They think I’m crazy.

Happy Holidays

Its getting worse by the hour. And that’s why you ran away. Smart choice. Can’t wait to go to Chicago and never return. From 5 to 3…congrats and thanks for not being understanding, asking my side with patience, listening, cause no one is supposed to care or listen to her feelings. As he said, ‘you’re feelings dont matter’. Thanks for being bias, and to your instigator who apparently makes your life better every year, and ruins ours mine.

Stupid Culture

Don’t get me wrong, but being cultured is a part of becoming knowledgable and understanding different groups of people. Thats a great thing. Traveling and absorbing new cultures creates character, tolerance, and makes you kind toward humanity [at least thats the way I see it]. And then there is ‘following dumb cultural traditions’. Oh, this gets on my nerves! I hate it so much. If I know someone and I find out he or she follows a certain cultural tradition that disturbs peoples’ or an individual’s life including my own, I start disliking them slowly. A lot.

This is problematic. So, I turn to Islamic teachings and try to find out if Islam agrees on these traditions or its just stupidity passed on by generation to generation. The latter comes to conclusion most of the time. Then, I take a deep breath and confirm that I am not crazy.

One of my missions in life is to abolish the ‘people think this’ or ‘what will they say’ or ‘but thats how it is’ norm. And, I WILL NOT GIVE UP.

The hard part is when you want to potentially ‘like’ someone, but their thinking is stuck in that profound nonsense. Its so hard not to hurt their feelings. You have to take risks. I try little by little, but when they aren’t getting it, I have to talk about it face-to-my-intense-I-almost-hate-you-face.

Good luck to me.
I hope you all had a great ThanksGiving.

Day #29

Love for the sake of Allah. It ends the argument and self loathing in your head all the time. Alhumdulilah. I’d explain more but, I am saving that for another post, Insha Allah. Dua for me!

“On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Allah will say on the Day of Resurrection: ‘Where are those who love one another through My glory? Today I shall give them shade in My shade, it being a day when there is no shade but My shade.'” [Bukhari (also by Malik).]”

That was the point. And aren’t you excited that its almost the 30th post!!! Better late than never, right? I don’t like quitting.

Salam. Peace!

Day #20

Well, more like #IDEK [I don’t even Know..is that a real thing?]. Anyway…I am just pondering about people and situations..or how I should be freaking out about my exam. People are so ‘unknown’ right? Well, thats ’cause we don’t know them. I was with a few of my friends [yes, I have friends] and one of them [and yes, there are more than two] says, “oh, you’re so chill, and relaxed all the time!”…My dumb-reflex-ungrateful-response was, “um…I have so many problems”. She got me though. She said, “…everyone does”.

The point is, “You aren’t alone. In one way or another every person is going through something. Suck it up and be thankful for everything, and YES Allah tests those who He knows can take it. There is always something to come out of it.” Trust me, I know…lots of experience Alhumdulilah!

Salam. Peace!
