The heart is a confusing, altering thing. No state is forever. No state of bliss lasts forever. But no state of pain does either. They all pass. So if you experience happiness, ask Allah to make it forever in jennah. And if you experience sadness, ask Allah to make it a means of purification and elevation for you. And know that this too shall pass.

Days will pass, and you will give up things you were addicted to,
You will leave someone, you will cancel a dream, and finally, you will accept a reality.

ستمضي للأيام .. وتتخلّى عن أشياءَ أدمنتها ..
ستترُكُ أحداً .. وستُلغي حُلماً .. وأخيراً ستتقبّلُ واقِعاً ..

It’s so difficult to describe depression to someone who’s never been there, because it’s not sadness. I know sadness. Sadness is to cry and to feel. But it’s that cold absence of feeling— that really hollowed-out feeling.
