See good in everything & everyone


Hello hello. I've been planning to post this topic earlier but I couldn't, I apologize for being late. Anyways, a few days ago, I've been talking to one of my closest friends and we shared a lot together. She told me lots about her fears and doubts and that reminded me  of a lot of others that share the same thoughts. It really affects me to see brilliant people doubt themselves and fear lots of things. People sometimes complain about their lives and when they do that, they usually forget about the good parts in it. Complaining isn't bad and I can't say it's good either but I know for a fact that we need to talk and sometimes complain to someone we trust.

For several years, I've been noticing that most of the people I know complain to me about lots of things in their lives. Although I could see how good their lives were but I knew that some of them didn't want to hear it.  I could see the difference between a person who truly suffer and a person who just want to complain and that taught me to never waste my time and energy on the wrong ones. Those who really suffer from negative thoughts, fears and doubts want to see the good side in their lives and want to hear about the good things in them. On the other hand, those who just want to complain never see the good side, they don't even bother to look for it and they want to hear nothing about it.

I know that most of us if not all have certain kinds of fears and self-doubts. I know I have lots of these but I never let them hold me back, they might've  prevented me from seeing the good parts but it never stopped me from taking the first step. I know how hard it is to fight your fears but believe in yourself and don't wait for others to believe in you because after all, they won't and some of them will push you down whenever they get the chance. And when it comes to self-doubts, it's a bit harder than fighting your fears because you don't have to eliminate them but on the other hand, you have to accept them. It might take so much time to accept what you have, to love yourself with all your flaws and to see the good things instead of the bad but no matter how much time it's gonna take, I know it's worth the try.

 

I encourage you to see the good parts in everything. I want you to be stronger for yourself and to be thankful for what you already have. Don't let yourself down, believe me at the end of the day all what you have is your own thoughts, let them be bright to make you shine. Don't waste your time complaining to others because they won't get it the same way you do. Don't waste your time focusing on the smallest details that you don't like and forget about the greatest that you love. It's okay to fail, to feel bad about it for some time, to feel betrayed and to cry about it for a whole day but when you're done, then make sure you won't feel the same thing about it and start to take the next step with your head up in the clouds.

I also encourage you to put your distant between the negative people you have in your life, those who call you only to complain about the smallest details and never mention the good ones. Those who never call to ask you how's your day but to fill you up with their negativity and then leave you in their dark spot. Surround yourself with dreamers that never laugh at your dreams, with successful that encourage you to never give up. Surround yourself with believers that believe nothing is impossible and cheerful that always cheer you up whenever you need it. Make sure you're one of those people to lead a perfect life that has ups and downs, but no matter what happens you always see the good in both sides.

It's also important to realize that seeing good in everything might be a bit hard and sometimes you need someone to remind you of the bright side of a negative situation. Always remember, every story has two sides and every situation has two sides, it's all up to you and to the way you want to see it.  It's not going to be easy, trust me with this, but it also won't be hard to never try it. Not to mention that it needs to be practiced, try to see the good parts in the smallest things you hate and then lead the way to the biggest problems you have. See good in your negativity, being a little negative sometimes won't kill you but on the other hand, sometimes it protects you from making a mistake or to prevent you from getting yourself hurt. It's gonna kill you for sure if you can't handle it well, if you can't understand yourself better and if you let it take over the good side. A good amount of everything always help, positivity and negativity help you in different ways and everyone of us has them both. The difference between us is how we handle them and how we make them affect our lives. Don't let both of them take too much of your life, always prepare for the worst and always expect the best.

Moreover, it's important to see good in people as well, don't focus only on the bad sides they have. Train your mind to see good in everything and everyone. If you chose to see the beauty in everything, you will see it and you will appreciate it. If you chose the opposite, you won't be able to live a good life. People make mistakes but don't expect the worst from those who make them and don’t' ignore the good things they do because of that one or two mistakes they've made. Don't always expect good from those who never fail or made a single mistake in front of others. Don't let what you see control what you believe or what you feel is right, sometimes it's okay to expect good from the worst and sometimes it's okay to do the opposite. This way you can protect yourself and it helps you to be fair with yourself and others. Always try to be fair and never judge those who make terrible things because someday, you might do the worst for reasons nobody would understand but yourself.  Train yourself to bring the good in people and be aware that nobody is a saint, we all make mistakes and we all fail but at the end it's all gonna be okay.

An Orphan Kid


 
Hello hello. Since I'm sharing my thoughts and feelings a lot lately, I decided to post something a bit different. I have lots of stories about great people in my life. People that inspired me and motivated me to never give up and to work as hard as I can to get the things I want . They believed in me and encouraged me to be a better person than I used to be. They've witnessed my failures, my disappointments and myself destruction.  I guess telling a story that inspired me is going to help me focus on the bright side of my life. Reminding myself of some of the good people that I met and to take a moment to appreciate them is pretty much useful.
 
A while ago, I had a breakdown and I decided to drop college to work my ass off and to get money for a better one. I thought I was wasting my time on basically nothing. In fact, I believed that but I didn’t have the courage to actually do it. I wasn't paying attention to the things around me, I was a wreck and pretty much lost in my own thoughts. I couldn't figure what's good for me to begin with and how to fix my mistakes without risking too much.
 
One day, I finished my classes and I met this man, he asked me if there's something wrong with me and I started to talk and complain about everything I had in my mind. He is one of the most incredible men I've ever met in my life and he decided to tell me a story about his life when he was younger than me. His story really changed my perspectives and he gave me a better look to the world.
 
He told me about his education story, I know it sounds boring or serious but honestly I could do anything to hear that story again, it literally affected me. I don't know where to begin but let me start from the first thing I remember. He told me that he used to be a great student back in the 60's. he was excellent and he really loved school despite all the difficulties he had back then and prevented him to do his best. When he was 12 he lost his father and that was hard enough for him to do better. He had to take care of his mother and his little sisters.
 
He was the man of the house after his father, he did everything he could to make his family happy. He had to make sacrifices for them and he never hesitated to do what best for them. He told me how difficult it was to be a 12 years old and to have big responsibilities on his shoulders. He had to work at night to make money for his family and he had to go to school every day. He said " I never missed a day, I had big plans for my future and I believed I could do more for my family". After a while, his mother got sick and he needed to work harder to pay for her medicines. He had to drop school for some days to work at  a workshop at night and he also worked at a grocery store. He said, " I used to study for school and work at the same time, it wasn't hard for me because I used to enjoy it"
 
 A couple of years later, his sisters got married and he was alone with his mother. He took care of her besides his job and school. He told me that he never complained about it and he was terrified of the idea of losing her to death. He used to tell her about his day and how delightful it was although he started to suffer between his 2 jobs and school. He couldn't bare the idea of losing his mother, she was everything he had. He had to drop school and to find a job that could pay him well to take a good care of her. She never knew about that and he had to lie to her just to cheer her up. One day, one of his teachers called the house to ask about him and that day was the day his mother found out about the mistake he made. She asked him to go back and to never care about anything else other than his school. He refused that and he begged her to never ask that again.
 
Months later, he had to travel to a different town to work there for 2 days. He asked one of his sisters to take care of his mother while he's gone. It only took him 2 days, but those were the last time he ever heard from his mother.
 
He was 18 when he lost her and that was the only thing he kept fighting for to never lose. He was young and fragile, he couldn't bare the pain and he didn't leave his house for 2 weeks. When he finally realized the ugly truth, he decided to go back to school but they never took him in again. They told him he missed his chance and then he had to go back to his formal job because that’s what left for him.     
 
He told me if he tried harder, he could've completed his education and he could've had better chances for his kids and wife. His family means the world to him and he's willing to do anything for his kids to study at the best schools and universities. He told me he would love for them to be the best of the best. To have better lives than he had but he doesn't want to push them so hard and he wants them to pick the major they prefer. Even if he wants a better one for them, he won't push them at all. All what he wants for them is to follow their dreams and never ever give up. He said life wasn't easy on him and he's doing everything in his power to make it a bit easy on them, they are everything he has in this world.
 
He told me giving up is so easy and he had lots of difficult choices to make. He never gave up and he was hard to take down. He was strong enough for his mother and he never thought he would ever going to lose her, and when she died he gave up on life for a whole 2 weeks. He regret not trying harder to get back to school because he thinks that cost him his children happiness for not being the father they wanted him to be. A successful man and a great father that would give them anything they desire without blinking twice. He feels sorry and he's doing his best for his children to not let them make the same mistake he did a long time ago.
 
He took a moment looking at me about to cry, and he said " you must think less of me now, I know how hard it is to open up to you since you have your own problems to deal with. Let me make it clear to you in other words, it's easy to drop college and to find a job that will pay you good but never good enough. It's easy to let your parents take care of you but they won't last forever. It's not only about college or about how many mistakes you've made. It's all about you and how much are you willing to go or to do to achieve what you want. I live my life regretting one choice I didn't make right and I know you enough to say you hate giving up and I assure you, you're  not willing to regret a choice you've made out of childish thinking. Life is never easy and this is only the beginning of what coming next, if you stopped believing in yourself you won't be able to live a healthy life full of achievements. Stop making people decide for you whether you can or you can't. stop letting them break you down with so many failures. Never regret failing it's nothing but a way to reach what you want and remember success worth it all."


I may never see this guy again and I may never be able to thank him for sharing his story with me. But I believe he opened up for me because he knew how that would help me to make a good decision about my future life. He inspired me and motivated me to do more than giving up and he opened my eyes on so many things I never saw before. He taught me that life is full of obstacles and there's no shame about failure.

I wish him nothing but all the best in life and I wish for his children to make him proud. He's honestly one of the most great fathers.

Have Faith in Your Prayers


Hello hello. Today's post is going to be a positive message to myself and to everyone finds something inspiring in it. I've been extremely negative lately and that needs to be changed. I finally managed to focus on the bright side of my life and that helped a lot to be less worried and more happy. I found my way out of all the negativity I've been carrying around through prayers. I know it's nothing new but I'll share my personal experience anyway.

As a lady I have my time when I get so upset over basically nothing at all. There's nothing wrong with that, it's okay to feel sad sometimes and to share that with your favorite person. Luckily, I have quite a lot of these people in my life. But sometimes it feels so deep that words can't describe how I feel anymore, sometimes life gets so hard on me and I don't feel like sharing anymore. All what I need at that moment is something stronger than letting all my feelings out to somebody that might get upset for me or get annoyed because of me.

 I found a way to release everything in my heart out without getting worried about anything. I started a while a go to let everything out in my prayers, my feelings, thoughts, dreams and hopes, everything. I tried to be a better person than I was, a better Muslim than I used to be. That helped me to focus on the things that I want the most in my life. I started praying for my dreams to be true and for my sorrows to be vanished, I can assure you it gets better every time.  I started praying for myself and for everyone in my life and that helped me to be much better and it filled my heart with joy and happiness.

I know my prayers will take time before they happen but I'm willing to wait for it as long as it takes. I have faith that everything I prayed for will come true, maybe not today or tomorrow but eventually. I know I make a lot of mistakes and maybe some of you will think it's not going to happen to anybody but only those who do good things. Well, if you really believe that you need to realize that Allah take it all, from those who make plenty of mistakes and those who have done none at all (which they don't actually exist).

Since I started my new thing, I've noticed that my life finally has a meaning, I've been so much better and I really like the way I feel. I believe everything will be just fine and better than I ever imagined. I don't have to worry anymore about anything at all but I still have those moments when I get worried or when I overthink or overanalyze things in my life. I still have them but with better vision on what's coming next. I stopped being that terrified woman although it gets into me rarely. My panic attacks started to get better, I don't have them whenever I have to present something in public (I still hate public speeches though) but everything is getting better. I also started to feel more comfortable with my failures and I finally made peace with them.

I believe that every failure I had in my life since I was a little girl made me the person who I am today and at the moment I'm comfortable with who I am. I used to have no regrets but for a short period in my life I've been regretting quite a lot of things and now I believe they just meant to happen for some reason. Although I don't see clearly how my life is going to be like or how many times I'm going to fail before I reach what I want but I believe that since my life is in the hands of Allah then why should I be worried? There's no reason to be worried at all.
 
As a human being, I know sometimes it's hard to have faith in things you don't actually see and people sometimes get annoyed for not having what they want after so many prayers. But always remember if it's meant to be, it will be. If you prayed for something and it took so much time don't give up on it. It will happen, have faith in Allah and everything will be just fine. Don't underestimate Allah's power for achieving what you want, trust Allah with your life and with everything you have.

Too polite to be accepted!

 

Hello hello. Guess what? Another post about me complaining. Exciting huh! Well, this time is not so different from the last time I complained but the topic is a little weird. I'm sorry if there's anyone reading my posts secretly and got bored of all the negativity I'm sending. My life is clearly full of idiots.
 
Obviously, it's pretty important to be nice with people whether you know them or not, whether they're nice to you or not. At least that what my mother taught me! But recently I've got some complaining about being "too nice" or "too polite" with people! Apparently, its trendy to be rude and unfortunately I didn't know that. One of my friends told me once that she really hates it when I'm being polite to her. She hates my good morning/good night texts. She hates how's your day going texts and all that kind of texts! She told me to stop being too nice because that was killing her. That was a little offensive but don't worry I didn't take it. I thought .maybe she's on her period or something 
 
I was extremely nice to her because that is what my mom taught me to be (I didn't say that to her though). The thing is, I'm trying to be very nice with people not because I'm desperate for them to like me or I'm so in love with them but because I hate it when people be so rude to me sometimes. I'm nice with them because this is the way I want them to treat me. Can't you get that? It's pretty simple, I'm good with you which means there will be no reason for you to be rude with me unless you're a bully or something. Not to mention those who actually take my compliments literally and start being cocky for some weird reason. 
 
I just can't get it, why can't they just be nice for a change? We only live ONE LIFE. Is it that hard for them to accept the good in people and try to ignore or change (if it's possible) the bad in them? Does what they do or say really matter after they all pass away? All what we're going to leave behind us is nothing but memories, the good and the bad ones. Don't be a bully or a jerk unless you want to be remembered this way. Be polite and kind to everybody it's really not gonna coast you a thing.
 
 I wish if they could understand that I want nothing to do with them by being too nice. All what I really want is to be remembered by everybody with good things. I want to wipe their tears and to make them smile, that would make me feel amazing. I want them to be inspired by me to do good things and to feel comfortable with me. I want my friends to stop worrying about the world and to complain to me about what made them cry the other night or how much pressure they've been taken lately. I want to be that kind of person. Everyone needs to know their value and I'm willing to tell them how much I appreciate their existence in my life. I'm willing to remind them how much I love them every morning and every night. I only have this life and after I die no one would send them that long messages on behave of me to remind them how much I loved them and cared about them.



Apparently some of them used to hate it, I'm not actually sure whether they hate that kind of texts or they just didn't want them to be sent by me. Either way, it's really hard to be refused, dumbed or judged for nothing but being extra nice. I feel like I'm running out of options here, I'm sick of trying my best to be good with everybody equally and being judged for that too. It feels like they have nothing else to do but judge me and complain about whatever I'm doing. Should I stop being nice to them or should I cut them out of my life?  

Seriously, why always people find something to hate, judge or complain about me? Am I that bad? What have I done to them to make them say nasty things about me? What made them think that I hate for them to have a good life or to be happy? I wish if I could know. I seriously have no idea why am I stuck in that dark spot of people hate. Give me a chance to show you how good I am without judging me in the middle of it. Give me a way out and I promise, you won't regret it. Give me some credit for being nothing but nice to you although you hate it. I'm sick of cutting people out of my life. I used to have lots of friends and now I'm left with few of them I hope they last forever..
 
And you know what kills me the most is that they all know it deep down that I won't do a thing to hurt them. they all know that I wish them nothing but all the happiness in the world. I'm 100% sure they know how much I loved them, respected them and cared about them.

All of a sudden I feel like I'm trapped in the middle of nowhere waiting for that day when I finally leave all of this behind. Maybe I should've ended my toxic relationships with them before it got into me. I feel like I'm letting them take the best out of me and I'm seriously thinking to stop fixing what's already broken. I'll definitely try to stop being friends with anyone doesn't appreciate me enough.

Xx

Mr. Right


Hello hello. Well, I'm a bit confused and annoyed recently. There are a lot of people trying to convince me to get married. I wrote this post to reveal my true feelings and to say the things I should've said to them but obviously I didn't. Yay ;( 

As we all know, it's difficult to find the right person while we're surrounded with the wrong ones. And to be quite honest it's really hard to pick which one worth the trouble since they all share the stupid gene, or maybe most of them to be fair.

Since I'm 23, marriage is the number one topic everyone around me talks about! To them, it's quite abnormal to be unmarried yet, I either have a serious problem that prevent me to get married or I'm too ugly for anybody to look at me. It's hard to convince them that I'm waiting for the one and only. In their narrow minds, every man on earth is the one and only unless he has no money/job or family.

They find it difficult to believe that a woman can be independent, can have a career and a life without involving men in it. Honestly, life would be much easier without all the drama, without trying to please that guy or the society around you. If he's not the one DON'T even think about him.

I see lots of women suffer with their husbands but they won't get divorce for similar reasons. They either have children they don't want to hurt or they can't handle being divorced in such a cruel society. These are the main reasons that most women share. It's either very stupid or really stupid to be stuck in unhealthy relationship for reasons that can be fixed after they fix their broken hearts. I'm not saying divorce is the right thing to do, I'm only saying if he's not the right one don't bother to be with him. Leaving him is much easier than involving yourself in a relationship you wont be happy in, a life that would be hard to fix just to please everyone around you. Dont do it unless you want to, unless you're willing to take all the risks and never regret it.

Another thing to mention, most of those women who suffer the most with their miserable lives are the ones who judge the unmarried ones. I've noticed that they put a lot of effort to convince the unmarried women that marriage is the answer to their prayers.  
 

Maybe they think it's the best thing  to have children, to be a mother and wife but not all women share the same dreams. Not all of us women want that kind of life. If I know I'm not good near children or if I'm not good with men or maybe I'm not going to be a good housewife and that life would kill me then why in the world would I bother myself and get married just to please the people around me or just to stop them from judging me?

Not to mention, they won't stop judging anyway! It's annoying and honestly it's driving me insane. I've got lots of question on why I'm still single yet and why I refuse to get married. They even said that I'm really stupid and childish for waiting my prince charming because he's not even exist! Alright, that was too much for me to take. I don't like hurting people but in that moment I was gonna do it anyway. Thank god I did not!

Most of those people can't get it, me and some of the other singles want nothing to do with men. I can live a perfect, healthy and  successful life that is full of achievements and happiness without my prince charming involve in it. If he's meant to be I will find him, if not, it won't be the end of the world or my world for that matter.

Living a healthy life, being happy and successful is all what matter. It doesn’t have to be so hard for everyone in my life to accept the things I want, they don’t have to judge me on what I want because it's different from what they want. I don’t have to be like what they want to be accepted. If you want me as a friend or as a daughter accept me for who I am. I'm happy this way and if you ever cared about me stop worrying that I might envy you for being married and I'm not. It never crossed my mind at all because I'm not that person, if I want something so badly and you got it before I do be sure that I'm more than happy for you. That doesn’t apply only on marriage but anything else in life. I'm quite happy with my life the way it is and marriage is the last thing I want and I want to get it my way not yours to be normal in your eyes. Don’t think less of me because I'm not like you, you have your life the way you want and I have mine. We don't have to be the same to accept each other, yes I'm different and weird sometimes but you either take it or leave it. And just so you know, I won't settle for less to please anyone other than myself. You better do the same for you own good!

Fears of the Unknown

Hello ladies. (If there's anyone reading my post other than my best friend)

Well, since I have trouble in sleeping I thought I would post something instead of moving my head side to side in attempt to find my way to sleep. Ah! 

Well, recently I'm having serious fears about my future since I know nothing about obviously. I spent most of my nights thinking a lot and trying to figure out a way, a plan or whatever that could help me to have a little control over it. Although I believe that no matter what I do now  won't particularly happen in the future (unless Allah has planned it for me). I know that by heart and that's what keeping me sane! But I'm trying to calm myself a little bit by knowing what would I do after I graduate. I had my share with failures and repeating the same mistakes terrifies me. So that control I'm looking for is basically a little something to relief my worried mind and my broken soul (that was deep! :$ ). 

I can assure you that I have no clue what I'm gonna do next in my life but I know it wont be nothing. What really scares me, is that I'm not sure whether its gonna be something big that might keep me up for several nights working on it or small that might also keep me up for my entire life regretting my choice. I don't want to sound pathetic but its not easy for me to know what I really want to make in my life or to make for a living. I'm not only looking for big, i'm also looking for something that could help me to be creative. Something that suits me so I can do my best at it. 

Moreover, I'm pretty annoying person! I get bored of doing the same things over and over. I used to love literature and writing but at the moment I'm not so much into it. Now I feel like I really want to be a lawyer and be helpful to people but I'm scared I might lose my interest in that too. I also love makeup and I'm seriously thinking to develop myself in it. I have different things that I want and they share nothing in common. I'm not sure whether it's a good thing or I really need to get my shit together and decide what works best for me. Maybe in the end I want them all at the same time! You know, nothing is impossible. 

After all, no matter how many nights I waste on thinking nothing will magically happen to me unless I work for it.
