Merium Pervaiz – A life of a blogger
I have always been very positive about whatever i did in my life. When I was growing up, I hardly used to cook. However, when I got married, I used to spend large amounts of time cooking . Intially, when i started posting some of my house chores stories on the social media i used to get a lot degrading comments such as “look at her what kind of family she has married into”, “she has no life and just lives in the kitchen”, who does she think she is, no one will watch her videos”. These comments were very hurtful and at the beginning I used to get very upset upon reading them. I felt shocked that people would try and demotivate someone just because he/she didn’t come from a ‘’higher class’’ family. They used to make fun of me saying, ‘’your videos are a crap”, how sad is that our society always shows hatred.
Even though I came across a lot of negative comments but still i remained to focus on the good and ignore the negativity. I believe everyone should be positive and with a positive frame of mind you can achieve anything. When i got married, i would never have imagined having such a great fan base. The best thing that helped me was always being positive and having faith in Allah. Now, I’m lucky to have a brilliant fan following and family who always keeps me motivated.
It is ironic because the same people who criticised me initially about my content are now doing the exactly as i did. What I say is stop criticism instead help people who are inexperienced. It’s most important that you surround yourself with positivity always, and have it in your mind at all times. Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more.
