Free Your Mind
It’s dangerous to give people a symbol to play in your life—to stagnate them, place them into a specific category: the savior, the hope, the enemy, the loyal friend, the angry foe. It tints our perception of them; either idealizing or demonizing them. Nothing is stagnant, not even our own hearts, so how can we expect others to play a permanent role in our lives?
Freeing people from the perceptions of our mind allows us to forgive them easily, because we don’t peg our expectations on anyone, except Allah ﷻ. And it makes us more thankful because when these people do help mend and lend us their hearts, our gratitude is unexpected, sincere, deep, and truly healing.
