Mahmud was a very pious man, but he was not very attractive looking. one day, he was walking along the road, minding his own business, when a lady came up to him, and started calling him names and abusing him. this lady kept saying all kinds of nasty things, and mahmud just listened to her patiently. finally, when she was finished calling him names and abusing him, mahmud just greeted her, smiled, and said "and a nice day to you," and continued on his way.
why did mahmud, the pious man, behave this way?
it is because he knew that everything she said was just a reflection of her own inner self.
if you use bad language, you are just making obvious to everybody how far away you really are from allah, since your words are in reality a reflection of your own inner self
Your own self worth and peace of mind are far more important than humouring someone else's opinion or falling in line for the sake of making things look right from the outside.
people pleasing can lead to self dissatisfaction and low self esteem.
every family has a black sheep and a scapegoat or as i like to think of them, a free thinking, free spirited, independent person with enough self respect and self worth to be who they are and not merely what they are expected to be.
be your authentic self always, this life is your's, don't make yourself small to fit into someone else's box 💖💖💖 #loveyourselffirst#intuition#forgive#beautifulsouls#beauthentic#
