Ramadhan, 2 weeks in: 10 emotions I feel on a daily basis

10 emotions you feel when you're fasting

 

I actually can’t believe we’re already halfway into Ramadhan!?!? I feel like the two weeks have passed by in a blink, but then again when faced with a daily 18 hours fast, sometimes it does feel like time has stood still.

I thought I’d take a few moments to reflect on how it’s all going, and I decided the best way to express my every day struggles was with the help of some very good Friends:

 

1. Constantly trying to convince people it’s perfectly fine to look at food, because you know, you genuinely don’t feel hungry…

 

2. Even though all you want to do is attach yourself to the end of that sandwich…

 

3. You find yourself trying to come up with creative ways to stop your breath from reaching the person you’re talking to.

 

4. And most of the day revolves around trying not to fall asleep…

 

5. When it gets close to sunset, every minute counts, h-anger starts to set in…

 

6. And pretty much everything starts to look like dinner…

 

7. As soon as its time to break fast, restraint is not easy…

 

8. And although you’ve prepared a feast, it’s a mission to get past the starter…

 

9. But you know you have to power through to survive the next 18 hour fast…

 

10. And just when you’ve finished and you’re beginning to feel normal …it’s time to start the 18 hours all over again!

 

How are you finding Ramadan this year?

Have you got a fasting friend who’s going through these emotions?

  • I have great admiration for everyone fasting for Ramadan. I just don’t think I’d be able to do it! It was great fun joining in with some friends of ours sunset feasts last week, the food was wonderful and it was amazing to chat with them about it 🙂
