This is merely a reminder of all the things that we, as busy, stupid humans tend to forget sometimes. It’s important to know that there are things in life that we’re allowed to do even if we’re being advised otherwise. Because no two human beings are the same and everyone deserves the chance to live the way they want to, the way they need to.
1. You’re Allowed to Hurt
If it hurts, then it hurts. There’s no way around it. Stop trying to cover up for how you feel because someone has told you that whatever’s hurting you isn’t really that much of a deal. They are not you. Your brains do not function the same way. Let it hurt until it doesn’t anymore and then it’s time for you to heal. But don’t spend your life dwelling on your suffering. Let things take their course. Take as much time as you need. But do not lose yourself in the pain.
2. You’re Allowed to be Sensitive
Does it sometimes get to the point where it takes one bad comment in the form of a joke to break you? You’re not crazy. You’re sensitive and the word “sensitive” isn’t an offense, even if it’s being used against you. They tell you to smile about it, to join in and laugh at the joke that you don’t even get. Sometimes, our emotions do get the best of us even if we really don’t want them to. And that’s okay. If someone really cares about you and you make it clear to them that you’re not cool with certain things that they do or with certain things that they say, then they would definitely stop.
3. You’re Allowed to Speak Up
You know how sometimes, in specific conversations with people, you get the feeling that you shouldn’t really contribute nor add to them because it wouldn’t really matter if they listen to what you have to say or not? Well, don’t. That’s ridiculous. You’re allowed to say whatever you want, whenever you want as long as you’re not harming anyone else by it. Your words do matter and you are important even if at times, you feel like a complete nobody. Give yourself a Goddamn chance.
5. You’re Allowed to Want Things
There will come a time in your life when someone will make you feel like you do not deserve what you want. And when that happens, you should either give them the finger or give them the damn finger. One works to get what they want, and if that’s the case with you then fuck what anyone else thinks. If you’re still in doubt, try to really, deeply, thoroughly think about that person’s core intentions behind their rejection of your wants. And trust me, “They’re doing it because they love me” isn’t the answer.
6. You’re Allowed to Laugh
Has someone made you feel like you’re annoying AF because you have a loud laugh? I mean, we all have our little perks that other people might find annoying but goddammit, if you have a loud laugh, then work it! Laugh as loud as you like, as much as you like because the world is already too sad and we can definitely use a little bit of laughter.
7. You’re Allowed to Cut Someone Off
We’ve all done it and if someone says otherwise, then they’re probably lying. Cutting people off is a necessity in life, nothing less. Sometimes, a relationship can get too toxic that the only right thing to do is to cut them off. If you don’t want somebody in your life anymore, then you fucking don’t. Don’t feel bad about it. And if they can’t take a hint, that’s their problem, not yours.
8. You’re Allowed to Have Space
Do you always feel like you’re being watched? Be it by a family member, a partner, or even a best friend. It might be that they try to persuade you into believing that checking your phone, calling you up 18 times a day or tagging along every time you decide to leave the house is a way of showing their love and affection to you. WRONG. To hell with that. The right term for that kind of behavior is “Obsession”.
9. You’re Allowed to Lose
Not every race needs to be won. Aight, too deep. But, for real, though. You don’t have to be the best at everything. You don’t have to prove anything to anyone. You don’t have to be so damn hard on yourself every time you make a mistake or screw something up. Give the perfectionist in you a little time to rest because you need it if you want to get back up.
10. You’re Allowed a Break
You REALLY REALLY REALLY are. That whole “I’ll sleep when I’m dead” thing is absurd and honestly, just idiotic. Your brain needs a break. Your body needs a break. Your whole needs a break. Enough pushing yourself to the edge.
New Platform Launched to Connect Volunteers With Work Opportunities
A new volunteer work portal has been launched yesterday by the Minister of Human Resources and Social Development Ahmed Al-Rajhi, the portal that links between volunteers and providers of volunteer jobs is expected to contribute greatly to the 2030 vision.
The portal aims at providing a platform that will bring together willing volunteers in different fields and provide them with several opportunities, in an attempt to properly organize volunteer work.
Minister Al-Rajhi said that the portal will help support the Kingdom’s efforts towards achieving the goals of the 2030 Vision, through accomplishing sustainable development in all fields.
“The platform will also contribute to meeting the Kingdom’s requirements in the current phase that requires everyone to work together wholeheartedly to serve the country and the society,” the minister said.
This volunteer work portal will be linked to the National Information Center, whereas hours of volunteer work, number of times volunteer work carried out, and the agencies involved in volunteer work will all be documented in the Absher portal of the Ministry of Interior.
The platform also comes in a time where it’s necessary for all of us to join our forces and face the threat of the pandemic, it comes just in time to confront the threat of coronavirus and work together towards putting an end to it.
In light of this, the ministry hopes that the platform will help serve those affected by the pandemic and the damage caused by the virus, by encouraging the capabilities and energies of volunteers in the Kingdom.

The Kingdom Ranked 2nd in The Arab World in World Happiness Report
The Kingdom has been ranked the 2nd in the Arab World and the 27th globally in the World Happiness Report 2020 that includes 156 counties.
The World Happiness Report is issued annually by the UN and it measures the entertainment, happiness and quality of life indices. With all the Kingdom’s efforts in providing citizens with a better quality of life, it made perfect sense for Saudi Arabia to be ranked the second.
The report also evaluated 186 cities from around the world in terms of happiness and entertainment, Madinah made it to the 46th place, while Jeddah was ranked the 59th, Riyadh 62nd and Makkah 65th.
In light of this achievement, the report also expects that Riyadh, Jeddah and Madinah will be listed among the Best Twenty Cities in the World.
Mazrou’ Bin Salah Al-Mazrou’, the Spokesman of the Quality of Life Program highlighted that achieving such a ranking is a true indication of the efforts being exerted in an attempt to maintain social welfare.
“Advancing one place means a lot, as the world is also progressing. We are not alone in the race. The Kingdom has superseded important countries at the global level, like Spain, Italy and South Korea.”
“We’ll exert more efforts to make the Kingdom the pioneering country in terms of quality of life worldwide. This is part of a big movement coming under the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 and other projects launched by the Saudi leadership recently.” He added.
