They say things happen for a reason, as for me things happen to fit a purpose. To read between the lines is time consuming for me. Put yourself first, your parents second and God above all.
Some people love to pick up other people's broken pieces to fit in their art to make it looks perfect. Nothing wrong to be an opportunist.
A wise friend told me, (a smart one too) at one point when you have nothing left to pray for, just pray for everything to be the way they suppose to be. Good or bad. Allah is there for you.
When i just about to give up, she gave in, thank you.
