“All little girls should be told they are pretty, even if they aren't.”

This is just a random post.

It just hits me when I had a conversation about girls nowadays who are so easily been lied in social media especially in WeChat. I know I can’t simply blaming the,. The reason why they are being so easy with guys is because lack of love. And this is what I observe from those girls.

Parents and family play the most important role here. As a girl, she needs attention. She needs someone who can pampers her and treats her like a princess. So here goes the parents’ responsibility. The father should repeatedly say that she is beautiful. She has the fair and flawless skin. She indeed pretty in her own way and whatever she wears, makes her looks like an angel.

And she might smiling all day listens to this saying 😊. Plus, brothers should be educate to do the same. It’s not haram pun to take care of your sisters. Hold her hands when you want to cross the road together or let her sleep on your shoulders when you are sharing seat in the car. Protect her. Let her feels secured. Let her know you love her. And insyaAllah she won’t get influenced with those ‘parasite’ guys out there.

When she get used to those stuffs, she wouldn’t care anymore if there is a guy with a sweet talks telling her these. Because she already heard that from her father, her brothers, or even her uncles. And she wouldn’t care too if her friends looking so sweet holding hands with their boyfriend because the guys in her family already did that to her since she was a kid.

Well, who cares if a guy tell her she is beautiful? She heard it repeatedly tho. She already knew it. So those kind of puji-pujian thingy is a common things to her. It’s not a big deal pun. Sounds arrogant, doesn’t it? But it’s better than fall into the trap of a bad relationship.

I love what Khaled Hosseini said in his book.
“I know you’re still young but I want you to understand and learn this now. Marriage can wait, education cannot. You’re a very very bright girl. Truly you are. You can be anything you want Laila. I know this about you. And also I know that when this war is over Afghanistan is going to need you as much as its men maybe even more. Because a society has no chance of success if its women are uneducated Laila. No chance.” 
-Khaled Hosseini, A Thousand Splendid Suns

Marriage can wait, education cannot.

Because a society has no chance if its women are uneducated.

Go and chase your dream, dear girls. Because it’s education that will make you different. Make your parents proud and lucky for having a daughter like you. Make them feel worth of the struggle to get birth of you. Let’s get your life busy with knowledge because knowledge is powerful 😏.
