Struggle and Bad Everywhere

Salam everyone. I’m struggling with a hard time in my life. I’m a teenager and I feel like everything is coming out at once, every obstacle. For one thing, my parents fight every night, then they fight with me, etc. My mother shouts everyday for no reason at all, maybe a dirty dish here and ... Read More

Am I lesbian?…..

Hello everyone, I am writing this because I have bottled this for soooo long that  I can no longer keep it inside. I feel like I might not be interested in the guys for marriage due to my attraction to women. The problem is that I practice my religion very strictly and it is wrong ... Read More

Men

I need to stop being so suspicious of men in my assumptions that they’re going to hurt me. In my eyes, any man has the potential to be abusive, even the ones I trust wholeheartedly. I see it as only a matter of time before they snap, before they assault me, which makes me ache ... Read More

Denial

Sometimes we grow blind to the horror of our own experiences because we survived them. We no longer feel them. We become muted to our own torture. Yet when we share these abuses with others, their reactions are surprising. We are amazed that anyone could consider our trials to have been horrific. We are shocked when ... Read More
 

The little girl who survives..

 There was a girl when she was like 5 or 6, she was wronged by her neighbour who was so kind to her family.. his age was about her fathers age. For so many evenings or noon, he lured her to some quiet place sometimes in his house and did his disgusting thing to her . ... Read More

Life is hard…and Wonderful

You don’t yet know what wonderful gifts you have to give. All those people around you that look so together are not. You have only begun life as an adult with the power to choose. We all make bad choices on occasion. Sometimes even in the name of faith. The pain of feeling like you ... Read More

Confused

Hello All, I really needed to vent so here it is. I’m 18 and a hijabi, and while some Muslims my age date, I have always had a firm stance to not partake in it. However, now that I’m in college it has become increasingly difficult. Who doesn’t love attention? And constantly being complimented? And ... Read More

Culture of Addiction

Loving one person and being loved by that person is the most important thing for your happiness, or even life. We hear this everyday. We see this everywhere, so regularly that the thought begins to come to us without our even being aware of it. And it’s so hard to escape this concept when you’re ... Read More
