A mini life update + podcast re-branding + YouTube channel

Hello everyone! How are you doing?! I hope you are staying safe and trying to keep your head up high! If you are not doing okay, please do not stop trusting God and keep trying to be positive. All will be okay, even when it really does not seem like that!

It really feels like it has been a while since I have been on here and I feel very bad about that. A lot has happened though and I removed all my followers here on the blog- this was an okay decision, by the way. I honestly kind of want to start again and start afresh-like a new beginning. I am also thinking of a new name for the blog. So yeah, that is what is up with the blog.

How am I really doing?! No worries, I will be talking about it a little bit here.

Mini life update

Okay, so, I have not really been okay which explains my absence here on the blog. This year has been a lot on me but my trust remains in God and I know that everything will be okay. Yeah, so I took a halt on my blog and podcast for the majority of January and I recently came back at the end of January. I honestly do not want to give up, so here I am fighting to keep going despite everything I am going through.

I have had a lot of bad days this year and it has been very not nice because whenever I go through that kind of day, I really don’t want to get out of bed and I just want to sit alone in a dark room. It’s not nice at all but I am fighting and trying to keep my head up high and to keep being positive; it has not been easy but I just have to keep fighting for myself, you know. That’s the life update:))

Podcast Re-branding

Alright, about my podcast re-branding that I told you all about some time ago, it’s been a mess. Due to all I am going through, I honestly took a halt there too. Although most of the work has already been done, I still have to catch up all the posts from the old Instagram page on the new Instagram page and that really is all that is left. This is not even hard to do, I have just not been able to get myself to do it but I will take it one thing at a time, and by the end of February, hopefully I will be done.

By the way, if you do not already know about this, I have a podcast called, “Talkative and Christian”. It is a podcast that is majorly about self-improvement, raising awareness on different controversial issues, and faith(Christianity). If you are interested, you can go to anchor.fm/talkativeandchristian. Thank you!

YouTube channel

I have a YouTube channel! It’s called “Barakat Jay” on YouTube. You can go check out my YouTube channel if you would like and while you are there, please subscribe and watch the videos. Thank you!

This is something I am really excited about and I hope it really works out amazingly well:))

Well, that is all for today’s post. I just wanted to update you all and get back on here to start writing again. As always, thank you for your support, I really appreciate it.

You can leave a comment, introducing yourself to me! I want to know more about my readers! Also, tell me how you are really doing in the comments.

I will see you all later! Byee!!

Don’t forget that God loves you forever and that you are never alone:))

Why do I like talking about controversial issues so much?

Wawu!! I know I have been gone for a while now. I am really really sorry to my faithful readers. I had to clear my head and reconstruct my blog because I want you all to see premium content while still being myself( I hope you understand). Anyway, I have made some nice changes to this blog and that means more amazing content coming your way. Y’all better be prepared!!

Okay, enough of the unnecessary talk. Let me not waste your time too much and just go ahead into what you are going to be reading about today.

If you follow me on Instagram, see my status posts on WhatsApp, listen to my podcast or just know me personally, you should know that I am very very passionate about speaking up on every issue that is going on in our society that spikes up controversy. We all know that they are so many topics in our society that really deserve attention and we all know that everyone has their own opinions on all these topics. We also know that they are some people who are lost amidst everything and they do not even understand these topics or know what to think of them, that is where I come in. I mean, you can think of me as an educator or maybe a teacher or maybe an activist or maybe a public speaker or maybe a talkative or maybe someone with a lot of sense. Whatever rocks your boat!

Okay, so I am someone that loves to speak up. Whenever I see or hear something that I think is morally wrong, I do not hesitate to talk about it. Also, if I watch a movie or read a book and it talks about some things that are part of our society and I think they are really wrong, I talk about them or I make a post relating to those things on one of my many social media platforms. Just in case you have been wondering all these while, the main reason why I talk about these issues or topics is to bring awareness to them. If I do not play my part and talk about these things, how will people know about these things and learn?? Honestly, I think that it is really important to speak up about things because you do not know who needs to hear it or needs to learn about that thing.

Another thing is that I think a lot of people have been brainwashed by this society we live in. There are so many traditions and cultural rules that are very very flawed but people do not know that and they keep believing these things. So many people have been brainwashed by their culture and traditions to think that doing certain things is okay but due to the evolution of the world, these things are extremely wrong now. Some of the topics that culture/tradition/society has brainwashed people on are Rape, Toxic Masculinity, Domestic Violence, Mental Health Issues, Marriage, Abuse, Gender Equality, Toxic Parenting, amongst many others.

The reason for my passion and my general goal is to spread awareness to as many people as I can and to debunk a lot of these topics that people have been brainwashed on. Also, my goal is to help people see how the world has evolved and to understand that certain things are just not okay anymore. I really really hope that people gain something or learn something whenever I talk about these controversial topics/issues because my main goal is to educate everyone. If you really want to be educated on a lot of controversial issues/topics, you can check out my podcast https://anchor.fm/ctamwithbee

This is what my podcast looks like, by the way.

Lastly, let me just tell you about where and how “age” comes into all of this. So, the thing is that older people tend to look down on the younger ones because they think that the young ones probably know little compared to them. This is actually very wrong because your age does not matter in speaking up about these issues and topics. Due to your young age, it does not mean that you lack sense or reasoning. Do not let anybody look down on you because you are young. Greta Thunberg is just 17 years old and she speaks up about the things that she is very passionate about that even older people do not have the courage to do. Honestly, I do not care that I am young and my age is never going to stop me from talking about controversial issues and topics. Do not be discouraged by your age, just do your thing and speak up about whatever you feel so much passion for.

By the way, if you are confused about what the “WAWU” that I used in the beginning means, it literally just means WOW. So, I hope you are wowed by this post.(#don’tleavemešŸ˜‚)
