“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.

It’s amazing, words. One word has so much power. Words have the power to hurt sometimes even kill. Who was the person who said sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me? And seriously what was he/she smoking?
They affect everyone, people are branded like cattle because of these words. Ugly, stupid, bitch- everyone’s been called it and most of the time for no particular reason.
I honestly don’t believe in labelling people because I know what it feels like.
Labels, stereotypes, whatever you call them. It changes people after a while they it into these stereotypes and turn into these labels because they start to believe it. I’m not saying words are wrong but they can be used in a negative way.
Im a realist and I know that these labels will never stop but honestly don’t pay attention to them. I know it’s not easy especially if your in school because this is where they are most used. People can be vicious and if we forget about the people that bring us down then we can do whatever we want. I’m not saying its easy to but its worth a shot. If I was still scared about what people may say then I wouldn’t be writing this- I’m done being afraid.
