Most of the people don’t research before they work as a freelancer, whether it is part-time or full-time. Similarly, I didn’t research about it, I just wanted to make a couple of bucks with the knowledge I possessed. By the time I joined freelancing platforms, I was completing my CAIE A level. So I possessed a knowledge of high school student, we can say. I didn’t have a specialization in any field.

Have you ever wondered why am I going down to this path? Will it do any good for me? What will the ones who love me think after they find it out? Will I feel any better? Will it take the pain away?

These types of questions should come before a person chooses this path. But it doesn’t as they are surrounded by dreadful experiences which block their clear thinking. This horrible path is self-harm, which further leads to suicide attempts.

About Me — Muhammad Ali Siddiqui

I am Muhammad Ali Siddiqui, a 19-year-old teenager from Karachi, Pakistan. Currently, I am studying bachelor's (honours) in applied physics at the University of Karachi. My hobbies include; playing table tennis, writing, and socializing with limited friends.

I manage my friend’s medium account. Writing helps me express myself out. I am the author of “The Dumb Detective” & “The Finger He Kept”.

My Relationship with Parents:

From the very beginning, I was shy. I used to be very less confident. For me, talking to new people, even if the person was of the same gender or not, was an arduous task to do. I would hope that someone would either invite me to join them or come to me with the group. When I would see a bunch of kids play together, I wanted to join them but was too shy to talk to them. …

A Persian Philosopher, Imam Ghazali, once said,

The tongue is very small and light, but it can take you to the greatest heights and it can put you in the lowest depths. ~ Imam Ghazali.

Sometimes a person needs less than a minute to motivate anyone. Whether through speech or text, you have to be yourself. A pinch of soft and kind-heartedness can motivate anyone. Your message alone can make a person happy.

Let me give you an example; you might have experienced it too. …

Oh no! You find out that your article was rejected. The note says, “Unfortunately, we will pass it on. Try again next time.”. …

While surfing on the internet, a website caught my sight. There was a list of Snap chat usernames on the website. I tried to add them, by sending them friend request, in my friend’s list, but only one added me back. That’s how I met the girl with whom I didn’t expect to fall in love with.

I was 17 years old, an immature teenager who was very shy to even talk to girls. Life was stressful because of the burden of studies. My daily routine included getting up in the morning for classes, studying at home for different tests, and completing loads of homework. …
