كما قال ابو عبيدة
انه لجهاد …نصر او استشهاد
كتاب الشهيد عز الدين القسام!
i. there is nothing more comforting than crying to God and whispering His name over and over.
ii. saying sorry makes you the strong one.
iii. sometimes even your best friends won’t be there to pick you up. you need to learn to rely solely on yourself, but also learn that it’s okay to ask for help when you need it.
iv. crying does not make you weak. and keeping it all bottled up inside hurts no one but you.
v. your faith will pull you through.
vi. there’s always a silver lining. always. you just have to look a little bit harder for it sometimes.
vii. miracles happen."
— 7 lessons i learned this past week [15/08/14 - 21/08/14] (via khadlja)
the “you live with your parents” insult is really flaccid because a metric shitton of cultures don’t see “leave the house forever” as some grandiose moment of liberation that’s so important to the development of a person that it has to happen as fast as possible. until i came to the USA i didn’t know a single person who was pressured by their parents to leave the house because they’re “too old to stay there” or whatever. in puerto rico it is really common to stay with your parents until they and you are both stable enough that you can leave. whaddaya know, there are cultures that don’t place a stigma on being poor or wanting to care for your family or needing your family to care for you for some other reason.
When I was in the hospital
I was roomed with a schizophrenic
And she was the most gentle person I have ever met
There was a boy with a long deep slit across his neck
Who told very funny jokes
A girl who never spoke a word
Would draw the most beautiful pictures
The boy who shook with anxiety
Could hold the most intelligent conversations
Even the girl who screamed in her sleep and picked at her skin
Had a heart the size of the ocean
We are not who you think we are
