Friends

Dear Sisters, When you wear your hijab and are rebuked or disrespected please stand tall and respond with calmness. The reason this is done is to make you feel less than human.If you must cry wait until you get home. We must stand up to these bigots and racists. We do not have to take their abuse. Even if you feel alone never show it and do not show fear. This is what they thrive on. We have no control over ignorance but we do not have to stand there and take their abuse in silence. Try to record the incident if possible. Stand tall and stay proud.

To the friend who has never physically left my side or betrayed me, but isn't the person I thought they were. Through the years I've felt that we've become closer and more open, but it has been the opposite. You've become more closed off and secretive than ever before. I think I know less about the person you truly are now than I did before we were friends. You don't tell me important parts of your life and you leave your struggles out of conversations. I've found that we always seem to be discussing me and my tragedies and triumphs, but never yours. It has gotten to the point that I know more about my acquaintances than I do about you. I don't think you've done this on purpose. I think it has developed and you've realized how much easier it is over time. You don't have to deal...

Hey there, remember me? Yeah, we used to be besties. I'm sorry you couldn't understand that people grow up, and when they get busy - well, you have to make plans a little in advance, and maybe even *gasp* hang out less! Why yes, I DID (and still do!) spend a lot of time with my significant other, and here's why: As an adult, the goal of finding a stable relationship and forming a friendship with someone for the rest of my life is important to me. Sure he's just a boyfriend right now, but are you still going to complain when I want to spend time with a husband? or a fiancé? The "hoes before bros" concept is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard. Does it remain "friends before husband" after the wedding ceremony? There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to spend...

I went to the hospital today. I walked in not knowing what to expect. I almost didn't go. I didn't want to make it about me. Because it's not about me, it is about all of those lost souls who could not find the will to keep going. I'm not angry at you, I'm the opposite of angry. I can't find the word to describe how I feel. Because there isn't one word that can describe the puzzle going on inside of me. I know what that feeling is, to feel like there is nothing left. An emptiness that splits you open causing a pressure so strong that feeling and emotion are no longer there. This sense of urgency to make it all stop. Maybe if you knew that sometimes it's okay to feel like this, you would still be with us. When I held your hand it was still warm and I became hopeful that this wasn't...

We all walked into the dorm for the very first time freshman year and questions were racing through our minds. These questions were as simple as "How do I decorate my room" all of the way to "I wonder who I will become friends with in this place". We all may not having started in the same dorm, or the same year, but little did I know somehow this journey would lead me to you. We've all heard over and over again that college is the place, the place where we will make the friendships that last us a lifetime. Did any of us think twice about this statement freshman year? How and where would we meet these forever friends? We still held onto our high school friendships that were made, and most would surely fade. There are a lucky few that stay close after high school, but high school is...
