WHAT WILL PEOPLE SAY.......




The thing is, people will always always have something to say. They say what they need to and move on with their lives and we sit with their judgemental, selfish, baseless opinions, allowing it to lurk in our minds and cripple us.  

What will people say? 
The more relevant question is.... 
Why should you care?
These 'people' thrive on watching you squirm under their narrow minded scrutiny. The less informed are often the most opinionated.

Since forever, people have based their choices and often life determining decisions on WHAT WILL PEOPLE SAY... Hence we have become a society on a treadmill, we are working  so hard to please others when in reality it's never ever going to get us anywhere.... 

Basically...

You can't get married too young. They'll say you're desperate for a man... 

You can't get married too old... They'll say you're desperate for a man... 

You can't not marry... They'll say you can't get a man.... 

If you choose not to get divorced... They'll say you can't stand up for yourself... 

You get divorced... They'll say you're ungrateful... 

Don't marry rich, they'll say you're marrying for money... 

Don't marry poor... They'll say you can't do better... 

Don't dress up too much.. They'll say you're showing off... 

Don't dress like a simpleton.. They'll say you're a slob

Don't cry.. They'll say you're weak

Don't be strong... They'll say you're cold... 

Don't eat too much.. They'll say you're greedy... 

Don't eat so little... They'll think you're dieting.... 

Don't, don't, don't..... 

So go for misery, buy unaffordable, go into debt, be single but get married don't be happy but be happy, cry but please not too much.... 

People will have you in a straight jacket doing cartwheels before they'll ever be remotely close to being genuinely happy for you. 

These people that we're trying to please are driven by envy when it comes to your career, beauty, intelligence, marriage and lifestyle so why are you waiting for them to applaud your success in life? 

You'll have a greater chance of seeing a fire spitting dragon walk down your street than seeing these 'people' happy for you.... 
Speaking of dragons.... Let's talk about these snivelling aunties that will record everything they see, from your clothes to your actions and then it's action replay when they all get together to 'discuss'.. "You saw what she wore" and "You saw what she did" 

Are we destined to be nothing more than this? We're either worrying about others or worrying about what others say... Both habits will guarantee a wasted life filled with things that don't concern you. 

Aim for success by worrying what Allah SWT will think. Our decisions affect our lives and dua alone will redirect the incorrect choices.

Mistakes make you human and laughing at the mistakes of others will be YOUR mistake because the people you mock and ridicule may not always know or hear what you say but your Creator does and since He is your Greatest judge, you're playing with fire my dear.... 

Decide today to take charge of your own life and refuse to be bullied by society that will always talk irrespective of your decision. Break free from the opinions of others and liberate yourself as their constant approval will imprison you and trust me, it'll be a life sentence because people will always have something to say..... 

Your life your rules!!
