The limitations that are put on me are there with good intentions. Plus, at the end of the day, I choose whether or not I follow through with those limitations. So I respect that and try my best to be good. :D
If I liked someone that isn’t Muslim and if they returned the love for me - then they can also love my religion too. It’s up to them still.
You don’t need anyone’s affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn’t actually about you. It’s about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don’t have to internalize that. Your worth isn’t contingent upon other people’s acceptance of you — it’s something inherent.
You exist, and therefore, you matter. You’re allowed to voice your thoughts and feelings. You’re allowed to assert your needs and take up space. You’re allowed to hold onto the truth that who you are is exactly enough. And you’re allowed to remove anyone from your life who makes you feel otherwise.
