a thread;
Our parents are often misunderstood.

when mom comes and sits in your room, she isn't invading your personal space. sometimes, she's just trying to escape her own thoughts.
when dad wakes you up early in the morning and takes you to buy groceries, he is just trying to bond with you, in his own way.
Every time mom asks you, "what are you smiling at?" when you are using your phone, she isn't being nosy. she just wants to be a part of your life, because the two of you barely talk anymore.
Every time dad asks, "Where are you going?", I know it feels like an investigation, but I suppose, he just wants to know. we often share our live location with our friends, but how often do we share it with our parents?
You know, mom doesn't hate 'Restaurant's food', she hates that she had cooked food for you, but you ordered instead. and when she cooks your favourite meal, all she hopes to hear you say is, 'it's tasty!
Dad will say things like, "I earn for you all", but grunt if you buy books or more clothes. dads are weird that way, but I suppose, , he just wants you to spend wisely. growing up, he has struggled, and he understands the value of money.
I know, I know, there's a generation gap, but let's not forget, while we are growing up, they are growing older too. they are humans too, and just like us, our parents can feel lonely and are misunderstood.
I guess, all that we can do is listen to them.

A word with such power but yet it's so simple. A word which is filled with such meaning, but it's meaning transcripts wrongly by all whom perceive it.
Tons of words are used to describe beauty, but none truly says what needs to be said.
"Beauty" isn't a dagger to be used to stab another. "Beauty" isn't a hammer to destroy someone's wall of confidence.
Beauty! A word filled with so much meaning to bring everyone together. A word to be used to show love ; to show love to those who are in need of them.

A mother's love.

How wonderful it is to be blessed with such unconditional love, a love that knows no bounds.
As many of us have been blessed with such love, we have to remember that there are people who haven't not to compare ourselves to them but to realize the worth of such blessing.
We all have to remember that The Prophet Mohammad ﷺ was an orphan child, his father died before his birth and his mother died when he was very young.
Yet, there were people who fulfilled such places, and one of them was Fatimah Bint Asad,

I’m 'Slowly' Learning That I Don’t Have To React To 'Everything' That Bothers Me.

I’m slowly learning that I don’t have to hurt those who hurt me.

I’m slowly learning that maybe the 'ultimate' sign of maturity is walking away instead of getting even.
I’m slowly learning that the energy it takes to react to every bad thing that happens to you drains you and stops you from seeing the other good things in life.
