German Muslims


So if you are Facebook friends with me, you’ll be quite annoyed by now about me talking about visiting my best friend in Germany, cause that is indeed a thing that happened.
However, today I’ll talk about the fact that there’s actually quite a lot of Muslims around here, and it’s pretty dang cool.
I went to a place called Leinfelden (that is not anywhere near Berlin, fyi lol) and my first day I found to my semi-surprise that it appeared to be 60% white German people and 40% Turkish Muslims. Okay, so I suck at math and don’t know how to include the minorities that certainly do exist around here, but like, I noticed a majority random white people who were born here and Turkish Muslims who mostly immigrated there with a light speckling of Desi people and a few other races that are in the minority around here.
One of the first sights I saw when stepping into the town was a Muslim woman praying outside openly, and nobody even giving it a second glance!
There are less in Stuttgart and other neighboring areas, but still plenty. Way more than anywhere else I’ve been so far.


Some interesting Muslim-y things to note:

Literally nobody gives you weird looks for wearing hijab here. I actually didn’t register how often I got weird looks for wearing hijab where I live, because I really didn’t feel like I got any aside from the occasional Islamophobic old person in a Cracker Barrel, but apparently you don’t realize what you don’t got til you don’t have it LOL. Everybody looks at you exactly like everyone else here. I even got catcalled once. In German. Not a positive thing but like, haven’t gotten THAT in a while LMAO. But like, if I’m not wearing hijab, I get looked at as A Girl™, and if I’m wearing hijab, I get looked at as A Muslim™ (better in my opinion, it feels freeing and lovely as I’ve mentioned a billion times) but in Germany it’s the closest I’ve gotten since childhood to just being looked at as A Human and it’s a truly unique experience. Well done, Germans. 

-Germans are quiet but friendly. Overall lovely group of people. However, no passing Muslims say salaams AT ALL. Just as no passing non-Muslims say hi. Plus side, a grand total of ZERO SMALL TALK, HECK YEEEESS. Negative side, it’s a bit weird not at least doing that Friendly Knowing Exchanging Of Glances™ between Muslims that I’m used to where I live. But yes, very friendly people. My best friend’s housemate casually brought me an alcohol free beer while she was going to have a regular beer like it was no big deal, because, of course that’s what you do here

-There’s a lot of pork here though. But there’s also a lot of other things. Like freaking fantastic bread, and better candy than everywhere else

Went on an adventure to find a masjid. The masjid happened to be in a beautiful part of town, but so ridiculously tiny that it was underneath of a sports store with no signs noting its existence. I wouldn’t have found it if not for this really awesome nice young Muslim guy who noticed me looking lost and offered to help me out with no strings attached. He explained that THIS particular masjid was very tiny, so on Jummah days they let guys use both the brothers’ and sisters’ prayer areas (if you’re non-Muslim, this is because men are obligated to go to jummah but women aren’t actually obligated, primarily because when they’re on their cycle they don’t have to pray, so I understand their logic) and embarrassedly noted that they are planning to expand but haven’t yet. There was another bigger, Turkish masjid nearby, he said (this was a small primarily Desi masjid), but Jummah had already ended there. So I went and got coffee, and then came back to pray on my own. Outside, the guys were the most outwardly-happy Germans I’ve ever seen and ACTUALLY SAID SAALAMS TO EACH OTHER loooooll. Then the nice guy kicked out anyone in the usually-sisters’ area and gave me a mini-tour and kept it unlocked til I finished praying, WHICH WAS SUPER NICE, seriously this dude deserves all the rewards. The sisters’ area was exactly the same size as the upstairs’ brothers area, but both were minuscule and pretty adorable. So, I prayed there, thanked the ridiculously nice guy, and went on my way. Fun adventure. Faith in humanity = restored.

-Not actually related, but I wear boots all the time and SO DO ALL THE GIRLS HERE MWAHAHAHAHA.

Overall, I enjoy the Germans in in general and I enjoy the German Muslims. A+ to these parts of Germany.

I’m not one to praise humans very often. In fact, I spend a lot of time noting how much humans suck. Which is fair– and the sucky humans simply make the good humans that much better in comparison, allowing us to appreciate them. But today, I woke up in the middle of the night and had a thought– there is no other earthly species with so much potential for good and so much potential for evil as humans. All other creatures are simply animals doing what they will; what’s in their nature. We humans have the full ability to be unfathomably evil, cause chaos and destruction, and ruin the lives of ourselves and others. We humans have the ability to be the most deadly force on this earth even without claws or sharp teeth. But we are also the only species with such grand capabilities for calculated kindness and greatness. For positive change and global empathy. For a small deed that makes someone’s day, for survival even in the harshest of climates purely for the sake of others. And we are also quite capable of being anywhere on this scale somewhere around the middle, in that gray area. The choice is ours. Will you be a feared figure? A kind neighbor? A murderer? A savior? A person who forgives themselves and others? The choice is yours, as a human, day by day, as an incredibly diverse and powerful resilient little entity with free will in a world of hundreds and hundreds of others with that exact same ability of choice every day. You are the neutral protagonist of your own story. You are inherently a powerful being. So while you may not catch me saying it again, we humans are pretty dang cool.

Two Years Muslim: Convertiversary Ep. 2


Previously on Convertiversary

Last time, I was like, “I cannot believe it has been a year.”
This time, it’s like, “Dang, I’ve only officially been Muslim for TWO years?!” because I feel as if I’ve been officially Muslim for such a long time now. I also feel significantly older than I did two years ago, which may partially be due to the fact that a large amount of unfortunate experiences occurred in the last two years, but is also certainly partially due to the fact that in the past few years, I have learned and clarified a lot of larger life concepts, which is something to soak in.

My thoughts from last year were honestly pretty adorable, and re-reading them was pleasantly nostalgic.
For this year, however, I have a bit less to say. 
Because there comes a point where being Muslim is more deeply, just being you, which I noted near the end of my post from last year, and now I am in the depths of that self-sea and swimming comfortably. Because I have always felt that I was always Muslim in my heart, but LIVING as a Muslim seemed more complicated than it actually is.
And in fact, it’s really just being myself. Not that I would ever be other than myself, but the path to being myself was much more straightforward than it appeared in times of questions about what I was and wasn’t “supposed to do.” Now everything is both lighter and deeper simultaneously, which sounds quite pretentious but accurately describes how Two Years Muslim feels (or maybe just my life after two years?)

At this point, I have absolutely no discomfort when it comes to unapologetically being A Convert in my local community (by which I mean both college life and Muslim college life). Perhaps I should change the name of this blog to, “Heck yeah, I’m a Convert!!” instead. In fact, all Muslims are “converts” at one point or another, whether born into a Muslim family or not.

At this point, I feel solid in my faith and while I of course have much to learn (as we all do) I know more than I did previously, and I am eager to continue my journey on the path of knowledge and inshallah help as many others on THEIR paths of knowledge along the way. Even if sometimes I have low points. I went a long time without low points, but no matter how strong your iman is you’re gonna catch a few low points, and you’ll get out of them eventually. 

At this point, I have learned a lot about Qadr and free will, of trust and of life, and of myself (which is VERY cool, because I can humbly say that I’m a highly self-aware person, but I can still learn things which is great). I have learned about the gray, which is very important between the black and white, and of what PEOPLE say versus how it ACTUALLY is. This particular year was actually quite exciting, because I feel I indeed learned a lot, or solidified then-current thoughts into something meaningful and clear, and I look forward to what life may bring me next year in regards to personal discoveries about life and the universe.

At this point, this is more superficial BUUUUUUUUT I’m super excited about the fact that I finished the entire 104 episode Seerah Series by Yasir Qadhi this past year, and am now almost caught up to the lastest episodes of his 50+ ongoing Lives of the Sahaba series!! I know so much more even based on that ALONE! I also have gone to some excellent seminars with speakers such as YQ and Abdul Nasir Jangda, and I suggest to new Muslims or those just now getting into the deen to try and learn as much as possible.

Soak it all up. Highly-rated seminar? Attend it. “Ohhh but I have homework” nah man, you’re gonna stay up all night either way, attend the daggum seminar and then go home and study instead of watching Netflix. If you care, you’ll make time, same as with anything else you’re passionate in life. Awesome podcast? Listen while you work, or exercise, or walk. “The seeking of knowledge is obligatory for every Muslim.” 
Also for new Muslims, I suggest finding a group of Muslims you can talk about Islam with. It may seem awkward at first but you’ll find some– young Muslims are mostly super accepting, and it’s extremely helpful even to debate and converse in a group chat with them. I love how logical Islam is, with the perfect balance of the spiritual. You will, too. 
Ask the tough questions. Learn the answers to the tough questions. You got this.


At this point, not everything is perfect in regards to being a Muslim, but I feel like things are improving. There are some down sides to life as a still-new convert, there are some people who won’t want to accept you or listen to you, but that’s life, and will always happen in life, in general. But the actually experience of practicing true Islam is wonderful.

I would also like to note that, this blog has been around for a while now, and some of my views are MUCH better expressed now than they used to be on this blog. There were some concepts that I could not fully explain when I wrote them, or analogies that didn’t quite fit, but the purpose of this blog is to be a stream-of-consciousness-style reflection, and as my ability to conceptualize things has improved, my streams-of-consciousness have been able to make more sense on the first go, and I am sure that they will continue to do so because we can always continue to improve. Just note that it’s “Confessions” not, “Professionally Researched Research Papers The Blog.” 

To conclude this post, nothing really feels special about this day. It simply seems correct. Time passes, as time does, and life goes on, as life does, and we will get out of life what we will, alhamdulilah. I look forward to the next year as a Muslim, and while I love aging, I hope that maybe I don’t find the chance to grow up QUITE so much this year, aside from gaining life experience.

And, I again give my obligatory heartfelt thank you to everyone who as been there for me as a convert. Thank you again to everyone who helped me learn about Islam, everyone both Muslim and non-Muslim who supports me being a convert, and every awesome newer Muslim comrade I have meant since integrating myself into my local community. Thank you to even annoying people with annoying questions that caused me to gain interest in fiqh and history!! I appreciate all of you, even if it was just one helpful sentence, one thought-provoking statement, one meaningful moment. Thank you and JazakAllah Khair.

“You Know They’re The One When…”


Ayyy yo it’s a problem with social media again, so here I come to try and burst a bubble. If you’ve not read my post on Instagram Islam I suggest you check it out. But in that post, I didn’t touch upon one very particular thing about Instagram Islam and how it views relationships, one very subtle, particular thing that you may not catch on to. Because it doesn’t seem that harmful at first.

The thing is the “you know they’re the one” posts. Don’t lie, you know what these are. “You know they’re the one when they bring you closer to Allah” “You know they’re the one when you feel at home around them”– those posts.

I’m going to cut to the chase and tell you quite simply, that that is crap. 

You know they’re the one when they bring you closer to Allah.
You know they’re the one when you feel at home around them.
You know they’re the one when they make you a better person.
You know they’re the one when you love them for the sake of Allah, because they are them. 
You know they’re the one when you accept each other’s flaws.
You know they’re the one when they boost your Iman. 
You know they’re the one when they’re on the deen. 
You know they’re the one when you feel safe around them.
You know they’re the one when they bring you peace of mind.
You know they’re the one when you know you love them.

No, you don’t. You don’t know at all. Not even if you love them. Not even if they’re wonderful. Not even if they think you’re wonderful.

The only way to know they’re “the one” that you’ll spend the rest of your life with, is when you’ve spent the rest of your life with them, and they know that you are the one, too.

The end.

Shout-Out to Guys for a Sec


Thus ends 2017, which means that social media is full of posts empowering women to have confidence, self-love, and success in 2018.
But pausing for a second, that’s all 100% great, but let’s take a moment to give a shout-out to guys, too.
Guys who also deserve to have confidence, self-love, success, and personal goals in 2018.

And yeah, I know it’s apparently too touchy-feely to openly share social media posts about encouraging guys’ emotional development and happiness or whatever for the new year for many people, but (especially as a girl who grew up with a great dad, male role models like my martial arts instructor, and what feels like a bajillion brothers even though there’s actually only three) I would like to note that it is important to empower men just like it is important to empower women. Or rather, empower men to thus empower themselves, especially to better themselves spiritually and emotionally, NOT only in the workplace or whatever. Encourage growth as a man and as an individual. 

So shout-out to the guys who want a fresh start in 2018.
I’m just some random girl writing a thing, but reminder that you can ALSO find self-respect, self-love, self-confidence/compassion, emotional balance, self-awareness, communication skills, high standards, and all the things that girls’ get to post/share posts about wanting to have in 2018. You can ALSO work towards achieving your dreams and goals, starting/developing a relationship, working towards financial stability, and all of the aims that girls’ get to post about reaching for in 2018. You can ALSO let go of bad habits and work to form new ones, especially about how you view yourself, which is VERY commonly talked about for women but almost NEVER talked about for men.

Shout-out to all the men trying to improve themselves in life– cause not all men are trash, unlike the modern internet likes to claim, and men deserve recognition and encouragement just like women do.
You know that guys rarely get compliments compared to how frequently girls get compliments? Not fair, dude.
Everything talks about great female friendships, sisters, and mothers, but there isn’t much about the power of brotherhood, thanking your male siblings, and thanking all that fathers do for their family. Everyone talks about women being queens, but it’s cringe if anyone tries to describe men as “kings.” But there are some great guys out there, and they deserve encouragement and recognition, too– for more than just superficial accomplishments and titles.
So take a moment and give yourself an encouraging pat on the back, even if there aren’t Facebook posts telling you to do so, guys of the internet 🙂 you don’t have to tell anyone, it’s all good. Just know that you have permission from God to empower yourself, even if the internet isn’t telling you to. 

Remember that the role model, the Prophet SAW, was a man just like you, so feel solid as you model your view of manhood off of him and the Sahaba and other Prophets, even if you don’t have people frequently encouraging you to do so. There are plenty of posts praising Muslim women (which is great) but it’s powerful to be a Muslim man just as it is to be a Muslim woman, and you as a man have unique roles and rights just as a woman does, and this is totally fine.

Best of luck inshallah in 2018! Own this year. End shout-out.

How Dare You: Impossible Standards & Instagram Islam


There’s a dangerous strand of Islam out there, but it isn’t some low-key sect… it’s Instagram Islam, and it needs to chill. Why?

Because it’s teaching something that is unrealistic and not founded in actual Islamic principles, and young people are spreading it like wildfire because they do not know any better. It isn’t just Instagram, you’ll catch it on Facebook, too, and even catch certain Islamic writers, especially geared towards the heartbroken, using it, too– but I’ll call it Instagram Islam because that is where it is rampant.

The prime topics are:

– Iman
– Attachment to the Dunya
– Hardships
– Stuff that’s meant to be

And they’re all twisted.
Okay, this originated on Twitter, but it’s being spread on IG now because a popular ‘grammer shared it and wrote a caption about how “this is goals.”

It seems innocent at first glance, but the issue here is that it’s equating lack of stress with high Iman, which is both ridiculous and ridiculously unrealistic. In general, Instagram Islam preaches that those with high Iman are never heartbroken, never attached to anything, never emotional, never frustrated, never angry. Except that this is incredibly untrue, because the one with the highest Iman of all was our Prophet SAW and HE experienced ALL THOSE THINGS. 
The religious are not those who are impervious to hardships. The religious are those who utilize their faith to help them get through inevitable hardships. 

All the Prophets and all of the Sahaba experienced stress. Why? Because they’re human. The entire point of having Prophets be human is so that humans can relate to them; see a good example to follow. Allah SWT could’ve shown us angels, but no, he showed us humans. Not someone who is perfect, but humans, who live and breathe and bleed just like the rest of us. Humans, who cry sometimes, who miss things and people sometimes, who have favorite places and favorite games, who like nice things and good food, who experience attraction, who get angry sometimes, who experience heartbreak.

The above post is one of many that slip into dangerous territory and I can’t find some worse ones at the moment, but trust me, there are even worse ones, and they’re out there. Yes, “the life of this world is but enjoyment of delusion” (which is referring to worldly pleasures like money and making that what you live for, although it also isn’t at all wrong to make money or even pray for money, but that’s another story) but that doesn’t mean that you can’t love people and places. People use this to justify incredibly unrealistic levels of lack of interest in the dunya instead of comprehending what it actually means.

This quote says that one should never attach their heart to anything other than God, which is not true. You can– you just can’t rely on those people for your entire happiness like you can with God. As in, don’t make a person or a place your God. That’s putting someone above where they realistically are, which isn’t healthy for you or them. But accepting someone/something as they are and loving that? That’s fine.

It does not REMOTELY mean that you are a weak Muslim if you become attached to things in this dunya. Of course you can become attached to other things than Allah SWT! The Prophet SAW was crushed when Khadijjah RA died. Today’s Instagram Islam-ers would dead-serious look him in the face and say “I understand that you’re sad, but you shouldn’t have let your heart get attached to other than Allah.”

NAH MAN. We’re humans! It’s okay to love your family and friends! It’s okay to be attached to them! It’s okay to love a place! An activity! It is okay!

The Prophet SAW and the Sahaba missed Mecca when in Medinah. Today’s Instragram Islam-ers would legit be like “Omg gurl. Don’t be attached to where you used to live; it’s just part of the dunya. You should only be attached to God!”


Strong faith does not mean an unfeeling person who cares about nothing but Allah SWT. These people seem to think that doing something for the sake of Allah means that you’re not doing it with the intention of being kind to a person and instead only doing it to please Allah SWT, when in actuality loving someone for the sake of Allah means loving someone because they are them, versus loving them because they were a part of your clan or family name. You love them under God, not under a title. It’s a pure kind of love. And it doesn’t mean that you can’t miss them if they move, die, or change.

Now the “how dare you.” This is typically about hardships, and it’s spread as using the Prophet SAW to delegitimize people’s struggles, which is one of the worst things, in my opinion, someone could do to someone else in the name of Islam.

This is when someone says something like “I’m really sad because I failed a test” or, “The girl I like said she isn’t interested in me” or, “I feel lost in life because I don’t know what I want to do with it” and someone says something along the lines of:

“How dare you feel sad when THAT happened to you? Ever heard of the Year of Sorrow? How dare any of us feel sad when the Prophet SAW had so many bad things happen to him!! Think of what HE went through and get over yourself!!”

UM. NO. Please stop. Please. 


The Prophet SAW didn’t go through hardships so that people could then use what he went through to tell other people that their troubles don’t matter. His hardships are supposed to be relatable. Whatever we’re going through, he went through something similar, and we can take comfort in knowing that he overcame them, and take comfort in the fact that we aren’t alone, that even the greatest can be affected by things in this life.

Don’t YOU dare try to tell someone that their struggles do not matter. Islam is meant to make our lives easier. This is regardless of what your life is comprised of. The Sahaba would pray when they were stressed over losing a random object; don’t ever make someone feel like their life fitnahs are not worthy. You are allowed to take comfort in the stories of the Prophet SAW even if you’re just sad that your crush doesn’t like you. You are allowed to pray about something that wouldn’t “be a big deal” to someone else who you know. You’re allowed to pray if you lost a shoe. You’re worthy, and don’t let some random Instagram Islam-er tell you otherwise in some twisted form of “motivation” because that is blatantly not what this religion is about and has no place in Islam.


The last one is about stuff that’s meant to be. This is only toxic because people are attempting to use Qadr to justify their choices in life in a backwards way.
Let’s take a look.

WhatsApp Image 2017-11-29 at 5.54.23 PM
Hooo boy. So with this quote and others like it, don’t hold on to people pointlessly, but don’t try and say you know what Allah is doing and use it to justify your choices. Why are you being so presumptuous as to act like you know who “God is trying to remove” and how are you saying that Allah is “trying” when God doesn’t “try” he simply “does” or “doesn’t.”  “Trying” implies that God can fail at removing someone because you’re “not letting him” and that therefore you’ll have your “blessings hindered” whatever these people think THAT means.

Similar veins include quotes that are something along the lines of “If they don’t reach out to you, Allah is trying to close that door, and if you keep them around you’ll be punished by this life” which is, again, implying “trying” and saying that you can prevent God from doing things, justifying angsty thoughts with a whole “Don’t worry about them yo! God doesn’t want them for you and he’s got your back 😛 ” type presumptuous attitude, and claiming some kind of cause-and-effect where you can go against Qadr apparently and then in result of that you’ll be faced with trials, which is both impossible and irrational.

You don’t need these random Instagram philosophies when there are loads of ahadith and quotes from the Quran that can do the trick. These people act like Allah SWT is a part of their girl-squad, and use “meant to be” as a way of justifying whatever they think is or isn’t supposed to be in their life or someone else’s.

Pair this with the “don’t be attached” stuff, the ridiculous view on what constitutes strong Iman, and the how-dare-you view on being affected by hardships, and what do you get? A bunch of guilt-ridden young Muslims who think that the ideal position is basically not caring about anything but God and not even living as a human, and then uses the concept of Qadr to justify all of this. I would say “well maybe it won’t get to anyone” but the problem is, it DOES, and I know people who became Instagram Islam-ers because the media is their prime exposure to Islam as adults.


As a convert, the main thing that got to me was the attachment to the dunya thing. I do believe at one point (and absolutley still in some ways now) I was overly-attached to the dunya in that I gave it too much power over me. That was my main lesson of 2016 (FREAKING CRAP YEAR) was about learning what I allowed to have too much power over me. However, I care about a lot of things in this dunya, and a lot of people. I look to my martial art for contentment and achievement, and I care a lot about my friends and family, among many other examples. So as a younger convert, I was confused as to what exactly this whole “don’t get attached” concept was and if I was potentially viewing something “incorrectly.”

But Wisam Sharieff, who gave a talk about dua a few months ago near me, put it well. “Um, no, bump that” he said when asked about the “don’t ever get attached to anything” Instagram-isms and, therefore, if you were allowed to pray for things in the dunya if you weren’t supposed to get attached, “That’s some warped pseudo-Sufi ‘you can’t care about anything’ ish and it’s way unrealistic. The Sahaba used to pray when they lost a shoe. You can pray for things that you want and it’s totally okay to want things in this life.” 


The moral of the story is, don’t perpetuate self-serving impossible standards.  Your religion AS IT ACTUALLY IS is enough for you, you don’t need teens on Instagram’s random thoughts muddling your mind.

Guilty Unhelpful Girl?

The other day, someone I took classes with in high school posted an anti-Islam post spreading misconceptions about Islam. I haven’t talked to her in years, and when I met her, she used to be a Mormon, and now she’s a very anti-religion anarchist who is quite set in her ways. But we’re still friends on Facebook even though we haven’t talked in so long, because, well, Facebook.
She has a vast amount of followers and they all jumped into the comments section, agreeing and arguing and turning the entire post into a huge mess. Some of them were Muslims who didn’t know what they were talking about and were basically calling her names, which was uncool, especially.
I of course know better than to jump into such a comments argument, but I did consider messaging her and asking to talk about the post and try and clear up the misconceptions.

However, I didn’t do it, and now I feel guilty. 
Not on a religious-based level, but on a personal level– I had a chance to try and spread knowledge, but I didn’t take it. Now she will live her life thinking those same things, potentially forever. Could I have touched a soul? Changed a heart? She could still dislike the concept of organized religion, of course, but at least maybe understood that the specific thing she had posted was a misconception. Maybe I should’ve tried. Was I obligated to as a person? Would I have contacted her if it had been about something else that I love, like martial arts or even some show that I like?

Or perhaps it was more similar to getting into anything politics-related. Perhaps reaching out would be crossing the line; after all, it’s not like she asked me a question and I ignored it, and it’s not like she and I are actual friends. And it’s not like I can talk to EVERYONE EVER who posts some misconception, about ANYTHING. I have many other Facebook friends who clearly would never be open-minded to me reaching out, and so I leave them be. Additionally, it isn’t my job or anyone’s job to correct the world on everything. In general, I am very much against pointing things out that may lead to arguments over the internet.

But with this girl, I know that she enjoys seeking knowledge, too. She posts a lot of good content on her page about being a free-thinker, and has actually been asked to speak on several podcasts etc about her passions. However, she’s also stuck in her ways due to bad experiences with religion in the past, she’s explained.
Additionally, is it even appropriate to reach out to someone who is spreading misconceptions? Sure, if they are your friend and you talk to them, it would be easy to, and, in my opinion, correct, but is it a good idea to if they are NOT your friend, but you just think there’s a small chance that they may be receptive? That you could be the change they needed?

Would I have talked to them if they were posting something about, I dunno, low-fat food being good for you when I’ve learned that it actually isn’t? No, I would not have. But is that because I don’t really care about low-fat food misconceptions, or because I know that the person wouldn’t be receptive?
In general, it takes more than one conversation to change anyone’s opinion. People’s positions in life have very deep roots, and sometimes those roots are too deep to do anything. But additionally, sometimes one little knowledge tidbit can be enough to create a spark of change in someone.
But is it even acceptable to do so, in times like these?

Where does spreading good end and crossing the line begin?

I don’t know; all I know is that I unfortunately still feel guilty.

Should I be feeling guilty right now, or no?

I don’t know the answer. However, I do know that if it had come up in a conversation with someone in real life, I would certainly have spoken with them about it. I’m not being a coward; just unsure.
Perhaps the point is that people tend to be immovable over the internet, so it’s okay to leave them be, but when they connect with a real person in real life, they are more receptive, so as long as you know you would have the right intentions where it counts, you’re okay.

I hope, as I sit here still feeling guilty.
