Feeling Unappreciated?

Feeling Unappreciated?

You WILL be! For someone somewhere (or most of them) you will always be inferior to someone else. To them there'll always be someone who is more capable than you, more useful than you, smarter than you... and some of their words will cut through your heart like a dagger. And it is painful because it comes from the people who you love and care about and not any Tom, Dick and Harry on the street.

And this is why Allah invites you to know Him by His Name Ash-Shakoor - The Most Appreciative! Because at the end of the day, people around you, no matter how close they are to you, they are just human beings and as flawed as you are. They can and WILL make mistakes. They may underrate you, may overlook your qualities, forget your favors on them and may even make you feel inferior. And yes, it can hurt real bad. But... hang in there... there is Someone closer to you, in fact The Closest to you (Al-Qareeb) who will NEVER underrate you or your efforts or your struggles and is EVER ready to appreciate them. He is Ash-Shakoor - The Most Appreciative.

And if you should ever feel that people treat you in an unfair way that you don't deserve, remember that there's Allah who ALWAYS treats you extremely well in a way that you don't deserve too. And this is the ultimate compensation. And the least YOU can do to Him, is to be grateful to Him. And according to Him you aren't grateful to Him unless you are grateful to His creations. So, to those loved ones who made you feel awful, forgive them for this mistake of theirs and count their favors on you and be grateful to them for the sake of The One who never fails to appreciate you...

You see.. its a beautiful cycle and the most soothing cure for your heart...
