Letter to my best friend. 

Dear best friend,We haven’t exactly been what they call the ideal `best friends forever’, but we have been with each other through thick and thin. You have seen me evolve. Remember the day when that stupid boy insulted me, and I was so adamant on sticking around with him, it was you who pulled me out of that toxic relationship. You laughed when I cried, … Continue reading Letter to my best friend. 

What is humanity without hope and compassion?

About four years ago, when the video of a baby boy sitting calmly inside an ambulance after a bomb blast in the capital of Syria went viral, I remember very clearly, I wept the entire night.

FORGIVE OR FORGET-Which is easier?

Takes a lot of strength to forgive someone who has cut you like a sharp knife. The truth is you can never be the same towards them again. Never.

But it … Continue reading FORGIVE OR FORGET-Which is easier?

Can you live your life in despair and sadness thinking you are not good enough, just because someone else thinks that you are not ? They don’t follow a rule book made by you and your standards. So why should you ? Can … Continue reading Self love and acceptance.

Overcoming negativity.

Today marks 10,000 HITS on my blog, Alhumdullilaah! A lot of people have told me, straight away, that they don’t like what I write, or they don’t like my writing style. Some even say I don’t make much sense. You can imagine far worse things being said behind my back ! But I always ask myself this- Should I believe them and waste my time … Continue reading Overcoming negativity.
