Love Yourself!

Why Youth Should Practice Self-Love

by Fatima Muwwakkil

When I speak of self-love, I don't mean egoism, conceited, or boastful arrogance. These are all extreme attributes. I also recognize that any positive attribute can become unhealthy when it shifts to the extreme. Rather, I am referring to the feeling of self-worth and self-acceptance, which are both recognized as components of a person's ability to effectively function and co-exist in society.

Mental Health Matters

“He is just in his twenties and he has already lost his mind.”

I remember moving as a child and meeting my new neighbours. One person who made quite an impression was the young man who lived in the big house behind me. He was always pleasant and kind and a broad smile would emanate whenever he saw someone. He sang beautifully; his clear tenor tone would awaken sleeping emotions in the otherwise still and quiet village.
