'for the rest of your life'

Someone said that to me, that I should be happy for the rest of my life. 'The rest of my life' does not seem like it's that long. Doesn't sound like a strong enough excuse, to forsake what I have held for half my worldly life. I think perhaps I should struggle a bit more, and enjoy the fruits of my struggle in the Afterlife. May Allaah guide me/us to what is best for this world and the Hereafter.

I try to forgive others cause Islam promotes forgiveness so very often, in hadith and in the Quran ... but if you forgive that is better for you.

It is better for you, because it truly is good for your mental and physical health.   I think that it is a requirement to achieve a 'sound heart'.

However, I have just realised that though I try to forgive others - those 'others' are often those people who are not constantly in my life.  It's easier, cause I don't face them every day.

What I've forgotten and what is tougher, is trying to forgive those people near to me, my spouse, my parents, my children - to forgive them every day, every night.

I will forgive them, and I will forgive them every day. I will also seek forgiveness from God for myself, and I will forgive myself everyday. InsyaaAllaah.
