Life Can Be Hard -- Don't Make It Harder, Anton

Well, let's see: my father is still very frail and needs regular assistance. My aunt and uncle were in an accident on Saturday and I'm helping to look after Uncle (who is uninjured but is frail and has Alzheimer's) while Aunt (too badly injured to carry out her usual role as his caregiver) is hospitalized.

And then there are a couple of other obligations that I won't even go into here.

And on top of all that, whenever someone says something complimentary or encouraging, or inquires solicitously how I am holding up, I feel as though I am somehow being insulted. Not a good attitude to take, I really must work on it.

As a white person, I try to call out other whites if they even show the slightest hint of racism...it makes me feel better about myself. Plus, I bought a Koran, because white people are the cause of all the muslims problems....I feel so guilty :(

1) What does this comment have to do with what I posted? Or is it just a random excretion you happened to drop here?

2) Most Muslims, including all Arab Muslims, are white persons also. In any event, what is your point?

3) Keep reading your Quran, and you may find that a lot of your confusion clears up. Try to read with an open mind.
