‘At least’ is phrase commonly associated with losers who’s envious or trying to seek solace from what he’s got.
Here’s a few examples:
- At least my car is faster than yours, when his friend got a new car.
- At least I earn 4 times than you, when his friend got a raise.
- At least my house is bigger, when his friend bought a new house.
Of course in our lives, it’d be almost impossible to dismiss these
losers ASS. In English, it’s called snobbish.
During my umrah, I gave at least a few spins on what needs to be done to become a betterman. And I realised, I’m verbal all the time. That practically makes me a MAN bitch.
No matter how hard I tried to rule out slight enviousness, it always comes knocking hard on my doorstep. The Oil Man, Bankers, IT consultants, the married couples, the newly weds, you name it, I envy them all.
But out of that desperation, I realized, at least I made enough to meet my monthly cut. What about the poor? The less fortunate? The disabled? The orphans?
So here’s a few ways for me counter that stupid feeling;
- Life is short. Heaven is eternity.
- Masha Allah. Empathize others, God has willed it.
- Insha Allah. My time will come, God’s willing.
- F it!
In all honesty, there is really no need to be envious. The key here is to never give up and never fail to try.

Because tonight will be the night
That I will fall for you over again
Don’t make me change my mind
Or I won’t live to see another day
I swear it’s true
Because a girl like you’s impossible to find
ps: I meant to write an emo post, somehow I got deviated from my own topic. I guess, NH has mellowed down.
pss: I’ve showed you an example of how to use at least in a humble manner.
