Confessions of a Jealous Hijabi

I have a confession to make. Typically I am so positive and encouraging, but I noticed a really ugly feeling that welled up in myself recently.

I noticed I was getting jealous of one of my fellow hijabi bloggers! I mean it happens. One of the things that bugged me is how it seems that fashionistas always make a big fuss over thinner bloggers than curvy ones. I mean I get it, clothes look better on skinnier girls, but it depressed me a little to see it matters among the hijabi set too!

I know it’s only human, but I felt terrible. I wanted to celebrate everyone’s successes but I also wanted to feel successful too.

Then I realized putting myself down wasn’t going to do anyone any favors. So I made dua for the person I felt jealous of. Made dua for her to be forgiven for her sins, her health, her family. And do you know what? It made me feel better. It really did.

And I am not going to be discouraged. I blog because it makes me happy. If it helps you lovely readers that makes me even happier.
