The Vow: For Better or For Worse

Been a week (or more) since my last writing. I'm glad to be back here, sitting in front of my desk and willing to write something short. :)

To be honest, my life has been curved to be perfect these days. I'm now living in very peaceful place, such quite and comforting place. With a grateful heart, I thank God for the amazing family, sweetest boyfriend and great friends surrounds that make my every single day worth the living. I'm one of the luckiest girl alive.

Looking back to the past realized me how kind Allah is. Truly kindhearted. Hard times He gave to me was simple training, so I could gain my strength and transform into a better, better person. And it worked. He succeeded. There was a lowest point I survived from. A turn out point fulfilled with tears and depression. There's a time when I felt like losing grip and couldn't be able to breathe. It was scary to feel yourself going insane. But Allah is fair. He's never been unfair. For one thing He takes away from you, He'll give you the much better replacement. The wrong picks will lead you to the right place, with the right person in it. :)

Love the one you go to the first for comfort in bad times. At the end, everybody may hurt you. It's okay to be afraid, as long as you don't get lost and you keep your faith. God is kind, you know? Allah is kind. He gives you a partner to help you, so you'll be able to share what you've been going through: when things are going well, also when things aren't going so well. And if anyone hurts you, your partner will strongly protect you, and smilingly say, "Don't worry. Let face it together, both of us. And I'll help you to heal the wound."

The little phrase in the vow means that through good times and bad times, you promise to stay by your partner, no matter what. If you've ever heard the Buddhist wedding vows, you'll come to notice that every word written there is quietly detail, about the companion:
"In the future, happy occasions will come as surely as the morning. Difficult times will come as surely as the night. To say the words 'love and compassion' is easy. But to accept that love and compassion are built upon patience and perseverance is not easy."

Have you found the one who will there for better or for worse? I hope I have had. :)

I love you, to whom it may concern. I pooh you. Unconditionally.

"I promise... to be your faithful partner in good times and in bad, 
and in joy as well as in sorrow.
To support you in your goals, to honor and respect you,
to comfort and encourage you, to stay with you,
through whatever life may bring us."
