unrealistic-awkward-piece-of-art asked: Assalamu'alaikum, sisters & brothers. I'm a soon-to-be freshman in High School in Indonesia. I've been having anxiety attack, bad thoughts, worries, insecurities, and questions that I'm not capable of answering lately. I'm wondering what should I do as a muslim girl to deal with it? I don't wanna start off High School with those sorts of things. So, I really need your help and I'm actually a bit scared. Thank you, Assalamu'alaikum :)
the best advice I can ever give to anyone, especially as a Muslim woman, is seek counseling or medical facilities that will help you understand any type of issues you may be psychologically dealing with. I cant stress how important that is, I really cant.
There were moments in my life where i thought that I had no one to turn to because I just felt like there was no one who would be able to understand my troubles. When that happened, I lost sight of Allah. I lost sight of what was most important. And I lost understanding of seeking help. But when I knew that I needed to talk to someone, I sought help, and Alhamdulilah I am better.
Theres nothing in this dunya that will not try to challenge you — this whole life is struggle after struggle. But whats important is that we figure out the tools we need to overcome them, even when we might be doing it alone.
Just remember that Allah is with all of us, especially the most silent of us. Remember that there are centers that are willing to clinically help you; dont be shy in asking for help!
InshaAllah this helps. — Dee
