The Art of Breaking Hearts? Oh yeah!

We've all had people in our lives who have pretty much walked all over us just like a footmat or even worse. Generally, It does hurt but you know, we get busy, think of other things and almost get done through it.

BUT! What happens when someone we love the most and have been doing so for as long as we could remember uses their skills of breaking hearts on us? The answer is very simple, What you ask? Its painful, Ouch. The Lesson is very priceless, What you ask? Stop Expecting.

Okay, so with the way this post is going I know it is a total rant. Then Again, I know we all are human beings and expectations are like our second nature. Even when we know a person just for few days, it does not stop our hearts from getting attached to that person and from having certain expectations.

So we stop expecting from people for sometime, yet subconsciouly after a while we tend to restart with the whole expectations-fiesta all over again. Now, what do we do? Stop Expecting? NO. Then? Well, expect from the right source. Like? Allah (May He be Glorified)

"And your Lord says: "Call on Me; I will answer your (Prayer)!" [Quran Surah 40 Verse 60]

''Just think who answers the oppressed person when he cries out to Him and relieves his affliction, and makes you, O mankind, inheritors of the earth? Is there another god besides Allah? How little do you reflect!'' [Quran 27 Verse 62]

There you go, I am not making it up, It's all about the right source. Just as You cannot go to a downtown area looking for Louis Vuitton or Gucci (unless, you want the fake stuff). In the same manner you cannot expect from the creation while knowing that expectations can only be perfectly met if they are from The Creator.

Note to Self : I should really use atleast half of the advice I give here


  1. Hun, life is full of ups and downs, its a roller coaster ride, just hold on tight and do your best. Its our natural human nature to put expectations on others, sometimes that proves beneficial and other times it proves to be detrimental... we just have to take it as it comes. Remember that Allah swt will never put you in a situation that you are unable to get out of.

  2. And whosoever fears Allaah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty). And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine...” [al-Talaaq 65:2,3].

  3. True, everyone keeps telling themselves not to expect not to expect not to expect, but one always ends up expecting something or the other from others! even if it be a mere hug or a pat on the back
