Putting our hopes and aims into this world will only bring despair and turmoil therefore let us not have any hopes for this world. Let us work for and put all of our hopes and wants into the next world and that way we will benefit FOREVER as oppose to chasing afetr this life where we will gain nothing but anguish in return.
So re-focus your wants to that of the next world and do not want anything in this world. In the hereafter we will regret the seconds we wasted chasing after this temporary world. We will wish that we wasted not a second on it. Therefore you must not hope for and want anything out of this world but know that Allah will give you from this world whatever he likes and if he holds something from you then he has something better for you either in this world or the next but we should all hope that it is only in this next world as that is what will last us forever rather than just lasting us for a short while where it will eventually end but in the next world it will NEVER end!
So once you re-align your focus then you will feel the sweetness of faith and your reliance will be upon Allah for everything. You will then truly feel the tranquility, peace and contentment in your heart but if you desire something in this world then you will continue to feel turmoil and anguish for shaythan will make you lose all hope and will want you to enter into despair and he will tell you to end it and will give you a quick way out- DEATH. But what those who commit suicide don't realise is that this is pure lies and deception for death is not a quick way out but it is the beginning of true torment for the person who chooses death as a way out.
The best way out of this is to shun this world and put ALL of your hopes, dreams, ambitions, desires and wants into the next world and that way you will NEVER feel let down or in turmoil for those who desire this world have nothing to live for but a temporary life which could end any second.
So live for eternity and not for this short life. Re-focus and re-align your needs and wants to that of the hereafter and live ONLY to please Allah and to attain the highest ranks possible in the hereafter. Let us not live to gain high ranks in this world but high ranks in the hereafter. Let us ask of Allah to give us a long life in this world so that we can gain higher ranks in Paradise and so that we can please Allah as much as we can. This should be our focus and aim. If you re-focus like i said then i promise this is your best way out of what you are going through but if you don't then you will only continue to be tormented by the evil lies and deciet of shaythan.
And Allah knows best in all matters
