What does it mean when you keep messing up?

Often when we keep messing up and doing things that stress us out, we end up losing faith in our own abilities to actually follow through with something good. Rely upon the only One who can guarantee you success. Rely upon Allah as Allah clearly gives us the good news in the Quran, Surat 65, 2-3, where He says:

Why do I keep messing up and return to the same sin?

Islam is not rigid and inflexible because Allah is your Creator and knew you would fall into sin. Allah began the Quran with Bismillahi Ar-rahman Ar- Raheem, reminding us that he is the Most Compassionate and the Most Merciful.

Do as the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) did. In other words, Dhikr, read the morning and evening Adhkar, read the Quran and contemplate the verses even for a brief moment. Study the Quran and the Sunnah of the Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him).

What to do if someone messes with you?

Try to avoid small talk. If you suspect someone might mess with you, keep your conversations short. Do not engage in small talk and offer monosyllabic answers to discourage someone from engaging you further. Consider self-defense lessons. If someone messes with you to the point you fear for your own safety, consider self defense lessons.
