Seriously Short Reminder No. 6 – Misery loves Company but…

by Umm Muawiyah

Assalamu Alaikum.

…….Company does not like Misery. Not at all.

We often see many people who look like they are competing for “The Most Miserable Person in the Universe” award. They just want everyone to feel as miserable as them and want to spread gloom and doom wherever they go.

What happens when you walk around with this sort of attitude? I’ll tell you what happens: People will avoid you like the plague, you’ll be surrounded by miserable people and you’ll only end up feeling even more miserable.

On the other hand, when you look cheerful and try to help out others (even if you were going through a bad time), people will want to be around you, you’ll be surrounded by happy people and you’ll really feel much better.

Want an example? Look at the Prophet (salallahu alaihi wasallam) and see how cheerful he always was despite going through so many trials.

Misery may love Company, but Company loves Happiness and Cheer.

So, let’s be of those who try to spread happiness rather than those who try to spread misery.
