“After this I go to work at a pizza shop. My wife and I were college professors in Bangladesh. I taught accounting. But one dollar in America becomes eighty dollars when we send it back home.”

People forget, when immigrants come to this country they start from scratch. They could have been lawyers in their home country, but in the US..it means nothing. You think a HS diploma from Bangladesh means anything in this country? My mom was a top student in the country, went to all the best school and got the best of everything…but when she got here it meant squat and she was cleaning other people’s homes and scrubbing their toilets. This is why I get pissed of when people talk smack about immigrants. They at least are doing something…..heading for a goal..making sacrifices…what are you doing with your life? 

^ My parents were college-educated teachers in their home country and came to the U.S. with nothing but empty pockets, a dash of hope, and a belief in God. They also scrubbed toilets in people’s homes to make enough to provide for their children, and that’s probably not something a lot of educated professionals would be able to do. I know I wouldn’t be able to do it. Pride would get in the way.

THIS IS TOO IMPORTANT.

Shoutout to my parents

and you know, shout out to our im/migrant parents who were not college educated before they came to the U.S and don’t share a narrative of going from “riches to rags.” shout out to my im/migrant parents who were laborers at home and are still laborers here.
i think it’s important to honor the complexities of our parents histories and uplift their triumphs but let’s remember to do so in a way that honors all of the ways im/migrants exist and all of the places we and our parents come from. we don’t have to prove that capitalism, white supremacy, classism, etc is awful because our parents were once revered college professors or doctors. we don’t have to believe in that assimilation.

Life is so damn short, for fucks sake, just do what makes you happy.

Compliment people. Magnify their strengths, not their weaknesses.

Not everyone is going to want, accept, or know how to receive your energy. Make peace with it and move on.

Kindness. It doesn’t cost a damn thing. Sprinkle that shit everywhere.

Slow down, calm down, don’t worry, don’t hurry. Trust the process.

Spend more time making yourself a better person and less time worrying about what everyone else is doing.

Find a way, not an excuse.

Religious freedom doesn’t mean you can force others to live by your own beliefs, and you do not have to endure this from others either.

We are not our failures.

You can’t live a positive life with a negative mind.

The more you close yourself the unhappier you’ll be. You’re not alone, open up to people.

People come and people go. That’s the way the world goes. Live and learn, don’t live and regret. The best is yet to come. Look forward.

When you lose yourself in what you love, you find yourself in what you are.

Forget everything you’ve been told and open your mind.

Forgiveness is the greatest indicator of strength. Admit when you’re wrong, but if someone makes you feel like shit for the mistake, move on. Similarly, when someone makes a mistake, be good enough to understand why they did. You don’t attack people because of a mistake. People learn.
