Asalam waliykum brothers and sisters
Inshallah you are all in the best of deen and health.
Just wanted to know how you deal with sadness?
How do you deal with the "Reality check"
For example, freind or family member is getting married. Alhamdulillah very happy and then, bam, out of know where reality check and the sadness hits. You are single, have not even met anyone and not going to be geting married any time soon.
(This is what im going through now)
I suppose it does not help i live alone,
I make dua and constintly in rememberance of Allah.
I try to keep myself busy i have a few hobbies like my arts 'n' crafts. I am forever watching Islamic programmes and islamic TV. I tryand meet up with sisters when i am not working.
The distractions work for a while and the worries go away, then i come back to reality and back at square one... i am single, and have not met anyone even remotly suitable for me.
Also doesnt help when i meet up with my freinds or any sisters, men as in marriage is the main topic. We ask everyone if they met anyone, listen to all the disastrous meetings...then We have a good old moan about there not being a decent brothers, we cheer ourselves up with some marriage humour and we will repeat this the next time we meet up
