Hello everyone! Nabeeha Jameel here, back with a post before you can finally take the weekends off! I have been frustrated lately, to say the least, a few more days and July would have gone by. The past year and a half has been quite a traumatizing one, thanks to Covid-19! It’s been hard not only for me but for many of you out there. One gloomy afternoon I was scrolling to Pinterest and whenever I am upset I like reading quotes, in a way they make me feel better, here are a few that I could relate to.
Such a relatable one isn’t it? I have known myself for 15+ years and no matter how many times I try to not let people’s opinions get to me, they, unfortunately, do at times. I am not too sure, but I feel that South-Asians seem to criticize and judge people more than any other regional beings I have met, being a girl, makes it harder. You are expected to have this personality, that simply does not exist. Nice to the aunties. Playful with the children. Chatty with the teens. And my goodness, silence is frowned upon, people think you are proud. It never occurs to them that you might simply be shy. I have learnt to ignore everything over the years. The pandemic has made it easier, I can contact people who are positive and help me progress and not people who like to drag me down no matter what.
If you have read my Gravatar profile description, then this quote won’t come as too much of a surprise for you. What my gravatar profile says: A little girl in a huge world, who loves a bit of rambling, baking, a lot of creating and crafting and has plenty more space in her heart, for pink and glitter! A blogger and student in the morning, and a dreamer at night. I have always been a dreamer, and my dreams are what eventually turn into goals. Many people tend to frown at the word “dreamer”, it’s in no way a negative word. Dreamers are like the quote says, people who work, if you don’t have dreams you don’t have much of a motivation to work. My dreams propel me towards fully embracing myself and nailing every little thing I want to nail. Simply, dreamers are hard workers.
This is soo me right now! It’s time for my exams! At some point in your life, you will for sure be thrown into a situation similar to the quote. I read To Kill A Mockingbird recently, and this quote could perfectly apply to Atticus when he had to defend Tom Robinson.
I think I came out in this state when my mom gave birth to me. From day one- or to make it clearer from the day I was conscious of myself and my existence- I liked proving people wrong. They tell me I can’t do it? Guess what? I do it. When people tell you that you can’t do something, it motivates you to prove them wrong. People like dragging others down, only a few in this world will genuinely care about you achieving the “unachievable”. If you feel that what your doing is for your betterment, keep doing it.
The smallest things can indeed make your day. I am an observer, to say the least, I love staring at nature, and cherishing the small things in life! And I must say not many people are like me.
That is it for today’s blog post! Hope you enjoyed reading the quotes I can relate to at the moment. See you soon!
