Thinking wisely.

Assalamualaikum people!

God has gifted human beings with an awesome ability of thinking. As we all know we have a brain and it helps us to take decisions. No,I'm not gonna talk about cerebrum,cerebellum etc. :P That sounds good in your biology class only.Or not.We will discuss the less-talked about part.

Many of us don't think much before acting and many just think but don't act! Both are wrong ! We need to think and act. Before doing something, we should ask ourselves that what are we going to do is right? And analyse a little. But everything we do is different. Somethings doesn't require a much thought! Like choosing between two tees! We shouldn't waste our time in thinking for irrelevant things!

Think about problems people face and how to solve them... This doesn't necessarily mean that you should just think about poor and needy, you should also help your family out sometimes. For an example, your little brother is having a problem in arranging clothes in his cupboard but what he doesn't think about is that he have lots of such clothes he no longer wears! Donate them and you will help some poor lad and your brother at the same time! However, this was just an example which came to my mind right now but they are many such things you can do by application of your thinking in right way!

Thinking before speaking is something we no longer do! Reminds me of something I read recently. There are five things you should be sure of before you speak that if it is  'T'rue,'H'elpful,'I'nspiring,'N'ecessary,'K'ind. If you do think before you speak, your life will be pretty easier.

So, yeah this is it. I know this is kinda different and veryyyy short, that is because I was told by a cousin to write on this, so it is not my own topic. I do look forward to your suggestions too on what topic I should write, comment them down below.
P.S. I may write on this topic later because this topic is huge.

Edit: I may have said things in this blog I wouldn't agree now or maybe the way I said it is too childish, so keep in mind that this is an old blog. I'm not deleting it because blogs are my first online appearance as a writer :p

Social Media Etiquette

What is Etiquette? Well, according to Wikipedia it is a code of behaviour that delineates expectations for social behaviour according to contemporary conventional norms within a society, social class, or group. All of us are taught how to behave, talk and eat in public. We have also pretty much excelled in it but when it comes to social media, we are not quite sure about etiquette. We haven't taught about it anywhere.

 So, I thought we should have a little discussion about it. I am not teaching anything, I am just sharing some things which I think can help us. I repeat, I am not 'teaching' anything and there could be things which even I should start exercising as none of us is perfect. 

Having said that, let us quickly discuss few important things.
1) Remember the fact that although it is virtual media, people are real. Hence, no playing with feelings bro! Think before you speak (technically,it is tweet or post or whatever :P). Never say something which you know won't go well with a person you're talking to. Value people's sentiments.

2) Although I know most of the people don't take anyone seriously online, there are few people who do. If there are such people around, don't take them for granted.

3) I see many people looking for potential spouses on social media :P I don't think it is a wise idea because I haven't heard of any online couple who are happily married. Seriously guys. No offence to anyone is intended. I am just being honest. Ask yourself honestly whether you will be able to marry that person. And if the answer is no, you are not just wasting your time but also destroying the life of another person involved who is possibly more serious than you are. Think about it. 

4) Don't attach yourself with anybody too much. Just don't. Consequences could be worse than you imagine, I am telling you. You know pretty well that you won't be here in coming years, what then? I am not saying not to make few good friends. I am all for it but make sure you don't get too attached. It can hurt you. 

5) People getting 'exposed' is a trend nowadays. For those who don't know, it is posting screenshots of DM conversations of people where one of the people behaves immorally. When I see guys panicking about it, I find it plain stupid. Why say things which you will regret when they are made public? And people actually trusting someone enough to think they won't expose them after their disgusting demands is beyond me. You think you will get away after showing how filthy you are? Where have you left your brains? I won't judge anyone and sincerely hope guys who do this will stop in'sha'Allah. Pretty much always both the people are at fault. Girls should not get that too friendly with guys to discuss things which could lead to such immoral and disgusting demands.

6) Every other day we hear a celebrity speaking something and getting into controversies. Most of the times stories are woven by media for the sake of TRPs. So, it is best to ignore and not talk about it because one of the major problem of our country (pretty much, whole world actually) today is that we get mad on irrelevant things. We talk, debate over things which won't benefit us in any way. We are eluding from actual problems and focusing on useless things. Grow up, guys!

7) We usually use it for time pass but it is better if we serve some purpose. Share some worthy information and reminders.
So yeah, there !let us keep these things in mind and use our time on social media effectively in'sha'Allah!

 I pretty much summed up everything and if something is missing, let me know down in comments! Do tell me how you liked it. Everything up there was my opinion, ignore if you disagree. 
Have an amazing day ahead. 
Assalamualaikum :)
