Believe in Something

“If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything.”
— Malcolm X

If you strip away someone’s beliefs what are they left with? You would be taking their faith, morals, and ultimately their self. Beliefs are what shapes people it makes them who they are. My belief has influenced throughout my life and has taught me so many things. I’m a Muslim and I’m proud. It has helped me to develop all through my life and has showed me that not everything is one sided. There are so many ways to look at something and my religion has taught me this and appreciate it. I write to express myself and I’m not going to let anyone take that away from me.

The reason I’m saying this is because I honestly believe that my beliefs have made me the person I am and I will never regret it.
People discriminate against religions but I honestly don’t believe they have a right to mock someone’s beliefs. If someone believes something what someone else says don’t matter.

I think beliefs mean a lot. It may not be a religion but belief in hope, justice or morals.

Comment in what you believe in and never let anyone say otherwise.
Thanks for reading.

Fairy tales

“I know she’s shy. I know she doesn’t have very many friends. I just want her to be strong, you know? To be able to face the world for what it is. That’s why I don’t encourage the fairy tales. I don’t want to set her up to believe in this ‘dreams come true’ nonsense.”-Robert

Those things in which we hoped for in life only to realise in pure disappointment that they didn’t exist. I think that fairy tales are great but it’s almost like people are setting you up for disappointment. Personally I don’t believe in fairy tales. I believe in “once upon a time”s but not “they lived happily ever after”s because they simply don’t exist. They’re a great story but that’s all they’re stories.

I have a story to share which inspired me to write this.
“Once upon a time there lived a lady who did everything right she was nice, sweet, respectful and just great. Still people took advantage of her good nature and walked all over her.
Several years later just as she got her enemies to turn into allies she realised that she couldn’t have kids but never did she get knocked down so she got a baby not hers but she loved this baby. She was a devoted mother and just as she gained happiness she got bad news.
She was ill, this was a roller coaster ride and just when everything looked like it was going to be okay, it wasn’t.
Nothing worked and her last couple of weeks she couldn’t even say goodbye to her beautiful child because she couldn’t talk. She couldn’t give her child a hug because she was able to move. No closure no nothing just that. No happily ever after just that.”

I don’t believe that Prince Charming will whisk a girl off in her time of need because he’s just a spoilt brat too busy fixing his hair. Nor do I think that a knight in shining armour will come and ride a girl off in the sunset. I believe that good people deserve this happily ever after but it doesn’t happen. Sure they’ll be some stories that restore your faith in these tales but they are short lived. It’s a cynical view but I’m not going to wait in a tower for someone to rescue me from this.
