HAVE THE COURAGE TO LIVE YOUR DREAMS AND PURSUE YOUR PASSIONS!

Becoming an artist isnt easy especially if you come from a conservative family and cultures such as South Asian or Middle Eastern. My family didnt speak to me for 8 years because they couldn't come to terms with me becoming an artist because I would bring "shame upon the family".

It's the single greatest choice I made for myself and I urge you to do the same. Live your life, your family may be upset temporarily but at the end of the day they will respect you for being true to yourself. Mine certainly did!

BE BRAVE. PURSUE YOUR DREAMS.

You Matter!!

Sharing your inner most deep struggles and pain with the world can be scary and the fact that someone chooses to do that to not only empower themselves but also others is truly beautiful.

If you're being shamed by some ignorant assholes for sharing them, tell them to go fuck themselves! Tell them Mona Shaikh said so.

MENTAL HEALTH IS THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU MUST TAKE CARE OF!

Fuck Mental Health Stigma. Go out there, take care yourself. The only time you're crazy is when you dont take care of it.

NO SHAME. JUST HEALING!
