"Forgive me for doing this in notes. I’m not strong enough to do it in persons. I realize now that I’m attracted to you for the same reason I can’t be with you: you can’t change. And I have no problem with that, but it clearly means I have a problem with myself. I’m sure there’s no perfect version of me. I’m sure I’ll just unify species after species and never really be complete. But I know how it goes with us. I lose who I am and become part of you. Because in a strange way, you’re better at what I do without even trying.
- yours, and nobody else’s, Unity."
"One day you’ll have whatever it is you’re now so confusedly seeking. That kind of calm that comes from knowing oneself and others. But you can’t rush the arrival of that state of mind. There are things you only learn when no one teaches them. And that’s how it is with life. There’s even more beauty in discovering it for yourself, in spite of the suffering. Sensitive people are both unhappier and happier than others. But give it some time."
حَسْبُنَا اللهُ وَ نِعْمَ الْوَكِيْل
Allah's help is sufficient for us. He is the best protector.
Recite this in your hard times with pure trust in Allah and see how miraculously it calms your heart down.

Do you know what happened to you? Do you?
Because I don't. I don't know what happened to me.

“It’s easy to feel uncared for when people aren’t able to communicate and connect with you in the way you need. And it’s so hard not to internalize that silence as a reflection on your worth. But the truth is that the way other people operate is not about you. •
Most people are so caught up in their own responsibilities, struggles, and anxiety that the thought of asking someone else how they’re doing doesn’t even cross their mind. They aren’t inherently bad or uncaring – they’re just busy and self-focused. And that’s okay. •
It’s not evidence of some fundamental failing on your part. It doesn’t make you unloveable or invisible. It just means that those people aren’t very good at looking beyond their own world. •
But the fact that you are – that despite the darkness you feel, you have the ability to share your love and light with others – is a strength. Your work isn’t to change who you are; it’s to find people who are able to give you the connection you need. And with or without anyone’s acknowledgment or affection, you are enough.”
