A lot of times I get reassurance that I’m doing right thing by telling my stories. They say I’m brave for putting myself out there. Especially as a Muslim woman. But I also get those other people who insert themselves between myself and my religion, questioning how I can call myself Muslim and wear tight clothes or smear lipstick on my lips or go on dates. How I can write about semi-vulgar topics or FB live myself getting a Brazilian wax. They insert themselves into my diet, not knowing that I frequent the gym. They inquire about my family which I try to conceal since it’s broken due to mental illness. Sometimes, I wonder if I really am doing the right thing. On that ‘correct’ path. Should I have ever started being so candid with my blogging. That maybe I just should’ve stuck to chatting about trends and style.
