The World Is Suffering
So much is going on in this world that I feel so sad like when I see innocent people suffering due to terrorism, genocide, racism etc. This is the case where people who have done no wrong are suffering. The major question is why? And nobody is going to answer this why and this is the thing that I am afraid of.
No Matter How Small, An Achievement Should Always Be Confident!
Everyone in this world is trying their best to contribute a teensy bit in this huge world with an ocean of knowledge. Some of us achieve the brownie points, while the others remain deprived until the right time. However, we all get paid for whatever contribution we make for the betterment of this world. Why are people trying to humiliate and belittle the efforts that others are making every day?
Being There For Me
I'll even tell them I agree with them because I no longer feel the need to defend myself in the face of people who aren't even willing to listen to what I have to say. If they can't trust me and accept me and acknowledge me for who and what I am and for what I give to them selflessly, I'm not going to force them to. I'll step away, back off, and they won't even realize I've done so.
Hey, I Am Average, What's Your Superpower?
As we all know, this era is fast and modern, and we should be smart like our cell phones and perform well on every manifesto of work, as mother, as a daughter, as a co-worker, as a wife, and as a reliable woman of society, but in all these processes, we’ve lost ourselves. We need to pause everything (like everything) to get that young, free spirited, beautiful, strong girl back in form.
Dawn of the Ugly Era of Comparisons
This world deserves so much better than what actually is happening right now. Our people need love, kindness, and a reminder that whoever they are, wherever they live, whatever they believe in, they should learn to own their identity, their body, their origin, and learn to love themselves.
An Open Letter To Everyone Who Thinks 'Periods' To Be A Curse!
"We have empowered the girls" said the society. But not as empowered as to talk boldly about their periods, sighed the whispers in the black plastic. Why do we treat sanitary pads as a radioactive isotope? Why are they wrapped with newspaper and black plastics?
Relations Which Matter
In this world full of selfish minded people, don't dare to leave a person who loves you unconditionally. Those rare gems will make your life easy and will give you strength whenever you will encounter tough times. Keep your own tribe close to you even if a little bit drifting starts taking place!
The Indifferent Humans
Why is that that in spite of sharing the same sky, the same sun rays, and the same air, we remain indifferent of one another? What makes it more unbelievable is that we hate some people just for a simple reason which is not even their fault! Why do we think that we are superior to others just because we are from a major religion and the other is not; or because we are straight and they are from LGBTQ+ community; or just for the silliest reason - for you being a man and the other a woman!
Pseudo Female Friendship Stereotypes & Why We are Ditching Them
We live in a time where female friendships are expected to be toxic, bitchy and/or competitive. That is the power the media has in shaping perceptions, something I think they take very lightly, or not? I do not mean that some women are not bitchy or toxic or competitive sometimes BUT these characteristics are not the defining factor of what female friendships should be like.
Maybe you’re supposed to be studying right now but you’re reading this, maybe a lot of your work is unresolved but you’re watching re-runs of your favorite show, maybe you have errands to complete but you just can’t find the will to get work done. We spend so much time believing we’re feeling nothing, doing nothing when we’re doing so many little things together. We’ve trained our minds into believing that we have to be productive at every single waking moment.
New Life: A Series
Here I am on a plane miles away from home, relocating! What exactly had I thought taking a job that I am not even sure I can keep? Who was I trying to prove something to? Was it myself? Or family? Or Saleem? It'd sure be pleasant to show that good for nothing fool who I turned out to be. I mean I'm no longer the, "I'm sorry" type, whether I had made the mistake or not. I'm more of the "why doth my God try me with imbeciles" type!
It's all about the next step
Everyone encounters bad phases in their lives. There is no one in the world who is altogether living a perfectly happy life. Everyone has his or her own set of problems. There are many people who are born with a silver spoon but it doesn’t mean that they’ll not encounter any hardship in their life. Survive today because life is all about the next step.
Born in a family of fair-complexioned women, I was always insecure of my dusky complexion as a kid. It never really bothered me, until one day, my friend in school pointed out the difference in mine and my sister’s complexions. Now I didn’t know it mattered so much and I couldn’t answer her back, so I just kept quiet. The song “Mai aisa kyu hu” kept ringing in my head till the end of school that day.
