People are more lenient when it comes to back-biting because in its nature its easy to indulge with and does not cause hardship to act upon it, all it needs is a move of a tongue, especially if the one being back-bitten was an enemy to those who are in the gathering, because they will be busy mentioning his or her flaws and become delighted with what they hear from defects about him or her in the same way a thirsty person is delighted with cold water to extinguish the heat inside of them, but in reality it is the retaliation from a helpless person, a weapon in the hands of a coward, because backbiters are always defeated when they know that the one they backbite is present, they would turn their slur into praise!
I am not a single individual on my own. I am my family. I’m nothing without them. So yes, the effect that cancer had on me changed the life of my family as well. I used to have a life full of people and activities due to my work and family, until…..cancer stepped into my life.
By this time, I had continuous triggers of extreme pain with no explanation at all. I am a very pleasant natured person, energetic and enthusiastic, with a smile on my face always, alhamdulillah. But now, my whole life was changing…I could not talk properly or even perform normal daily activities..
One of my favorite quotes is by Barbara J. Winter: “When you come to the end of all the light you know, and it’s time to step into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen: You will either be given something solid to stand on or you will be taught to fly.”
