good' idea to buy two books when you have an exam tomorrow. In this post, I want to talk about the reason why I picked up one of the books.

Being Different Is Lonely

From our ages, I know that I am different from most of my classmates. Naturally, most of them are three years younger than me, but that is not the problem. In fact, I had the most fun surrounded by them. They don't treat me differently just because I'm older. I think I am blessed with the fact that there are others who are older than the average (those who were born in 1993) in the batch.
I think I am not as matured as someone of my age should. But then again, there's no guideline on how matured a person should be or how you to be a mature person. Though my guidelines are basically these two: when you can prioritize and you can be responsible towards your actions. I don't know if I have these two qualities, but I know I am working towards it, slowly but surely.
Anyway, being older doesn't make me automatically different from the others. But there are certain things that make me feel.. different, and sometimes isolated. Like at this moment of writing, I am overwhelm…
