Hello world, my name is Fadwa. Sassy queen from Texas living in Nashville.

This is something I see girls struggle with constantly and that needs to change. Take it from someone who hasn’t had a guy around to tell me that I’m “beautiful” in over 2 years (my dad doesn’t count). And guess what? I KNOW I’M BEAUTIFUL. My beauty- our beauty and self worth shouldn’t come from a guy. Whether you believe in God or not your beauty should never come from someone else because you are worth more than someone else’s opinions.
My love language is quality time. I like to constantly be around the people I consider my friends and family because that is what brings me joy. That is what fills me up with life and keeps me going. I could be with you for a week straight and still feel like hanging out because that is how my heart works. I honestly never get sick of the people I love.
And that it scares me because I know others don’t think the same way.
You are so kind! She’s doing better just taking things slow, no work for her and family is helping around the house. thank you :)
Guys this hits home right now because my mother has been in and out of the hospital for the past few weeks. Thank God she is doing alright but seriously don’t take the ones you love for granted. Don’t let another day pass without telling people you love them.
I am not generally the type of girl who defines her worth in men. I do not need constant affirmation from the opposite sex to feel loved or wanted. I don’t crave attention from guys because I know that who I am does not revolve around having a relationship. That being said every now and then being single and completely invisible to guys does get old and I question God because I still haven’t mastered patience.
It’s not that I question if I’m beautiful enough or thin enough, I just question why He purposefully puts an anti-men shield over me. I am constantly around girls in relationships, girls who go on dates once a week, and girls who have several boys wanting to talk to them (it isn’t fun when you’re the girl who’s never even been on a real date). So anyways the past few days have just consisted of numerous comments and questions towards God about why I’m alone- but today I think He knew I really needed a good laugh involving my situation so this happened….
[I pull up to the taco bell drive through window]
Boy at the window: WELL HELLO CUTIE! LOOK AT YOU! (he wasn’t really yelling but it was a louder and excited tone
Me: hahahahahahahah hello.
Boy: (he hands me my food and I begin to roll my window up) Please come see me again at your earliest convenience, have a good night beautiful.
Now this guy wasn’t attractive but he also wasn’t being super creepy. It just made me laugh because I’ve felt unnoticed the last few days. I’m 100% positive God wanted a laugh out of it too. God is a funny man. It was just what I needed and it was great.
Right now this is everything. Absolutely everything.
People always say, “time heals all wounds”, but I’ve discovered that this is not true. God heals all wounds. Time has a way of making you regret things and miss certain parts of your life. God has a way of making you believe there is something better.
^ that was not written by me but I could not agree more.
I am so completely grateful for where I am in this exact moment. Things have gradually become so much better and I am truly thankful. Thanks God for helping me heal. You’re great.
