TOWARDS THE YOUTH
How toUtilize the Blessings of Life?
Most youths, male and female, ask them-selves, “Do I possess any wealth so as to be thinking of how to develop it and make use of it in my day to day activities?”
It is possible that someone may look at himself as poor, possessing nothing, because he can not achieve what he wants like elder people. Indeed, such kind of wrong conception makes many of the youths see the world dark, life as miserable and seek unconstitutional ways of living.
Once a young girl of eighteen years wrote to her diary, thus:
“I am not able to explain anything… I am about to lose my memory. Too much anxiety and thinking and I lost my self-confidence. Whenever I start anything I will develop fear about its outcome, thereby contemplating on whether I will be able to do it or not, I am always unhappy…whenever I look at my face in the mirror, I find it ugly, thus, I hate myself to the extent that I wish I had never been born.”
Another young boy also wrote:
“Whenever I looked in the mirror and saw a young fellow, I used to ask myself…can I love this creature who resembles me completely, if by the grace of Allah he came out from the mirror and lived with me?”
Sometimes, a young fellow may blame his family, especially his parents, on the condi-tion he find himself in; just because nobody censured him more than them.
