can we please understand that “depressed” is an actual emotion as well as a mental disorder

just because you say you feel depressed one day doesn’t mean you’re claiming to have depression and it’s an actual emotion and if you say “i’m feeling depressed today” is absolutely okay because it is in fact a mood and a clinical disorder

This post? This is a very important post.

Just because you do it
doesn’t mean you always will.

you’re never exactly the same,

id like think im an alternative badass girl who doesn’t give a shit and doesnt live by societys rules, but in reality i do all my homework and never back talk teachers and i say “please” and “thank you” and “sorry” way too much.

this post is making me rethink my life why

Hermione Granger did all of those things and was still a total badass

I almost lost it at the Disney Store today.


Why? I watched a father very firmly tell his little boy “No, you can’t have that Rapunzel dress.” The boy was near tears until his dad continued, “That one’s way too small. Let’s find your size.”

Eventually, the little boy decided against the dress and, with his dad’s blessing, picked out a tiara instead, because “it’s better for everyday.”

Parenting: this guy’s doing it right. 

Excuses to stay at home and read a book:


1. ”I’m really sleepy.”


2. “I just don’t have time for a social life”


3. ”I’m not feeling so great”


4.”I have a serious medical condition that prevents me from leaving the house.”


5. “I have amnesia”


6. “I don’t have long to live.”


7. “I suffered a fatal accident.”


8. When all else fails …


OR 9. ” I prefer to stay home and read a book”

Before you “share” your good news, consider this:
You know that feeling when something amazing happens to you and you can’t wait to share it with the world? Learn to wait. Here’s why:
1. When any good news came to the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wa salam) or if a calamity had been averted, he would immediately fall in prostration (sajdatul shukr) and thank Allah for it. This is a beautiful sunnah that should be practiced all the time and not just for major occasions like graduations, new homes, etc.
2. Take a few moments to really deeply say al hamdulila from the depths of your heart. That will be a form of maintaining that blessing as Allah will see your sincere gratitude.
3. Some of the scholars say that one of the reasons Allah did not allow Zakariyya (alayhis salam) to speak for 3 days except for words of praise was to bestow a greater appreciation of the blessing upon him. Al Baghawi (ra) said that is because sometimes when you speak about your blessings to others immediately, you lose yourself in your excitement.
So from now on when something good happens to you, hold off on the phone call, text, email, or status. Say takbeer, go into prostration, say subhana rabbi al a’ala the way you do in your prostration in prayer, AND add a personal note of dua and thanks to Allah from the depths of your heart before you rise.
