marry a guy who has sisters because he’s seen the female in her natural state therefore won’t have any unrealistic expectations of you
When someone harms you, even if it is a deep wound, forgive them. Forgive them not for their sake, but as a sign of gratitude to Allah. Why you ask? For making you the victim and not the oppressor.
There is no crime in being a victim, rather it brings you closer to Allah and rids you of sins. But as for the oppressor, they’ll have to face their Lord one day. So in reality, they are their own greatest victims"

Kat Graham’s visit to Syrian refugee families in Jordan for the UNHCR
"When you think of refugees you often think of people rendered powerless,” she said. “But when I think of the people I’ve met, I think of qualities that I aspire to have. These are people making lemonade out of lemons, building fountains in front of their caravans with rocks from the desert because it reminds them of home, marshalling every last spirit of enterprise and innovation that runs deep in their veins to support the ones they care for most. I see new depths of love, commitment to family, community spirit and generosity – incredible values that we can all learn from."
