Allah subhana wa taala said: ‘If you never felt pain or experienced problems, how would you know I’m the Healer? If you never made a mistake, how would you know I’m the Forgiver? If you were never hurt, how would you know I’m the Comforter? If your life was perfect, then why would you need Me?Hadith Qudsi (via rabbrakha)
Yesterday I was watching this show with a girl who had a skin disorder. Basically, her skin was losing pigmentation so parts of her skin turned white. Her husband, and inlaws rejected her. Thought it was some disease. She raised her child alone. This was based on a true story. Anyways, it actually broke my heart. This woman was not being accepted because of the way she looked. How many people within this society would have actually tried to look beyond her disorder? How many would have even accepted her? It’s just eating me up inside.
It would be nice to sometimes be prioritized. To be needed and necessary. To not feel so alone. It would be nice.
No one in my family, not one of my friends or classmates realized that I was going through life asleep.
It was literally true: I was going through life asleep. My body had no more feeling than a drowned corpse. My very existence, my life in the world, seemed like a hallucination. A strong wind would make me think my body was about to be blown to the end of the earth, to some land I had never seen or heard of, where my mind and body would separate forever. ‘Hold tight,’ I would tell myself, but there was nothing for me to hold on to.
There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.Maya Angelou (via feellng)
