wow i was just looking through my old gmail account from my old blog and my old life and old wounds (just cos i was looking for logans baby photos) and i came across so many things from my divorce, while my soon to be husband is sleeping next to me and… i feel so lucky not to be in that. i feel so fucking blessed that things have changed so much for me. like yeah, i miss my old muslim community and things but my life now is so worth it. i never thought that the world would allow me to be this happy, that that heaviness in my chest would ever go away, that i wouldn’t be hurting myself, that i could feel this much love in my life. not just from my man but my family and friends. its incredible how much things change. all i can say is alhamdulilah, and even then i can’t say that enough.
children in middle eastern countries are being killed in front of their parents eyes, black children get shot for no real reason and we still have white people on tumblr talking about how white children are ‘oppressed’ because their school doesnt allow them to wear some specific kind of printed shirt
