You could look up to people that show no emotions, saying that they have the strongest of hearts. Or, you could realize that their hearts are barely pumping enough life to get them through the day.

You cannot let another person’s inability to see the greatness in you, stop you from continuing to become something great. You are your own journey, your value only increases with time.

Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.
Kurt Vonnegut (via letskeeplifesimple)
Too often, Islam is portrayed as something like a religious country club - exclusive, like it’s a religion only for the “perfect” people. It’s not. Islam is for broken people. To mend hearts and heal souls.

You do not have to understand someone in order to respect them. People do not always have to explain themselves in order for you to feel like their actions are well meant. They will never owe that to you, or anyone else. You have to learn to trust others, and let God take care of you.

You should be treated like a clock, with every second of you being appreciated, as you are delicate on time. Anyone that treats you like a stopwatch does not understand that you are a limited edition, full of priceless worth.

You will find yourself content with life, when you realize you do not need a reason to say “alhamdulilah.” You say it because you’ve made it this far, and that is enough for you to be thankful for.

Be the one that restores a person’s faith in people, regardless of how small of an act it might be. All a person needs is a drop of faith to keep them going.

Don’t be ashamed of yourself for making mistakes. Mistakes are meant to teach you life. You are wise because of your experiences.
