Sometimes being honest is hard to do it especially when it comes to yourself. Emotions make the whole process even harder! :( One minute you're "feeling" one way and the next it the total opposite. That's why you have to make a concrete decision with your mind first then the emotions follow. Allah controls the heart & everything else and that in itself is the best reassurance one could ask for, Al-Hamdulilah.
- Stop following "feelings" -emotions, egos, pride
- Stop following "friends"
- Stop following "whats cool"
I know how I feel will just pass and I will remain with what I have. So I have to develop a critical eye to what is suitable & would cause the best outcome. I don't want to just go through life I want to get the most out of it. I want to truly live and if that makes a person selfish so let it be. A person must be confident and strong within themselves before they can pursue any dream. -Constantly look back and see if whatever that may be is still what you want.
I'm in a weird stage in my life. I'm in this in between, finding/creating myself. Going through the waves and seeing what keeps me a float. May Allah guide me through these words and duas. && guide the rest of the Ummah. Ameen.
