Always be kinder than you feel.
Take care of your souls.
Stop worrying about how to start or where to start. Instead, just start. There is no such thing as perfect timing, because everything in life, be it seemingly good or bad, only happens when and how it’s meant to and is best for you. What you can do is simply start, and never give up or look back. Life has its way of making you by breaking you, and it is THAT, by the Mercy of God, that creates the unique version of perfection that is you.
Sometimes you’ll come across someone who isn’t the smartest, wealthiest, or most popular but they have the best Akhlaq (manners). Keep their company.
