Avoidable Anxieties

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

A large part of our anxieties [stems from] restricting ourselves to certain options over others.

One restricts himself to a specific job that he’s not suited to; or to studying within a particular specialization that’s not easy for him; or to marrying [someone] from a particular family that doesn’t seem easy or possible for him [to marry from]; or to maintaining relationships with certain individuals he [himself] doesn’t feel happy to be around.

Give yourself a variety of options to choose from out of [the realm of what’s] permissible and possible.
