I’m always going to be your daughter. I’m always going to be your little girl, the one you cradled in your arms as you ran from door to door crying for help because I was having a seizure. I’m always going to be your daughter who so frequently needs to go off by herself, your daughter who is at times so adamantly stubborn, your daughter who can’t dance for nuts, your daughter who really doesn’t like talking to strangers that much, your daughter who can never keep her room tidy for more than two days. I know you love me, and I love you, and those things will never change inshaAllah.
but mum, I have to find my own way. I can’t do it your way. it’s just different, what I’ve been led to and what you’ve been led to. but it’s all ending up at the same destination. I only ask that you trust me. I love you and I need your support.
