Hi, I'm an 18 year old Muslim female. Lately I've been thinking of how I want to live my life. I have come to the conclusion that I want to be famous, I want to have a positive influence on people's lives and the world, and I want to spread positive messages.
I want to do comedy, it's something I've always wanted to do and think I might have a slight chance at succeeding in.
I want to be wealthy because currently I live with my family and we just about have enough to pay rent and even that is a problem sometimes. I want to be able to give back to them and I want to help the poor to get back on their feet. Maybe I can open up a school or an orphanage one day if I make enough. I just want to do good.
However my parents don't agree with my dreams. And I'm scared I'll lose them because I love them. I don't want the community to talk bad about them, I don't want to disobey them but at the same time I have my own dreams you know?
I'm scared what I'm doing may be wrong in the eye of the Creator, and yeah I know the materialistic life is temporary and that in Heaven it will be so much better and permanent but I don't want to live a life of sadness because that's what I'm living right now and I hate it so much to the point where sometimes I don't want to live anymore.
I just, I'm torn between my dreams, my faith and my family/culture and I don't know what to do. I feel so confused and sad. Sometimes I try to convince myself to give all of it up and live a modest life but I can't get it out of my head, I want this so much.
Any advice or guidance please?
