My father had taught me to be nice first, because you can always be mean later, but once you’ve been mean to someone, they won’t believe the nice anymore. So be nice, be nice, until it’s time to stop being nice, then destroy them.

If your looking to get married and expecting a fairytale love story where your swept of your feet every day and it’s all lovey dovey, then you need to wake up and realise exactly where you are; the dunyah.

Many go into marriage with unrealistic expectations which only leads to hurt when they don’t receive what they expected, or whenever small trials arise.

But the other person isn’t to blame, you only have yourself to blame by expecting some bollywood and Disney film lifestyle.

Some even expect a handsome prince for a husband, or a ‘supermodel’ looking wife whatever that means.

But you gotta realise that the women and men you see on tv and advertisements aren’t truly like that, it’s all illusion and fakery. And that whilst beauty and good looks will fade with time, a beautiful character and personality will remain.

Look towards inner beauty, not what’s merely on the outside.

humans are kinda cute we pass stories down generations to instill a sense of wonder in people we’ll never know and we have little bells on our houses to tell each other that we’ve arrived and we shiver when we get cold and we have an endless amount of curiosity and if the night sky is clear our first instinct is to look up at the stars and think about going on big adventures
