The Relationship Goals

Posted on: August 22, 2016

Until just a little while ago, I used to wonder what I did so wrong that my past relationships never lasted long or even never happened in the first place.

Is it something that I said?

Should I be more obvious on the way I felt about him?

Should I be nicer, less moody, more patient, more like many other girls that I know? Really? Should I really be so much less of myself?

Or maybe, I shouldn’t do this and that to keep him around, should I?

But then lately I realized… They; all those guys from the past, just didn’t feel the same way like I used to feel about them. Because if they did really care about me, then they would never give up on me. They, together with myself, would always try to find a way to make it work between the two of us.

If both of us really wanted to make it happen, then no matter how many mistakes we had done to each other, we’d always try to forgive each other. If there was any doubt, insecurity, and confusion between us, we would ask and talk like an adult. And if we really loved each other, as much as we tried to bring out the best of each other, at the end of the day, we would still accept each other just the way we were.

It takes two to tango; a relationship can’t work if both of us don’t do the work. I couldn’t be perfect, he couldn’t be perfect, yet we should always try to live with that anyway.

Don’t blame yourself way too hard if someone you love does not love you as much as you love them. Don’t feel too much less than who you are, don’t feel worthless, don’t feel like all mistakes are on you. Love yourself enough to move on, or maybe, to fight for it – properly – just one more time.

Whatever it is, always do remember: when two people really care about each other, they – both of them! – will always find a way to make it work. No matter how hard it is. Period.

From classmates to travelmates! Been friends since we were only 15 years old! Met them up today and we’ve made a lot of plans for our coming trips. Let’s make it happen!
I don’t know why but I couldn’t seem to get any new outfit for Lebaran this year. I went to three shopping malls but then I went home with empty hands. So here I am... wearing one old dress I bought a couple years ago. Today before Eid prayer was begun, I saw something that made me smile. I instantly knew that I’ve had something way more important than a new dress for myself. I’d be happy if I had a new dress, but I’m still perfectly happy even without any of it. God has been incredibly kind to me and Ramadhan this year couldn’t be more miraculous to me. I am full of flaws, but I’ve had way more than enough, and I couldn’t ask for more. Eid mubarak and please do forgive me for all the wrong said and done. Let’s celebrate this holly day as the new beginning for each and everyone of us. Love - Riffa.
Arfa, my very first nephew, is turning six today! Just two days ago, he told me, “Aunty, when I grow up, I want to be vey rich so that I can buy for you anything you want!” He’s lovable, isn’t he? It never ceases to amaze me to see all the new things he learned, said, and did in the past 6 years. He’s growing up so fast and I can’t be prouder of him! Happy birthday, Arfa! Wish you’ll always be a loving kid and may Allah always bless you in every step of the way. So much love - your proud Aunty ❤️
