“I don't want to let anyone down, and feel like I've failed them if I can't be supportive. Sometimes I am struggling myself and I realized I have no one who actually listens to me.”
Sincerely, Sumayah // [Episode 40] Support During A Crisis — Telling More Gracious Stories
What happens when you are going through a challenging time and your closest people let you down? What does it mean when they don't show up for you? Can we acknowledge our personal limitations around being there for our people, and extend that compassion to them when it's our turn?
Sincerely, Sumayah // [Episode 39] Are They Ready to Hear It?
All of our timelines for understanding and growth differ and we can't rush or control our own timing or those of others. Instead of questioning whether we could have done more to get a message across, a different question would be whether our audience is ready to hear it.
Sincerely, Sumayah // [Episode 38] Social Media: A Perfectly Polished Performance
Where's the line between playing the part and being an entire human being? Thoughts on navigating vulnerability, openness, reality and truth in the context of social media and marketing.
Sincerely, Sumayah // [Episode 37] A Million Mistakes
Allah (awj) is inviting you to come back to Him. He has not given up on you. He still wants you. He sees the good in you, even when you no longer see it in yourself. Even after a million mistakes. All you need to do is to turn to Him
Sincerely, Sumayah // [Episode 36] One Last Thing
You aren't unworthy, corrupt or so lost that you should just give up on yourself. You're not too far gone. If you have nothing else, hold on to the one last thing. It may be the thing that saves you.
