The Philosophy of Giving… (En/Ar)

When people reveal their dark side and you choose to stay next to them, then you already know that you are no longer unaware of the harms of their darkness on your well-being. Remember that this was your choice from the very beginning, so do not blame them for being the victim of their pain. Due to their failing lights, the only thing they need is a constant light source that does not fade away.

If you are a lamp losing its flame and running out of oil, remember that they did not promise you to refill it. Your choice should have been more conscious bearing in mind your ability to give and that your light will eventually fade away and go out.. They were honest from the beginning when they revealed their weaknesses trying to ease away their pain.. So if you cannot be their sunshine, do not blame them on your breakdown..

Being full of darkness, they are not affected by thick fog .. All they need is a constant source of light that does not dim…

To love is to cast light on the dark sides of your loved ones. Love is light that does not fade away and does not entail fullness.. And whoever accepts you at your worst deserves all the love. So save your heart to those who constantly invest in your love.

So I leave you with one question: Can you fulfill this vow despite the forsaking of others?

حينما يُريك شخص ما جانبه المُظلم فتختار البقاء بجواره، اعلم أنك لم تعد غافلاً عن تضررك بظلامه.. تذكر أن هذا كان اختيارك منذ البداية.. لذا لا تلومه وتُشعره أنك ضحية آلامه.. هو مُعتم–كالمصباح المنطفئ–ولينير هو فقط يحتاج لمصدر نور لا يكف عن الضياء..

فإن كنت مصباحًا يفقد شعلته لانتهاء زيته، فهو لم يعدك بالامتلاء.. كان يجب أن يكون اختيارك واعيًا وتعلم قدر عطاءك وأنك حتمًا يومًا ما ستنفذ طاقتك.. لقد كان صادقًا معك منذ البداية وآراك ضعفه ليستريح.. ليتخفف.. فإن لم تستطع دوام الضياء فلا تحمله عبء تحطمك..

فمن يمتلأ بظلام حالك لا يتأثر بشدة الضباب.. بل لا يحتاج سوى نور لا ينقطع…

وما الحُب سوى أن يُضىء كلا الطرفين الجانب المُظلم في الآخر… الحُب نورٌ.. لا ينقطع.. ولا يشترط الامتلاء.. فمن يتقبلك وأنت معتم يستحق بجدارة كل الحب… لذا احفظ قلبك لمن يبذل في حبك دون انقطاع، فيستحق قربك ودعك ممن سواه..

ويبقى السؤال؛ هل تستطيع الوفاء بالعهد رغم خذلان الآخرين؟
