So, here’s the thing ever feel lost in a relationship and don’t know where it should go from there? Well, I’ve been through it all and I know exactly what you are going through! You fall in love with someone that you think is going to be there for the rest of your life when in fact you were just used. You never know when the right person will be coming your way and you don’t know if your ever going to find that right person till you try and figure it out yourself. Being an Arab girl myself I know that it is hard be born and raised 2 different cultures. I was born in Canada but my parents are from the middle east, so for a fact you can tell that I have been going through so much trying to figure out which life is mine.
A lot of things are going around saying that Arabs are suppose to be getting married arranged. Well, that is in the past now it is a choice. The only thing is you don’t know when and where it is going to happen. Your man/women could be across the world waiting for you but you don’t know if you should go down there to bring them here to Canada because what if they are just using you to come here.
I know that its a hard thing to deal with because I’ve been through it once and now apparently I’m going to have to be going through it again because of the fact that my parents still want me to meet someone from back home because they think the guys here aren’t as well as back home.
If someone sees me walking with a guy and they find out we are just friends the things that could happen to an Muslim girl isn’t a very happy thought. With the Muslim girls sometimes you have to hide the people you hang out with cause if you show them the people you hang out with and they don’t approve than again it wont be a happy thought.
All I mostly have to say about this is for people not to assume anything anymore from the Muslims because everything has changed people here are maybe way better than the people back home. And the stereotypes have to STOP because if you assume something that is not right than you don’t know your real self and you don’t know the true meaning of the real world.
One saying I tell my mom about the Arabs back home is “If someone goes to the bathroom and one person finds out the whole village will talk about it and make rumors about what happened!” when in fact you just went to go and wash your hands.
