Love Yourself Before You Love Others

Dear me,

This is a reminder to reflect and think about your wellbeing.

First of all never say ‘what if’ – “a strong believer is better and dearer to Allah than a weak one, and both are good. Keenly pursue what benefits you, seek help only from Allah, and do not give up. If something befalls you, do not say, ‘if only I had done otherwise.’ rather say, ‘Allah so determined and did as he willed,’ for ‘if only’ opens the door to satan’s work.” (Al-Bukhari)

Stop being hard on yourself, nobody is perfect and you can’t do everything perfectly particularly when you are juggling many things at the same time.

Take some time out, it’s really good to spend some time alone with yourself. To reflect on things: bake, draw, read etc.

Create a plan for things that worries you, it will ease your worry knowing you already have a plan.

Spend quality time with family.. do some activities together.

More than anything be yourself and love yourself and thank Allah SWT for everyday. Alhamdulillah for everything.
