You know what I find really weird things said by Plato, Aristotle, Shakespeare still apply to this day and age about life, happiness, love and greed.
Yet we stress on how advance we are and how far we have become, was this because our morality was to suffice?
I notice a lot of things, especially the ones that people think go unnoticed. Slight change in tone, quick reflex to cover any raw emotions, the way their hands sit, how they look at someone. I just dont say anything, guess thats why I come off so detached.
One of the most fulfilling things I love doing, Is watching someone talk about their passion. Just sit back, watch and take it in. The slow build of conversation, the frantic thoughts their mind goes through going from one thought to another. Trying to voice all their opinions, worries, happiness and sadness. Their hand movements, back and forth up and down. Their facial expressions trying to keep up with every perplexed thought.
That’s a sight worth watching, igniting something from the soul and watching it give flame while they speak.
So the story of that lady who tried on the hijab for a few hours and went to the mall and was called a “terrorist” by a little girl, yeah I have some thoughts on that.
1. Initially although no harm was done in the whole advocating of Muslim women’s rights and this was her way of understanding, just stop. You tried this on for a few hours, this is our identity, we live through that and worse everyday of our lives. It’s a commitment to ourselves, so please don’t speak about the struggles of Muslim women for a few hours when you’re not even a Muslim, listen to us.
2. All the backlash from it some people put it very poignantly and it was understandable. Other people however wanted to call her out on the very facts shes white, her views,opinions and very actions are all because she’s an ignorant white. Please don’t start with that “white isnt a race therefore you can’t be racist” bullshit. No it’s a race, and you’re actions are racist as stated in the Quran “An Arab is no better than a non-Arab and a non-Arab is no better than a Arab.
It’s cool how you can tell various people the same thing and receive all these different responses.
I hate distance. I hate the struggle that comes with distance. But I know it’s the distance that makes finally seeing you so damn worth it.
when you talk to someone and they make you feel so little like an innocent child to the harsh realms of the world. they’re so certain in every choice that they’ve made and they have plans for their plans, goals for every aspect of their life. Then there’s you, who seriously can’t decide between anything and isn’t sure about anything happening in their life. You know you’re not wrong for feeling so, just i guess inadequate adding to those previous feelings.
What if we were actually born into a different family, a different era, century, generation. How different would things be. Would we be any different or the same person with the same ideals, philosophies and dreams.
You meet people along life whether shortly, majority or the whole of your life. But each person leaves some sort of impact on you. And you think to yourself maybe it’s really not so coincidental we knew each other.
i have a massive urge to drop out of school, delete my facebook and tumblr, throw my phone out the window and get on a train to somewhere random and just go on a massive adventure
One things that scares me about marriage (if I ever reach there inshaAllah) is itll die and whither quickly. It’s a bore, fighting everyday, no mutual agreement or friendliness, no love there really. I understand in any relationship there will be arguments. But there’s just so many broken marriages around me, it’s gotten to the point they can’t even be bothered fixing it, they’ll jut leave it as it is. Theres marriages were they don’t even care about each other, they jut put their love towards the kids. I guess we all want at least something ideal but as I’m told it only last a year. It’s just heartbreaking, it’s your soulmate the one that youre suppose to find yourself with, aim for Paradise together.
