3 ways to SWOT-V analyze your life

When it comes to personal development, the main goal is not always to be better than the person next door — though that’s not always so bad. The main goal is to become better than we were yesterday, and in order to do that, we need to know where we were yesterday and where we stand today. […]

Can you feel your neurons dying? Here’s your fix…

The silent struggle of being depressed and trying to follow your faith.

I didn’t sleep well last night I didn’t sleep much at all in fact I cried silently as the tears dripped into my ear,it is loneliest at nighttime when all others are asleep and your brain is to awake to sleep but to tired to watch movies or read a book ,that is when the thoughts of doubt and what ifs and if only’ s creep in and steal your peace and quiet ,
Peace and quiet not sure how to get that if only’s and doubts to stop creeping in while I’m trying to sleep.

I feel like I have struggled all my life with one thing or another.
Right now it seems I am struggling with my faith and trying to fulfill my obligations of prayer.

All I do now is struggle to do my prayers and make dua to Allah to increase my eman and give me saber to deal with the
