Socializing is as exhausting as giving blood. People assume we loners are misanthropes just sitting thinking, ‘Oh, people are such a bunch of assholes,’ but it’s really not like that. We just have a smaller tolerance for what it takes to be with others. It means having to perform. I get so tired of communicating. ”

We can’t jump off bridges anymore because our iPhones will get ruined. We can’t take skinny dips in the ocean, because there’s no service on the beach and adventures aren’t real unless they’re on Instagram. Technology has doomed the spontaneity of adventure and we’re helping destroy it every time we Google, check-in, and hashtag. ”

Whenever you are faced with the burden of a difficulty, lighten it by remembering three things:
1. That it is only temporary. Nothing in this life is forever. Neither your happiness nor your pain. It will soon come to pass.
2. That it has been predestined. Nothing you think you could or could not have done would have avoided it. It was meant to get to u. It is all part of a bigger and better plan for you.
3. Thirdly, seek comfort in the fact that if you bear this with acceptance and patience then you will be rewarded greatly for the suffering you are enduring. Allahu Akbar!”
