Agar kho gaya ek nasheman to kya gham
maqamat-e-ah-o-fughan aur bhi hain
In his poem ‘Sitaron se aagay Jahan aur bhi hain’, Allama Iqbal puts forth a simple antidote for our misery; a simple advice when overcome with loss- the worse is yet to come.
You may argue that this will rather depress a person instead of alleviating him out of his misery but think about it, if each time we face troubles, grief, losses we remind ourselves that this hardship is quite insignificant to what we are about to face in future; we will feel ourselves more strong than ever. If I tell you that the future you would laugh off at something over which you are crying right now, you might stop crying at it because you will realize that the future you is mature enough to tackle this current situation.
Remember something that had you sleepless 5 years ago? Today, you are probably wondering, really? Did that insignificant problem matter so much?
As Ghalib puts it ~ Mushkilein mujh par padhi itni ki asaan hogayin
So, everyone is telling you one thing- it will get better just hang in there. Either you will become stronger than before or the problems will perish but latter seldom happens.
