I seriously think I need to focus on myself more. I have always on putting others before me always, and I don’t think I can necessarily change that, it’s how I work. However, I think I need to realize more and more I come second to most of my friends, if even that. I worry about them, and try to always make them feel good and make sure they realize they are valued and loved, but no one does the same for me. I need to realize that even though I do that for others, it doesn’t mean they’ll do it for me, and they don’t and won’t. I need to start doing that for myself, and make sure I stop helping others at the cost of helping myself.

some people’s voices are just very appealing. you can’t explain it. there is no way to describe it. it’s just like. how. why. why does your voice do things to me. why does it make me feel things. why. how. why

If these font sizes don’t speak to the relative value of Palestinian life, I don’t know what does.

In addition to the font size, its also the language surrounding the deaths.
Not only do we know of the two Israelis, but also their occupation (they were soldiers sent to kill) and where they were killed.
Over 300 Palestinians are just referred to as deaths. Anything that was once alive could die. Animals, foliage, etc. They couldn’t even say Palestinians. Even acknowledging the identity of the colonized and allotting them basic humanity is too provocative. No location, no root of cause (because then it’d have to be understood that Israeli aggression is indeed at fault). Just 330 deaths. It all exists in a detached vacuum.
But it does refer back to Hamas. No matter what happens to Palestinians, its implicitly suggested that Hamas is to blame. Everything Israel does is reactionary under the normalization of Zionist brutality. To someone who doesn’t understand the nature of Israeli settler colonialist violence, this could very well be understood as Hamas killing Palestinians. The only mention of Israel is through a victim narrative.

Lazy

Lately I have been so lethargic and lazy. I have done nothing really productive this summer, and I feel like my life has lost meaning. Then I went to a rally for Palestine this past weekend and I realized that I have an obligation to be the best me I can be for my people.
I was really emotional, and the past couple days have been rough, but I have been updating myself on the latest news and it hit me again; I need to be better.
I think something that escaped my mind is my body doesn’t belong to me; it belongs to Allah. Allah created me for a reason, and it’s not to be a lazy do nothing for my whole damn life.
Allah has created me for a reason.
He has kept me alive for a reason.
He has fed me for a reason.
He has saved me for a reason.
He chose me for a reason.
I am not better than anyone else, but I realized I am here for a reason.
I am here to make this world a better place than when I was born.
I exist to serve Allah, and an insanely important part of that is to use the blessings He has given me for good.
I think I sometimes forget the heroes which came before me. The prophet (pbuh) and his companions were heroes. I have to join their ranks. To continue the fight which they began. I have a responsibility to all the Muslims in the world. I have a responsibility to all those who are suffering or oppressed, Muslim or not.
When you are feeling lazy and unproductive; get up. Don’t do it for yourself.
Do it for Palestine.
Do it for Somalia.
Do it for Bosnia.
Do it for Afghanistan.
Do it for the starving children.
Do it for the billions who never got and will never get the opportunities you did.
You are not fighting only for your existence, but also for their right to exist.

If you support Israel please unfollow me

redplebeian:

Correction: If you support Israel, first, go fuck yourself, second, go out there and memorize all the names of innocent Palestinian men, women and children Israel has murdered in cold blood just in the last 72 hours. See their names. Look at pictures of their mutilated corpses. Try to feel a human emotion for once in your fucking life. 

Then unfollow me

STOP TREATING PALESTINIAN PROTESTS LIKE A FUN NIGHT OUT. YOU ARENT THERE TO POSE FOR GROUP PICTURES. YOU ARENT THERE TO LOOK CUTE AND COME UP WITH MAKEUP LOOKS. YOU ARENT THERE TO GIGGLE ABOUT CUTE BOYS OR LIVE TWEET EVERY STEP YOU TAKE AND EVERY CELEBRITY YOU MEET. 

YOU ARE THERE TO STAND UP FOR THOSE WHO ARE BEING BRUTALLY MURDERED. HAVE SOME FUCKING RESPECT.
