  • 💡
    Learning our limitations and boundaries is necessary for strengthening relationships with ourselves and others, as relationships are a constant state of approaching and distancing.
  • 💭
    "Humanity is a burden and an obligation. That’s why good manners are the heaviest in our scales on the day of resurrection."
  • 💡
    Contractualism is about breaking the cycle of reacting to each other's actions and responding reasonably instead to avoid perpetuating wrongdoing in relationships.
  • 💰
    According to Ibn Al Muqafa, a true friend is someone for whom you are willing to give your blood and money, highlighting the depth of the relationship.

    A dead relationship, where there are no demands or obligations, is not life, and a spouse is crucial for finding comfort and peace in life.
  • 🚴‍♀️
    Relationships are like riding a bicycle, and slowing down or being inconsistent won't create them, but recovering from a fall strengthens the relationship.

Importance of Self-Acceptance and Improvement

  • 💡
    The larger the void between who you are and who you present, the more depression, shame, and a sense of unworthiness you'll feel, which will affect your relationships.
  • 🧐
    Complimenting and developing oneself through small steps can help heal self-contempt and make one invincible to hurtful comments.
  • 💕
    Self-acceptance is not about stopping self-improvement, but rather about loving and accepting yourself while still striving for better health and well-being.
  • 💡
    To be a better person, you must be truthful to yourself in front of the right people.
  • 💡
    Moral authority is the most powerful authority because it lasts, unlike other forms of authority that can change with situations and circumstances.

Understanding and Navigating Attachment Styles in Relationships

  • 💔
    "The attached person is like a raging bull. It smashes everything in its way to the redness of its loved one. Looking back, he finds his family, friendships, and interests all ruined."
